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.
The four royalists battling it out for the Street Party crown are vintage loving business development manager Samantha Porter, 39, first class air stewardess Claudie Howard, 44, flamboyant entrepreneur Vincent Osborne, 58, and retired broker Johnnie Hunter, 57. The Royal Wedding Street Parties include a traditional East End knees up with a 1940s theme, a glamorous wedding breakfast/ garden party, a Caribbean-flavoured Martinique mock wedding party and a traditional boozy village party on the village green with a hog roast. Which of the party organisers will have done enough to be crowned dinner party King or Queen and walk away with the £3000 prize?
