Comic genius, Lenny Henry, was finally given his own sitcom between 1993-1996. Chef! was about an arrogant, bombastic chef and his relationships with his work colleagues and long-suffering girlfriend Janice. Obviously, Lenny had the main part as the chef, Gareth Blackdtock, who ran the kitchen at Chateau Anglais restaurant. It was well written and acted, but for some reason it wasn't actually very funny. There were three seasons of Chef!, accumulating 20 episodes in all.
