    Does anyone else like this?

    Where a group of strangers meet and take it in turn to host dinner parties, and then give eachother scores? It can be fabulously bitchy and petty :D

    I suppose it's on a little bit too early for most of you, but has anyone seen it?

    Its back for a new series, and as far as those C4 evening progs go, Its really entertaining!

    This week its a celeb special, with Mica Paris and Ulrika Johnson :D

    Have you ever taken a photo before, Ray?
    It's on during the day isn't it? I quite liked it, it's interesting seeing how much effort different people put in, how pretentious some get, and how vicious some can be...

    I heard rumours challenge anneka is coming back.

    Bad news is, it's on ITV, so only Seb Flyte will watch it.

    I do like this programme, though I only ever catch the last ten minutes or so.

    Loved her picking the food up off the floor...'DON'T TELL AGGIE!'

    Toby Young really is a grade 'A' CUNT however. Hope his dinner party is a disaster.

    she hosts something on BBC1 or 2 on a sunday too

    I LOVE 'Come Dine With Me' - have missed most of this celeb week, but loved the last one with Ulrika and Mica Paris.

    Come Dine With Me is great television though, that and 'coach trip' are really good day time progs!

    I don't understand why people don't just give everyone else 0 - then they're guaranteed to win?!" Tonight the bloke got 39 out of 40...if someone had been clever enough to give him a 2, he wouldn't be in the lead...

    Someone did do that, but it was obvious what she was doing, so they forced her to redo her points. She lost in the end :(

    I can't argue with that! 5 middle class IDIOTS all holding dinner parties for each other.

    I thought I was the ONLY ONE.

    Oh and LIKE THEY NEED the PRIZE MONEY

    Just having a Wiki of it I notice that a series 2 contestant, a certain Bill Buckley "provided both the words and music for Su Pollard’s number two hit single, Starting Together"

    It also says it's a Channel 4 show, but I've only seen it early Sunday evening...

    It used to run 5 days a week in the 5pm slot, one house a day

    It was even better then, a bit like CDWM EXTENDED

    My favourite ever contestant was an elderly homosexual who slept in his dead Mothers bed or something, and I think he also wore her clothes. He also only had one eye. Quite a character!

    I liked it the other week, when that fat black American bird FUCKED EVERYTHING UP and so provided the starters as SAMPLERS ON SPOONS, and they all seemed to think it was some NEW TRENDY FASHIONABLE IDEA

    I love the OTT reactions, or at least the way it's edited to make it appear that way, that they have over things like TAKING THEIR SHOES OFF

    The wine expert? FAT?

    And didn't some fishmonger bloke spend £100 on a bottle of wine to impress him and it turned out to be PISH!

    I remember a woman who rated everyone really low :D She got stopped, but before then i always thought why didn't more people do that.

    I do love it though :disco:

    He was also a Channel 5 continuity announcer and often introduced the late night repeats of Prisoner. He was hilarious!

    I remember her! Especially when the evening had been been undeniably good, she gave about a four as her highest score. I remember the producers took her into one of the other rooms and told her that she basically had to give up the prize money if she won/remark everyone properly.

    I used to like it when it was five times a week though. It seems a bit like they're rushing each one with the one longer programme.

    Am I right in thinking they did a celebrity one?
