A Brexit special of Come Dine With Me has been confirmed with the show due to be broadcast on Christmas Day. 

According to sources at Channel 4, the episode was thrown into chaos after some of the contestants didn’t submit a menu to producers until the very last moment.

One insider said: ‘A provisional menu for the first night was almost agreed until a phone call came in and put a stop to it.’

’I couldn’t hear what was being said – I only caught something about dinosaurs and the gays.’

‘Some of the contestants refused to begin their appetisers until outstanding issues with the bread basket had been dealt with, and a producer had to intervene when one of them asked if they could just have dessert and then score that out of ten.’
