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.

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.

Special episodes[edit]

On 19 November 2010, a special short episode of Come Dine With Me aired during the annual Children in Need telethon featuring the UK cast of Dragons' Den except for James Caan, who opted out. The premise of this show was that the male dragons Duncan Bannatyne, Peter Jones, and Theo Paphitis each cooked a course for their guest Deborah Meaden.[24]

On 6 June 2012, More4 aired a "top 30" episode which featured clips of previous episodes. This episode is filed under Series 27 by Channel 4 which does not currently contain any other episodes.
