Production of the Channel 4 cookery programme, where contestants compete to throw the best dinner party, had been paused during the pandemic.

The show’s producers are calling for members of the public from Edinburgh to apply – all you have to do is email [email protected] with your details and reveal why you would like to appear on the show.

Episodes will initially be filmed in a “Covid-secure venue” rather than contestants’ own homes, according to a statement.

As well as Edinburgh, people from Glasgow, Basingstoke, Belfast, Birmingham, Brighton and Hove, Bristol, Bath, Cardiff, Essex, Gloucester, Cheltenham, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newport, Oxford, south London, Sunderland, Swansea and Yorkshire are being encouraged to apply.

The closing date for entries is September 10.
