Fred’s first notable on-screen role arrived in the form of BBC2 show Michel Roux’s Service, during which Fred co-hosted alongside the two-star Michelin chef. He went on to assume the roles of Maître D and Cupid in the hugely popular Channel 4 show, First Dates, culminating in a BAFTA Award for Best Reality and Constructed Factual show in 2016. The series has shown no sign of losing its edge, with First Dates and First Dates Hotel continue to make irresistible viewing out of some unlikely matches.
