Come Dine With Me: falling into its inescapable trap

Unrivalled in its ability to showcase the worst of people, Channel 4's Come Dine With Me sucks viewers into an ineludible abyss...

Dinner parties are rubbish, they're just dinner with added pressure. Why add pressure to dinner? It’s probably the best meal of the day. Come Dine With Me dinner parties on the other hand, are amazing. Intrigue! Underhand tactics! People riffling through strangers’ bedroom drawers! They've got it all.

For those who don’t know, Channel 4's Come Dine With Me entails people from the same area each putting on a dinner party on consecutive nights in the hope of winning £1000. They all score each other out of ten and with any luck, someone kicks off.

There is something wonderful about watching a group of people who have been thrust together in such an unusual situation – who will make the most disastrous dish? »

Danger Mouse: revamped show renewed for second series

Cbbc has ordered another pile of Danger Mouse episodes, with Alexander Armstrong and Kevin Eldon set to return...

Cbbc’s Danger Mouse revamp has been renewed for a second series. You’d expect the show’s impressive voice cast – including Alexander Armstrong, Kevin Eldon, Dave Lamb, Stephen Fry and Lena Headey – to assemble once again.

Alexander Armstrong is definitely coming back, and he had this to say about the renewal:

“I have had enormous fun playing Danger Mouse, whose style, bravery and wit I greatly admire. I am almost unbearably excited about what new magnificent missions and terrifying situations the writing team will come up with for Danger Mouse and Penfold in series two!”

Penfold himself, Mr Kevin Eldon, added this: 

“It’s a funny old world. You get no series of Danger Mouse for 23 years and then two come along at once. All right, there’s been 18 months between them, »

Come Dine With Me: Champion Of Champions – easy on the Zinfandel

1 February 2016 4:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Narrator Dave Lamb comes out of the voiceover booth to judge a show that’s less about getting guests drunk and more about, you know, cooking

Earlier this month, a piece of history was made. For the first time in its 11-year run, Come Dine With Me featured a competitor who, cracking under the strain, chucked his guests out of his home after finding he’d lost the competition. It’s a glorious achievement for Peter from Milton Keynes, who will also be forever remembered for being part of the finest piece of daytime television ever broadcast, a show that condenses competitive entitlement and aspirational anxiety into a 30-minute comedy of manners which delights all senses (at 3 o’clock in the afternoon, anyway). But despite Peter’s heroic action – striking back for all the other losers who grin and bear it as a victor chucks a salver full of £20 notes »
