Cheltenham cooks wanted to star in Come Dine With Me
FAME-HUNGRY chefs in Cheltenham will have a chance to show off their culinary skills in front of millions.
They are being invited to apply for a spot on the latest series of Channel Four hit Come Dine With Me when it comes back to film in the town this spring.
The popular TV cookery programme has collected a wide fanbase since it burst on to our screens in 2005.
Each contestant hosts a dinner party, with guests voting on the quality of the night out of 10. The top score of the week wins £1,000 in cash.
Sunday and Monday evenings £12.00 per head for an all inclusive meal with Indian and Thai cuisine (normal price £14.50).
Bring this voucher to the restaurant complete with your name and email address on it.
Terms: Expires 31st July
Contact: 01452 223782
Valid until: Wednesday, July 31 2013
Bosses of the show are visiting the town to begin filming later this year.
This will not mark the first time Gloucestershire has featured on the popular programme.
Lady of the manor Vanessa Wegmann cooked up a treat when the show first came to Cheltenham in 2010.
Marc Harris, of Hayes Road, Pittville, invited the cameras and a group of strangers into his home in February 2011 – and walked off with the top prize. The web designer whipped up tapas and chocolate tequila brownies to earn top marks from his guests.
"I was quite quiet on the programme – everyone else had big personalities," said Marc.
"You saw only five per cent of the real me. It was a bit surreal."
Largely thanks to wise-cracking narrator Dave Lamb, the show has gathered a huge army of admirers, with many wanting to make it onto the show themselves.
Dave is famous for mocking the kitchen antics of contestants, and will cast his eye and wicked wit over the latest home cooks from Cheltenham following the filming in May.
The popularity of the show has spread far and wide, with Australia, America, New Zealand and Scandinavia all airing their own versions.
A host of celebrities have also taken part, helping raise thousands for charity.
Budding chefs wanting to take part must be free from May 6 to 10. To sign up, call 0871 244 4142 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
