Cooks sought for top TV show

COOKS in the borough who think they can impress a group of strangers with their culinary skills are being sought for TV.

Over four days, four strangers from all walks of life, take turns in hosting the perfect dinner party for each other and at the end of the week the most impressive host wins a £1,000 cash prize.
