Come Dine With Me comes to the UAE

The 45-episode OSN original Yalla Neta’asha casting is now open to all residents

Come Dine With Me comes to the UAE

If you're a fan of reality show Come Dine With Me, you're in luck as the Middle East is now getting a version of the popular British TV programme.

OSN has signed a deal with ITV to bring Come Dine With Me to the Middle East as an original production, with the series being filmed in the UAE.

The Middle East version of the hugely popular reality TV show will follow the same format as the UK, where every week a different group of four strangers take turns to each host a dinner party in their home, with the other guests rating the evening out of ten.

Each host will cook a starter dish, a main course and a dessert, followed by a grading session by the three guests on their hosting skills and overall experience. One of the best parts, we say.

With 45 episodes to come, the show will run weekly from Sunday to Thursday with a new group of contestants every week.

Fancy being a dinner party host? A casting call for residents to apply for a chance to take part in the reality TV show is currently open, with UAE residents between the age of 23-45 invited to apply online by emailing itvsme-casting@itv.com with their name, age and address.

“OSN is thrilled about the upcoming OSN Original, Come Dine with Me, which will be the first an original production of the extremely popular show comes to our region. This production further cements our commitment to providing curated content and bringing the best in entertainment to our audiences in the Middle East,” said Interim Chief Content Officer at OSN Rolla Karam.

“We believe that Come Dine with Me will be as huge a success in the Middle East as it is in the United Kingdom and are very excited for what’s to come in the pipeline in terms of original productions.”

OSN has also revealed a huge line up of movies coming out this July, including a Marvel pop-up channel. Check it out right here.
