Cancelled Rivival[edit]

The series was set to be revived in 2016 by ITV Studios for the Nine Network.[5][6] however on 14 April 2016, the series was shelved due to production issues and Nine implementing changes after a bad start to the ratings year.[7][8]


The unscripted show follows celebrity chefs competing against each other in hosting a dinner party for the other contestants. Each week over four nights, four celebrities take it in turns to cook up their idea of the perfect evening for the other four. Each believes they can cook up the perfect evening and hopes their unique style will clinch them the title of best host and the $2000 cash prize for charity. [9]
