The dating show with a culinary theme, Celebrity Dinner Date, returns with a brand new run of shows on ITVBe on Wednesday 1 February at 8.00pm, kicking off with a celebrity special featuring former Apprentice candidate and Celebrity Big Brother winner James Hill.
The popular entertainment series began back in 2010 on ITV, returning in its new home on ITVBe as part of the channel’s launch in 2014, where it has since cemented its place as one of the top rated programmes.
Alongside dozens of dates for ordinary folk, recent celebrity specials have featured the likes of ex-Emmerdale star Gemma Oaten and various stars of Made in Chelsea, TOWIE and Geordie Shore.
The series features witty narration from former Hollyoaks and Two Pints… actor Natalie Casey, who oversees the dating action with tongue firmly in cheek. In each episode, someone is given the chance to find true love over three meals, each cooked by a blind date in their own home.
After the three dates are done, the dinner dater gets the chance to take their favourite chef and potential future beau to a swanky restaurant, leaving the other two with a night in alone and a ready meal for one. Hunky entrepreneur James is known for his way with the ladies, but will he manage to impress his chosen three as they attempt to cook and bake their way into his heart? When the dates are done and the ladies bid him farewell, which of them will he want to see for seconds?
Celebrity Dinner Date airs on Wednesday 1 Feb 2017 at 8.00pm on ITVBe
