Each week, five strangers take it in turn to throw the perfect dinner party, before being secretly scored out of ten by their guests. Standby for disastrous desserts, bitchy backstabbing and dirty discussions, as they each play to win the €1000 prize and be crowned best host of the week.
Twelve more wide-eyed recruits head to ICA HQ where essential life-skills training, and the mentors, await. With the recession, modern life has gotten a whole lot tougher for Ireland's pampered twenty-somethings. A whole generation is waking up to the fact that they never learned the skills that could help keep the wolf from the door in difficult economic times. Enter the ICA mentors - Josephine, crafts instructor, Marie, the kitchen supremo and chief mentor Imelda - to show our young spendthrift singletons the error of their ways.
It may be the sport of kings but horseracing is not for the faint-hearted as we find out in 'Jockey Eile'. Sean Bán Breathnach and Joe Connolly go in search of Ireland's next Top Jockey. Twenty young hopefuls start out but week by week the fall off and fall out one by one until we get to the big race and find out who is the top 'Jockey Eile'.
'MasterChef' Ireland saw fifty hopefuls chasing a place in the final 16. The outstanding amateur cooks that made it through were put through a series of intense culinary tasks and challenges testing their talent, skill and determination. Over the following weeks they were faced with complex culinary challenges from taste tests and mystery boxes, to mass catering, fish cookery and Indian cuisine right up to the intricacies of pastry, fine dining and Michelin-starred cooking, and more. Contestants were eliminated at different stages of the series until there was one winner.
