Dawn French and Emilia Fox are returning for a second series of TV drama ‘Delicious’ next month – and this time they will be joined by Italian film star Franco Nero. ‘Delicious’ centres on Dawn and Emilia’s characters in a story of love, food and friendship.
Dawn French plays cook Gina, who has inherited the Penrose hotel and restaurant together with the glamorous Sam (Emilia Fox) – both former wives of the deceased head chef Leo Vincent (Iain Glen).
Since Sky One’s last visit to the Penrose, Gina and Sam’s business has been booming, their delicate friendship has lasted and they are on the lookout for a new protégé in the kitchen.
Unfortunately, it’s not long before the dynamics of family, love, rivalry and life start to get in the way of their success. Not least when Gina’s estranged father (Franco Nero) turns up at the doorstep, combined with further surprises from the past and the impact of Leo’s legacy. Delicious also stars Sheila Hancock as Leo’s mother Mimi and Iain Glen as Leo Vincent. Aaron Anthony also joins the cast as Adam, the new protégé at the Penrose hotel.
The four-part series will air on Sky One in late December.
