S18-E1 Come Dine with Me: Celebrity Special

Catch Up


Sssh! Listen… hear that? That’s the sound of Channel 4 scraping the bottom of the celebrity barrel. Eighties throwback David Van Day is just as egotistical as he was on I’m a Celebrity in 2008, making dreadful puns, singing his hits and looking at himself in the mirror.

But it’s ex-Hollyoaks actor Paul Danan who’s the most charmless guest, ogling the chest of glamour model Imogen Thomas, making obscene remarks and announcing he doesn’t eat pork (before serving prosciutto on his night). “He’s got the IQ of a sprout!” shrieks Shameless’s Tina Malone who, along with Thomas, actually seems quite nice and downright sane.


Shameless star Tina Malone, model Imogen Thomas, former Hollyoaks actor Paul Danan and David Van Day of 1980s pop band Dollar compete for their chosen charities, taking turns hosting evenings featuring a three-meat roast and singing, as well as a James Bond-themed night.
