My name is Jo and I'm a Masterchef addict.
I can't help it. It's the sight of all that food, being whipped up into something either masterly, or miserably school dinner.
But I can't say I'm interested in what's going on in the dining room, to whence viewers are now being hauled to watch waiters battle it out for super-dooper stardom (of the subservient, obsequious, faceless kind, presumably) with chef of chefs, Michel Roux.
The Michelin-starred maestro's new TV show contest, Service, started on Tuesday night .
Supposedly, Roux believes the UK industry's service is crummy - and that the public is ignorant of the hard work that good service entails.
Though it could just be that when producers pitched him the idea, he was game-on for the publicity and the pay check. Or is that me being cynical?
Which members of the catering industry will telly thrust into the spotlight next, then?
The washer-uppers going head to head for the sparkliest and squeakiest glasses?
