Amateur chefs compete against each other by hosting a dinner party for the other contestants. Each competitor then rates the host's performance with the winner winning a £1,000 cash prize. An element of comedy is added to the show through comedian Dave Lamb, who provides a dry and "bitingly sarcastic" narration.
Four glam footballers' other halves are putting down the shopping bags and picking up the utensils, as they battle to win the culinary cup in Come Dine With Me WAGs Special The gloves are off and the heels are on, as the wives and girlfriends prove they're more than just pretty faces. First up is Jude, wife of French striker Djibril Cissé, who puts the other girls to the test by serving up a 'papaya salad'… made from cucumber. Chantelle Tagoe, missus of England striker Emile Heskey, is as keen to show off her shoe collection as her cooking, while the centerpiece of Jessica Lawlor's evening is her decadent décor, including a flotation tank and television built into her bed. Meanwhile, former Page 3 girl, Nicola T, is out to prove her premier league credentials with a night of fairy costumes, magical entertainment and scintillating conversation. "For some reason I always end up talking about willies…" she says.
