If you have what it takes to host the perfect dinner party you could be just what Channel 4 show Come Dine With Me is looking for.

The culinary television programme has attracted a huge following of food fanatics and series producers are now looking for south east London residents to take part in the new series.

Filmed over five days, the show follows the dining highs and lows of each contestant as they take it in turns to host the perfect dinner party. The participants, who are all complete strangers, give each evening a score out of 10 and at the end of the week, the most impressive host will walk away with the £1,000 prize.

To take part you must be aged 18 or older and live in or around the south east London area.

So, to put you cookery skills to the test, call 0871 244 4142 or email cdwm@itv.com. Calls cost 10 pence per minute from a BT landline, mobile and other network rates may be higher.
