There is no Next Episode of Come Dine with Me planned.
In this brand new episode the culinary competition is in and around Preston, where the first to host is 29-year-old men's barber Lottie, affectionately known as 'Foghorn'. Lottie hopes to bob off with the £1000 prize by hosting a night of fun and flavoursome food. Her guests are family man Martin, vegan reike healer Justina and company director Anthony. With a fancy dress photo booth for entertainment, pungent pillows and a wet dog thrown in for good measure, will Lottie's dinner party bag her the prize?
In this brand new episode, second to host in Preston is support worker Martin Ainsworth, who hopes his menu of classics with a twist will go down a treat with his guests. The night starts well when men's barber Lottie is pleasantly surprised by the risky black pudding starter. Unfortunately, sales director Anthony's steak is overcooked and the chocolate brownie dessert is dry. The food's not the only thing that doesn't go down well, as vegan Justina finds the noise levels all a bit much, with the main culprit being Lottie. It's a noisy night with some passion and poetry thrown in, but will it be enough to bag Martin the £1000 prize?
In this brand new episode it's the third day of the competition, and fragrance seller Justina is hoping to wow her guests with a vegan menu. She's got a trick up her sleeve and will be performing reiki on her food to make sure she's in with a chance of winning the £1000 prize. It's an entertaining night with support worker Martin and loud Lottie in fits of giggles over Justina's demonstration of an unusual event involving an arrow that could kill a 20-foot bear. Whilst company director Anthony may not be the biggest fan of the meat-free food, he hasn't laughed so much in a long time and the atmosphere is the night's saviour.
It's the final night in and around Preston, and the turn of confident cook, company director Anthony Smith. He's hoping his mix off finger-licking food and fine dining will bag him the £1000 prize. Will his night of celebrity comparisons, ludicrous licks and gamey games be enough to win him the prize?
This new competition from the Nottingham/Derby area kicks off at American Hali's house where she's hoping to impress her guests with a travel inspired menu. What will they think of her unusual dessert combination or the starter of Moroccan chicken cigars? With a very gregarious gang the food plays second fiddle to a fun night of impressions, dance moves and kitchen chaos, but will our American mum manage to scoop the ú1000 prize?
This episode from the Nottingham and Derby area is hosted by 28-year-old car salesman Alistair. He's hoping to step the competition up a gear and speed away with the ú1000 prize. But after narrowly avoiding an argument last night with Lesley, the veteran of the group, he's treading on thin ice. Joining them are loud-mouthed Kim, funeral director, customer services manager Adam, and sumo-wrestling enthusiast Hali. Add to the mixing pot a bizarre and risquÚ menu, consisting of chilli soup and prunes, and the evening is set for a huge culinary explosion.
In Nottingham, fun-loving funeral arranger Kim is going all out to win by hosting an evening packed with games galore and a mixed bag menu. Elder stateswoman of the group, 57-year-old Lesley, is again the butt of car salesman Alistair's geriatric jibes and takes great delight in watching him put on the spot during a 'dance-off'. American, Hali, looks on - sometimes speechless - as the fun and games unfold. With a night full of flowing competitive juices, pensioner put-downs and dodgy dance moves, will 'must win' Kim bag the grand?
In this competition from the Nottingham and Derby area, it's 34-year-old customer relations associate and part-time drag queen Adam to host. He is hoping his theatrical night of flamboyance will win him the ú1000 cash prize. But will he be able to up the ante and get his guests begging for an encore? Will Alastair and Lesley ever kiss and make up? Will Adam outdo Kim? And what will his guests think of his secret hobby as a 'UFOologist'?
It's the final night of the competition and 57-year-old Lesley is counting on a night of glamour and glitz - plus some good home-cooked food - to win her the prize. But before any food is even dished up, the guests make a surprising discovery about the host. Lesley's main course doesn't exactly go according to plan, and with an evening full of shocks, tears, tiaras, undercooked food and a glitzy awards ceremony, will Lesley's night make enough of an impression to bag her the ú1000 prize?
The new series continues. In Swansea, performing arts director Anthony plans a theatre-themed menu for his guests, Ross, Tula, Kola and Julie. But straight-talking Tula tries to steal the show with a candid revelation and Julie brings the house down with some frisky fun at Kola's expense. Anthony's plans go awry in the kitchen, but will he earn rave reviews or rotten tomatoes?
In Swansea, salesman Ross plans a night of culinary sophistication to wow his guests, who he thinks lack class. But will his plan to cook everything to his taste, including a very rare beef Wellington, backfire? Ross's guests make some unexpected discoveries while he's cooking, which leave their host with plenty of explaining to do, and leave Kola with some memories that will haunt him for a long time! By the end of the night, there's tension between Ross and Kola, but the mood is lightened when Julie gets the President of America's name completely wrong. It's an eventful evening, but will Ross's guests give him the points he thinks he's earned?
Social carer Kola plans to bring some high-class hip-hop swagger to the contest in Swansea. He rolls out a red carpet welcome for his guests and hopes that his Nigerian menu will educate and impress them, and that he'll do his mum's favourite recipes justice. There are surprises in store when Kola reveals how he earns a living, there's a performance from Swansea's newest hip-hop super group, there are tears and tantrums, and there's one of the most peculiar desserts ever seen on Come Dine with Me.
Triathlete Tula brings a taste of the Costa Brava to Swansea, with a Spanish themed menu and dress code. Following the previous night's dispute between Ross and Julie, Tula hopes that a combination of charm and chorizo can help her avoid a punch up over the paella.
Social worker Julie plans a chilled out slumber party for the final night of the week in Swansea. Julie cooks a homely menu, but struggles with the pronunciation as well as the preparation of some of her ingredients, which doesn't surprise Anthony. Everyone's expecting more arguments from Ross, but he arrives wearing a smile with his pyjamas. Will he still be smiling when Kola and Julie share their opinions of him during the main course? Ross baffles the group when he tells them what his dream superpower would be, and they're even more surprised when Julie reveals that, if she could take just one thing to a desert island, she'd take Ross... but why!? And at the end of another eventful evening, who will scoop the ú1000 prize?
Dinner lady and dog walker Shan hosts the first night of the contest in Leicester, preparing an evening of traditional Indian recipes and baking her own naan breads.
Builder Andy hosts the second night in Leicester, but two fellow diners fall victim to a fit of giggles, and another demands more salt.
Third to host in Leicester is 43-year-old home executive Han, who plans to treat her guests like royalty and show them a taste of her South African homeland.
A night of authentic Punjabi dishes.
