A HIT Channel 4 show will feature amateur cooks and dinner hosts from York next week.

Come Dine With Me follows four incompatible strangers as they cook a three course meal for each other in their own home.

The show will be broadcast at 5pm on Tuesday and see contestants from York and the surrounding area try to out do one another before they rate the night out of ten, with the winner taking home a £1,000 jackpot.

One of those competing for the top prize is Craig Wilby, of Willow Waters Fishery, in Pocklington.

The 42-year-old used his own produce on the show as he cooked his meal during filming for fellow guests Ollie, Nicola and Svenja.

Mr Wilby dished up a bruschetta starter with salsa and Aylesbury duck eggs, a fish pie main course and chocolate ganache dessert.

He said: "I have always liked cooking and wanted to do this to try and win the £1,000 for charity."

Come Dine With Me was first broadcast in the UK in 2005 and is narrated by comedian Dave Lamb.

It has racked up more than 1,300 episodes over 30 seasons and has been adapted by 35 countries.

The show gained national attention only last week when one competitor reacted badly to losing and launched a tirade of abuse against the winner.

Salesman Peter Marsh lost his temper and hurled insults at his dinner guest Jane, sparking a social media frenzy as he demonstrated how to be a bad loser and was branded "the rudest contestant ever."

Mr Marsh told his guest she had ruined his night to get the money, and he told her to spend her winnings on "getting some lessons in grace and decorum."

The show has been set in  York on previous occasions, with memorable episodes including when ghost-tour guide Trevor Rooney hosted a dinner party in the Banana Warehouse and when a pet snake left an unsavoury deposit on a dining table.
