A self -confessed TV games show addict will be appearing on Come Dine With Me. Hairdresser Jonathan Kemp, 39, has appeared on several TV shows over the years.
Jonathan, of Mayfield Gardens, Oswaldtwistle, was on BBC show Total Wipeout a year ago so when the chance to take part in Channel 4’s hit show came to fruition, he gobbled it right up. He has also appeared on Family Fortunes, Blankety Blank and The Other Half. The programme sees competitors host a dinner party and rate each other for the chance to win £1,000.
Camera crews spent 18 hours recording footage at the Kemp’s home.
Jonathan, who owns Arena hair salon on Union Road, Oswaldtwistle, said: "It was a really long day when it was my turn to host because the house had to be just right before they got there and then you have to cook and host a dinner and everything has to be ready for the camera. It was a lot of work but worth it."
Jonathan said it was by far his favourite television experience. He added: "I got absolutely leathered. You get to eat and drink for free at someone else's house each night which was great. We all had a laugh and I got to meet people from all over East Lancashire.
"My sons, Joss, 18, and Jay, 11, both love it when I am on TV and so do my customers."
Come Dine With Me airs on Channel 4 at 8pm on Sunday, January 23.
