Guilty Pleasure: Come Dine With Me
We all have our guilty pleasures, things that are so bad that they are good. Whether that may be a shopping spree on payday, having a secret crush on Philip Schofield (á la Peaches Geldof) or listening to Take That circa 1990s. I have to confess that my current guilty pleasure is the television programme ‘Come Dine With Me’. I love everything about it; the narrator with his awful jokes, the succession of badly cooked food and the arguments between the dinner party guests, it has got me hooked. The celebrity episodes often send me into frenzy. It’s car crash television at its best.
