BLACKPOOL chefs are cooking up a storm this week as the resort once again appears on hit show Come Dine With Me.
The first programme from the five-night dinner party challenge was shown on Monday and sparks have already begun to fly between contestants.
Blackpool man Ross Chapman kicked off the week serving up traditional fish and chips.
On Tuesday mum of two Lindsay Pulford, hoped to impress with her Caribbean themed night and last night history student Chris Mosey served up “scouse” tapas.
Tonight cleaner Louise Dee will be changing the mood with an “old skool rave” to follow her meal.
Lorraine Rimmer, 50, a medical photographer with Blackpool Victoria Hospital will finish off the week also in Spanish style.
Some fiery rows are set to see ratings soaring according to Lorraine, 50, from West Park Drive. She said: “We had an absolute ball on Come Dine With Me.
“Money couldn’t buy the experience we had, we were having so much fun the producers had to tell us to calm down at one point.
“I was thrilled when I found out I had been picked to appear, more than 400 people auditioned for the show.
“I have kept in touch with a couple of the people but am so glad I took part.”
As part of the Channel 4 programme all five cooks each put on a three-course dinner party and secretly mark each other’s efforts.
The series has attracted a cult following and is characterised by the caustic comments of catty narrator Dave Lamb.
At the end of the week the chef with the highest points is crowned the winner.
Come Dine with me is shown on Channel 4 at 5pm
