Picture Shows: Restaurant and Interiors

Picture Caption: Hell’s Kitchen is returning and the first ever british chef to achieve three Michelin stars – before handing them back – is in charge.

Marco, described as the ‘godfather of cooking’, will use his considerable talents to transform a group of celebrities into chefs in just two weeks. And he is already promising to take no prisoners as he attempts to turn the famous trainees into fully fledged chefs.

Britain’s original rock star chef is sure to feel the heat as he steps back up to the serving plate, and he could employ some of his old school tactics to knock both the trainees and celebrity diners into shape.

In the past his legendary temper has resulted in him throwing irritating staff into the bin and dumping customers out on the street. his bid for perfection may have earned him three michelin stars, but how will he cope in the ultimate celebrity diner?

Will the customers go hungry, and who will feel the heat and be forced out of the kitchen should the trainee celebrity chefs fail to meet his exacting standards?
