Channel 4 orders a new Come Dine With Me spinoff featuring professional chefs.

Channel 4 has ordered a new spinoff of Come Dine With Me featuring professional chefs.

The long-running format typically sees five strangers take turns in hosting a three-course meal for the group, with each scoring their efforts out of 10 to determine an overall winner.

In Come Dine With Me: The Professionals, trained chefs will host their fellow professionals in a bid to prove that they are the top independent restaurant in their area.

Two people will represent each restaurant, with three restaurants competing per episode.

Show producer Tim Carter said: "For 15 glorious years, we've been ­celebrating the culinary creations and epic fails that pour forth from the nation's home kitchens.

"Now, as they recover from the battering of the last couple of years, Come Dine With Me cheers on Britain's restaurants with its customary love note to gastronomic endeavour."

The new show will again be voiced by Dave Lamb and air on Channel 4 later this year.
