East Lancashire Come Dine With Me tonight

Lancashire Telegraph: COME DINE: Carol Stinton COME DINE: Carol Stinton

AN East Lancashire special of hit TV show Come Dine With Me will be served up tonight.

Four would-be cooks from Darwen, Oswaldtwistle, Kelbrook and Padiham, pitted their menus against one another for the chance to win £1,000.

While three of the contestants said they enjoyed the experience and were keen to have reunions, Darwen plumber Nick Holt said he had 'the worst week of his life'.

The 41-year-old BNP member, who once stood against Jack Straw in the 2005 general election, said he would 'rather go to Afghanistan' than repeat his experience on the show.

He said: “I think they picked me for my intolerance of the other people on the show. It was the worst week of my life.

“The producers told me they think it was the best one they’ve ever filmed.

"I think I’ll probably come across as very cranky, but it was just because of the bad company.”

Other contestants include Padiham Mayoress Carol Stinton, 68, Jonathan Kemp, 39, a hairdresser from Oswaldtwistle, and Sue Hartley, 47, a teacher at Nelson and Colne College, who used to read tarot cards for a living.

Avid fan Carol said: “I cooked the food I was familiar with, but it didn’t all go quite to plan.

"The lights are so bright, and they don’t let you use your fans or have doors open, so I was wet through and my Swiss roll collapsed."

She added: “Even though it was a tiring week it was enjoyable and it was nice to try other people’s food.”

Jonny said his menu went to plan and he had a 'brilliant week', even though he spent more than the £1,000 possible prize money cleaning and redecorating his house and buying new clothes.

Sue, who teaches Child, Health and Social Care, said 'everything went to pot' on filming day.

She said: “It was just pathetic. My Caesar sauce curdled twice, I burnt all my vegetables and my moussaka parcels were heavy and stodgy."

The participants attend dinner parties at each other's homes and award points for each night.

The show will air at 8pm tonight on Channel 4.

At least Mr Holt is an equal opportunities bigot. I guess he thinks Mayoresses, hairdressers and teachers need to be sent back to Mayoressia. hairdresseristan and teacherland to leave the country safe for BNP members. Mrs Stinton, Mr Kemp and Mrs Hartley have clearly made no attempt to integrate into British (National Party) society.

I used to like this programme to, but it has gone the way of many other 'reality' progs. It is has been dumbed down. Many of the situations are fixed, the contestants are now chosen for how ridiculous they are, and all in all what was once a great prog has been ruined.

I feel ashamed that she's the mayoress of Padiham. What an absolute let down. Not fit to represent the town, be a school governor, or hold any position for that matter.

Obviously no-one with half an ounce of sense would apply. It was once remotely credible that a few would take it seriously in the earlier series but now they just want to find the failed jeremy kyle applicants and tell them to make chicken nuggets, get pished and pass them off as worthy.

I'm embarassed and I wasn't even in it!

I didn't actually see the programme myself (except for the snippet on Utube) but I just happened to phone my relatives while the programme was being shown. They said they were enjoying the banter between the contestants and thought the show quite entertaining.

Normally have to rely on the voice over man for the jokes - not last night.
It has to be the most I've laughed at a TV program in ages. In fact it was so funny and cringeworthy at the same time , I watched it again on 4+1.
First time a member of the BNP has been on TV and been outshone by other idiots - "Jonny sunbed" and "carol" take a bow.

Carole Stinton should be removed from any position she holds she was a disgrace.Her manners typified the reasons why Padiham is the s**t heap it is,if this pig is the towns ambassador god help us.I imagine that the town council will allow her to continue as Mayoress to show how bloody useless they are. I have a business in Padiham and am blazing how this pig of a woman portrayed the town and Lancashire.She is a customer of mine or rather was I do not allow dogs in my shop, but they perhaps have better manners.A golden chance to show whats good about the town destroyed by her.
