Come Dine With Me is a popular Channel 4 television programme shown in the United Kingdom, produced by ITV Studios (formerly known as Granada) and as of 2013, Shiver Productions and first broadcast in January 2005. The show has either four or five amateur chefs competing against each other hosting a dinner party for the other contestants. Each competitor then rates the host's performance with the winner winning a £1,000 cash prize. An element of comedy is added to the show through comedian Dave Lamb, who provides a dry and "bitingly sarcastic" narration.[2]

The format has been taken up by many other broadcasters throughout the world.

International broadcasts[edit]

As well as being repeated on Channel 4, their sister channel More4 also regularly broadcasts past episodes on Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons, with all five programmes from a week shown consecutively in a block. Episodes from the first series are also regularly shown on Discovery Real Time, DMAX UK, Discovery Travel & Living, and Discovery Home & Health.

The programme is shown:

Derivative formats[edit]

On 21 March 2007 it was announced that rival broadcaster ITV1 had commissioned a new daytime programme, House Guest from Granada Productions, a part of the same company which also produces Come Dine With Me.[3] The format for House Guest is very similar to that of Come Dine With Me, in that several contestants visit each other's houses over a week, in which they host dinner parties and grade each other out of 10 in private, even the scoreboard layout is the same. The difference is that in House Guest, guests 'draw toothbrushes' to see who will stay overnight at the host's house, to judge their hospitality skills, awarding them a separate grade.

Series 4: Primetime[edit]

An hour-long primetime Christmas special was also produced during the middle of the series, using a slightly different format to suit the shorter timeslot. Only four contestants took part with each making a separate course for the dinner: starter, fish course, main course, and dessert. After each course the person cooking the next part of the meal would leave to complete their dish at home, which had been prepared earlier, before being joined by the other guests.

During filming of the Basingstoke edition, Spencer Uren told his fellow contestants that his sister had cancer and that, if he won the competition, he would be donating the £2000 prize money to the hospital that was treating her. Shortly after filming, Uren was himself diagnosed with cancer and died after a short battle with the disease. The episode in which Uren cooks was dedicated to him.[13]

His fellow contestant Gill Buley, with the support of Gabrielle Hennig and Richard Carpenter, started a charity, Come Dine For Spencer,[14] to raise money for the hospital that treated him, Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital.[15]
