It’s a wonderful restaurant.” Co-host Harry Smith added: “Probably impossible to get a reservation now, right?”

Guest co-host Amanda Holden, judge of the talent show ‘Britain’s Got Talent,’ remarked: “Oh, that’s so sweet.” Rodriguez agreed: “I know, it is sweet.” Holden went on: ” They’re such a good looking couple, aren’t they? Fantastic.”
