Giving back to the industry in which he made his name, and which almost buckled under the weight of a global pandemic, Fred’s Last Resort will see TV’s favourite French maître d recruit 10 young people at a crossroads in their lives and throw them into a life changing, highly demanding role in the exacting world of luxury, high-end hotel hospitality.


Located in a spectacular hotel on the French Riviera, the area where Fred himself trained as a youngster, the team will welcome clientele from across the globe who will expect nothing less than premium service. If the recruits make it through the season, they will not only have learned some very exclusive, new transferrable skills to help them succeed in life, but one of them will receive a life-changing prize.

Or are you stuck in a rut and want to make a change whilst having some fun in the sun? If you or someone you know has what it takes to go from zero to hero in the world of hospitality, apply at:
