Review

CDWM has been running continuously on C4 for years but they’ve given it a twist for this new teatime series by getting couples to host the dinner parties and mark each other’s efforts out of 20 this time. And they’ve picked a cracking pair to kick it off.

Stephen and Ayesha are high-powered Londoners with a kilo of plums in their mouths who like putting on musical soirees, talking about astrophysics and visiting their Italian holiday home. Smug is the word that springs to mind. Surprisingly their down-to-earth guests are too polite to slate Mr and Mrs Posh, but when their pudding hits the kitchen floor you’ll probably snort with glee.

Summary

Three couples from north London and Hertfordshire compete for the cash prize of £1,000 as they take turns to host dinner parties. Dawn and Simon, who have been married for nearly 30 years, hipsters Darren and Sian, and lawyer Ayesha and astrophysicist Stephen battle it out to win the dinner party challenge.
