Come Dine with Me UK 12
BBC Lifestyle (DStv 174)
Five strangers come together to wine, dine and entertain each other in the hopes of taking home the big cash prize at the end of the week.
In the Season 12 premiere: In north Surrey the first host, 39-year-old planning enforcement officer Becky, is joined by Petrina, Rob, Shoba and Giovanni.
Do her crispy croutons and lamb shank stew impress?
On the second night, Shoba is serving an Indian menu. The guests are less than impressed with the frozen fish curry; can belly dancing, Bollywood-style, save the day?
31-year-old drum tutor Rob is hoping his Thai-tastic menu will impress his guests and snare him the prize, as well as impressing the object of his affections, Petrina.
49-year-old Petrina hopes her experience entertaining on cruise ships gives her the edge. Or will it be her dessert: 'Petrina's Salted Caramel Chocolate Crunch Surprise'?
The final night in north Surrey is hosted by Giovanni, who wants to fly the flag for Sicily with family-inspired recipes. But a tagliatelle tragedy leaves him with Parmesan on his face.
