Here's how to apply for your chance to win £1,000

Let's be honest, you're not a good enough baker to go on Bake Off, and you're too tight to pay for your own meal if you successfully apply for First Dates. Your only chance of getting on a kind-of-popular TV food programme is by going on Come Dine With Me. Looks like today's your lucky day.

Now approaching it's 1000th episode, the show is coming back to Leeds where it's looking for people to host dinner parties over the course of a week.

Each crack team of hosts generally consists of somebody who takes it way too seriously and scores 4 (they generally have the top five buttons of their shirt undone as well), somebody who sabotages their own evening by bringing in their burlesque/acoustic guitar friend for "entertainment", somebody who ruins everybody's night by "speaking their mind", and a student who can't pronounce dauphinoise.

If any of these sound like you, what are you waiting for? Get in touch with to apply.
