Over the last 17 years there has been a whopping 45 series of the cult show.
And it’s popularity is down to just one man.
Dave Lamb provides the show’s hysterical narration.
Cutting, witty and savage as anything, Dave roasts the diners who are all just hoping to win a cash prize of £1,000.
He also narrates Come Dine with Me Ireland and Come Dine with Me South Africa.
And as well as all that he’s also a successful comedian.

And not just any soap – but ITV’s big budget 2008 project Echo Beach and sister show Moving Wallpaper.
Dave starred in Moving Wallpaper as Carl Morris.
He played a put upon writer in the show which was a fictional look at the behind the scenes goings on at soap opera Echo Beach.

Ben Miller co-starred as Echo Beach executive producer Jonathan Pope.
He played Susan’s ex Daniel Marrack who returned to the town of Polnarren to run a beach cafe with his children.
It was the brainchild of EastEnders writer Tony Jordan.
Moving Wallpaper lasted two seasons, while Echo Beach was cancelled after just one.
