The new series of The Restaurant kicks off with rugby legend Donncha O'Callaghan brining his culinary - and singing - skills to the show.

Is there no limit to this man's talents?

Cooking for Marco Pierre White and new judge Rachel Allen, O'Callaghan creates a Clonakilty black pudding starter, servied with a fried egg and a homemade version of Worcestershire sauce (a clue to the identity of this Corkonian who now plays for Worcester Warriors in England).

However, he surprises everyone with his dessert - a 'Frozen' inspired creation in the form of Olaf, the snowman from Disney's hit animated film, which in turn inspires the rugby star's aforementioned singing.

Let's hope the judges are inspired by Donncha's snowman dessert!

This series will also see celebs weather and National Lottery presenter Nuala Carey, Eurovision winner Paul Harrington, singer Mary Coughlan, doctor and broadcaster Dr Ciara Kelly and actress Aoibhinn Garrihy attempt to earn the maximum five stars for their efforts.

The Restaurant airs tomorrow night, Wednesday 21St February at 9pm on TV3
