Every week five strangers, who love to entertain, take it in turns to throw a dinner party in their own personal style. But this is no ordinary supper - after each dinner, the guests secretly score the host a mark out of ten. The food and the atmosphere are taken into account when scoring and at the end of the week the top-scoring host wins £1000.
All the contestants think they know exactly what makes the perfect dinner party, but not everyone likes Stilton ice cream, cross dressing waiters and performing Yorkshire terriers.
Filmed all over the UK, hosts from all walks of life take the Come Dine With Me challenge – providing astonishing and hilarious insights into their homes and their dinner party secrets.
