James Stars In Come Dine With Me!!

Date Published 06 May 2015

A lot of you may have watched the program but do you know someone who was actually in it?

James Gesner, Director of james Gesner Estate Agents applied to go on the show in 2014 and got picked from over 600 applicants to be part of the Come Dine With Me Oxfordshire edition.

Filmed in July last year he took part along with three other contestants, all from Oxfordshire in hosting and evening of food and drinks with a chance to win the £1,000 prize.

James commented ‘A week of late nights, fine food and drinking seemed like a good idea to me!!' But after finishing the program he said he would of rather ran the London Marathon again! Hours and hours of filming certainly took its toll let alone getting home at 2am most nights due to the time taken to get the footage needed to create the program.

The program is on next Thursday at 4pm on channel 4 and you can see how James got on.

Oxford: This episode features an indulgent menu laden with cream, a meal on a narrowboat, a spiritualist host and an unconventional approach to sous-vide cooking.
