If you’re as obsessed with Channel 4’s Come Dine With Me as we at Delish UK are, the news that there’s going to be a new format will fill your heart with joy.
It’s just been announced that there’s going to be a new version of Come Dine With Me that will pit professional chefs and their restaurants against each other. Unsurprisingly, it’s called Come Dine With Me: The Professionals.
Simple yet effective.
The new series, which gives a new twist to the show that’s been on our TV screens for 17 years, will see teams of professional chefs and restauranteurs compete “in a bid to be crowned the best independent restaurant in their town, county or city,” according to Channel 4.
Channel 4’s Head of Daytime and Features, Jo Street, said of the series: “Come Dine With Me continues to be one of Channel 4’s best loved programmes with many memorable dinners served all over the UK in over 2,000 episodes.
“CDWM: The Professionals promises to really raise the stakes and we’re delighted to dish up this new extension on Channel 4 in 2022 to complement existing favourites Come Dine With Me and Couples Come Dine With Me.”
And, yes, Come Dine With Me’s iconic narrator, Dave Lamb, will still be the one taking the mickey out of everyone. Phew.
The series will consist of 20 episodes, but when it will air is still not known.
