Hotel GB (pka Hotel Britannia) -Some of Channel 4’s biggest names come together to get Britain working. Head boy Gordon Ramsay and head girl Mary Portas will be joined by some of Channel 4’s biggest talent and together they will take over a hotel and turn it into a fund-raising machine and training ground for a range of currently unemployed people desperate for a break.
Each of the C4 faces will mentor two of the hotel’s workers – train them and support them – and every day there will be a major event or challenge in the hotel designed to raise money and test the emerging skills of the staff. Meanwhile, members of the public can book to stay in the hotel or visit the spa and restaurant – and pay for the services on offer.
