Cook Clever, Waste Less with Prue and Rupy

Culinary legend and 'queen of leftovers' Prue Leith teams up with food expert Rupy Aujla to help British families tackle food waste and save money.

Every year in the UK people throw almost 14-billion pounds worth of food in the bin – it's bad for the planet and disastrous for our wallets.

But with creative meal-planning, genius food hacks and mouth-watering recipes – Prue and Rupy are going to teach families to Cook Clever and Waste Less.

In the series premiere: This week fraught parents David & Nadya from Bristol are at their wits end.

Like many people in the UK their sons have food allergies and trying to cater to them is making mealtimes stressful, adding a hefty amount to the weekly shopping bill, and creating a lot of food waste.

Prue and Rupy have designed a cunning time and money saving food plan that's gluten and dairy free.

Recipes include an edible burrito bowl, a rich parsnip cake and a delicious smoothie that uses up banana skins.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill: This week we're in West Yorkshire where busy single mum Danielle wants to cook healthy vegan meals for her two girls, but all too often resorts to takeaways and frozen food.

Their food waste is out of control, not helped by her slavish devotion to best before dates.

Prue and Rupy's delicious vegan meal plan gets her batch-cooking simple tasty meals with no need for takeaways.

Recipes include a takeaway inspired BBQ corn ribs with homemade baked beans and slaw, a delicious spring Panzanella salad that uses up one of the UK's most wasted foods and a novel way to transform flat fizzy pop.

In a tropical paradise, American men embark on an epic adventure to find "the one" in a group of women from all over the world.

In this relationship series, three American bachelors travel to paradise where they will be joined by 12 women from nine different countries, who don't speak any English.

Without a shared language or the use of a translator, this series explores how singles looking for love come together in the attempt to find a connection.

In spending time together and focusing on getting to know one another, Love & Translation will showcase raw, genuine moments in a unique dating environment.

With challenges that include utilising the five senses such as uninterrupted eye gazing and pheromone attraction tests, as well as adrenaline-pumping group date activities, these singles will try to learn about each other without the gift of language.

And if the singles aren't feeling that loving feeling with anyone, they can pack up their bags and look for love elsewhere.

Love & Translation aims to find out what it takes to make a love connection when language is too foreign.

When their wedding day arrives, will real-world realities and external factors push them apart, or will they marry the person they fell blindly in love with?
