Fans of First Dates Hotel have a new favourite character.
It’s not suave restaurant manager Fred Sirieix or stunning waitress CiCi Coleman, however, but a receptionist who seems incapable of holding her tongue.
Meet First Dates Hotel receptionist and restaurant manager Francesca – AKA the sexual innuendo queen!
Who else wants Francesca to be their personal love guru? 🙋♀️ #FirstDatesHotel

Who is Francesca?
Francesca goes by the full name of Francesca Martusciello.
First Dates Hotel is set at the beautiful Aquapetra Resort & SPA in Southern Italy, where Francesca has been the restaurant manager since March 2017.
The miniature Italian was previously the Head Sommelier at the Bath Priory, Bath, before moving back to Italy.
While Fred may be the big gun at the First Dates restaurant in London – Paternoster Chop House – it’s Fran’s show to run on First Dates Hotel.
What is a Master Sommelier?
Although we often see Francesca messing about with the others on the receptionist desk, she is the restaurant manager.
She’s a Master in French Wines, where you can get an official degree from the Wine Scholar Guild in Washington, DC.
According to Fran’s Instagram account, she’s still studying to become a Master Sommelier, which would be a seriously massive accomplishment.
There have been only 249 people who have earned the Master Sommelier title since its inception of The Court of Master Sommeliers in 1969.
The title would rank Francesa as one of the best in hospitality business worldwide, with a degree that boasts outstanding tasting and evaluation skills, wine knowledge and business management.
Francesca on First Dates Hotel
First Dates Hotel fans have loved Francesca’s cheeky and playful ways, especially when alongside head receptionist Michela Contini.
One thing Fran seems to have a lust for is passion, as she is consistently telling tales of romance.
Like that time in the forest…
