A GROUP of five food lovers from Basingstoke made a lasting bond when they competed in the 2010 series of Come Dine With Me.

And now, the producers of the popular Channel 4 programme are looking for more contestants from the town to take part in the new series.

The reality show sees strangers take it in turns to host the perfect dinner party for each other for the chance of winning £1,000 cash prize.

Channel 4 films each episode in a different location and is hoping to find people from Basingstoke to take part from June 2 to 6. For more information email or call 0871 244 4142.
