Come Dine With Me is looking for people from Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole

Channel 4’s hit cooking show Come Dine With Me is looking for aspiring chefs to take part in the show. The show organizers are looking for residents of the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole areas to show off their culinary skills and meet other locals.

A brand new series is set to return to our screens soon and the streaming giant will be heading to the BCP area to find potential contestants. The hit program first appeared on UK television screens on January 10, 2005 and has since produced 45 series.

Each day for a week, contestants must take turns hosting a dinner party for a chance to win a cash prize of £1,000. Each dinner is rated out of ten by the other competitors, which takes into account cooking skills, presentation and entertainment. The contestant with the highest score wins.

It seems our county is no stranger to TV appearances as a couple from Wimborne managed to win the grand prize of £1,000. Jackie Phillipson and Richard Blunderfield won in 2015 beating Bournemouth couple Ross Stallion and Hanne Basson.

Today, the series is back to put our residents’ cooking skills to the test. A post on a local Facebook group was well-shared to encourage residents to sign up for a chance to join the show. The post stated that Come Dine With Me “is looking for aspiring chefs from Bournemouth and surrounding areas to apply for our new series. Fancy? Head to this link:
