Rob Rinder has been announced as Monica Galetti's new co-host for luxury travel series Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond the Lobby.
The Judge Rinder star, who has also taken part in Strictly Come Dancing, will take over from MasterChef star's previous co-presenter Giles Coren on the BBC Two series.
It sees Rinder and Galetti visit eight renowned hotels where they will work alongside the skilled staff to learn tricks of the trade that customers enjoying a dream break will never see.
Rinder said: “I can’t wait to explore some of the world’s most extraordinary hotels and go beyond the lobby to meet the fascinating communities of people who run them in order to learn what it is that make them such once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Luckily, I’ll have Monica by my side to keep me in check.”
Galetti added: “I’m very excited to have a new partner in crime to discover eight awe-inspiring locations. I’m looking forward to seeing Rob get stuck in when we roll up our sleeves to work alongside the dedicated hotel staff.”

Chef Galetti has recently stepped back from her 14-year stint hosting and judging MasterChef: The Professionals, saying that she needed time to focus on her family and rebuilding her businesses which were hit hard by COVID closures.
She will appear as a guest judge in the finals of this year's contest, but has been temporarily replaced by Anna Haugh.
Meanwhile, Rinder has carved out a new role for himself as one of Good Morning Britain's regular relief presenters.
Earlier this year, the ITV breakfast show featured barrister Rinder's journey to the Ukraine border in search of his Strictly dance partner Oksana Platero's elderly relatives who were fleeing the war.
Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond the Lobby will have eight new episodes which begin filming this month and will air in 2023.
Executive producer Adeline Ramage Rooney said: “We are beyond thrilled that Rob is embarking on this brand new series of Amazing Hotels alongside Monica. As an outsider to the hospitality industry and mega fan of the finer things in life, Rob brings an authentic sense of wonder and a fresh new perspective to one of our most popular series. We can’t wait to share eight glorious new episodes with audiences soon.”
