Come Dine With Me Is Looking For Contestants

Channel 4

Come Dine With Me? More like Come Dine With Them! Applications for the show are now open.

Think you’ve got the chops to make chops on national TV for random guests? You’re in luck.

Shiver Productions, the brains behind the Channel 4 smash, are on the hunt for contestants for the new series – in particular, Mancunians.

The call out reads:

Think you can whip up a food frenzy and host a dinner party like no other? Think you’ve got what it takes to walk away with a £1000? If so, you could soon be part of the nation’s most favourite teatime show.

Channel 4

You’ve got to be 18 or over and not be working or have trained as a professional chef, which counts me out as a 14-year-old with much experience in various Michelin-starred restaurants.

Shooting will take place between April 16 and 20 and to apply, email [email protected] or call 0207 157 4523 with your name, age, contact details and postcode.

There’s another daytime staple on the prowl for new talent, ITV‘s The Chase.


If you want to apply, as per their website it states:

As a contestant on the show you must answer general knowledge questions and play your tactics right in order to get yourself into the Final Chase, where you could win a cash pot worth thousands of pounds.

However, standing in your way is the common enemy, The Chaser, hunting you down every step of the way.

How will you fare against our famous five, can you beat them and go home with an equal share of the money or will the Chasers reign supreme?


As for the eligibility criteria:

You must be a legal resident of and currently live in the UK, Channel Islands or the Isle of Man.

You are not nor have previously been employed by us, the Broadcaster or any of the ITV group of companies during the past 10 (ten) years.

You are not a partner or relative of an employee of us, the Broadcaster or any of the ITV group of companies.

Just think of the pros: money, fame, power, meeting Bradley Walsh.

The cons? You might look a bit silly if beaten by The Beast or The Destroyer on national television and probably won’t do so well in the banter department when sinking some shandies with friends at your local around the time of airing but, hey, it’ll pass.

If anything, it’s something for the Tinder bio.
