Come Dine With Me has been offering iconic TV moments for the last 15 years, and now it has another spin-off, as Come Dine With Me: The Professionals is set to start later this year.

Episodes are set to be self-contained and focus on three local eateries as they compete to be crowned the best independent restaurant in their town, county or city.

They're all competing to win a cash prize that will be split among the restaurant staff, as well as the prestigious title.

Each restaurant will be represented by two members of staff, and the pairs will score each restaurant out of 20.

Meals take place during normal service, giving everyone a chance to look at the atmosphere, the food and the service.

The new series will run for 20 episodes, and iconic narrator Dave Lamb will be providing the voiceover.

Channel 4's Jo Street said: "Come Dine With Me continues to be one of Channel 4's best loved programmes with many memorable dinners served all over the UK in over 2,000 episodes.

"CDWM: The Professionals promises to really raise the stakes and we’re delighted to dish up this new extension on Channel 4 in 2022 to complement existing favourites Come Dine With Me and Couples Come Dine With Me."

"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."

Alongside Couples Come Down With Me, the show has also had a number of celebrity specials, as well as a Hollyoaks Does Come Dine With Me in 2020.

Come Dine With Me: The Professionals will begin on Channel 4 and All 4 in 2022.
