Fred Sirieix has JAMAICA in his sights if there is to be another series of First Dates Hotel.
The beloved Frenchman, 51, has revealed talks are currently taking place between Channel 4 bosses and producers.
He told The Sun: “We’re discussing different things that we could do – whether we can do it is another story, but we’re talking about things.”
“I would love to do the First Dates Hotel in Negril, Jamaica, that would be great. I am sure there would be many people who would apply.”
He’s also working on other new projects that he “don’t want to talk about” at the moment, but he’s busy brainstorming: “There’s a lot of things I want to do. There is always something.”
Still, his family back in France will neither listen nor be impressed: “When shows are translated in France, she watches it, but my mother is not obsessed with it, I’m her son and she doesn’t give a damn.” . Just like she doesn’t watch my brother, a cancer researcher, at work. It’s just her son going to work and doing something.”
He also addressed using boxing to overcome his fear of public speaking: “Boxing really helped me when I was younger. I was always afraid to step into the ring before a fight.”
“I was sweating and scared, but once I started boxing, the fear went away.”
“So what I would tell myself if I did [public speaking] It was like boxing, so you just have fun and get into the rhythm of things.
“I’m too old now [to become professional], I won’t see the blows coming. But when I was younger, yeah – you had to be good and I wasn’t good enough.”
Fred also confirmed that he would be “moving on” with his travel show Gordon, Gino & Fred’s Road Trip.
His conversation took place in connection with a Beware of the Bugs campaign.
