Couples COME DINE WITH ME Starts

My wife is addicted to Come Dine With Me. We have to watch repeated episodes over and over again most evenings and on a Sunday afternoon. Sadly, over the last few months the programme  has become less of a cooking competition and more about contestants' entertainment between courses and how they get along with each other. Karaoke, dancing and table games take up as much of the show as buying and preparing the food. Marking each other out of ten, seems to be less about the quality and presentation of the food and more about the evening's fun value and whether contestants like each other or not. But things are about to change. Come Dine With Me is set for double the tension as producers invite couples to compete together on a new revamped show.

Couples Come Dine With Me starts tonight at 5pm on Channel 4 and the new format will see three sets of couples vying to win the £1000 cash prize by preparing and hosting a dinner party together. Producers of the show say pairs can be romantically involved, housemates or family members. Each couple will cook for the other two teams, rate each other’s culinary skills and give their own views on one another’s relationships in the 30 hour-long episode series.

David Sayer, commissioning editor for Channel 4 Daytime said to The Daily Telegraph: “This new series will have everything viewers love about Come Dine With Me plus an exciting new twist which will see whether couples can stand the pressure of throwing a dinner party for demanding guests and with a cash prize at stake.”

Don't Miss It Tonight at 5pm on Channel 4!
