Mr Voisey, from Cawston, near Reepham, cooked a Thai-inspired meal in his bid to win £1,000.

The show, which pulls in more than a million viewers per episode, sees five strangers take turns to host a dinner party. The contestants then rate one another's performances.

And Mr Voisey, 49, said he met some great people on the show, which had been filmed across Norfolk in October.

The first episode will be aired tonight at 5pm, with the finale on Friday.

While the show is notorious for tears and tantrums, Mr Voisey said his group had remained friends.
