A Channel 4 reality series is casting its eye eastward for its new series, as it looks for contestants from the Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft areas.

Come Dine With me, which last broadcast an episode from Norfolk in February 2017, is returning to the region for a new string of episodes.

A casting call for Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft has been issued, looking for eager people to take part in the show - which requires five contestants to host dinner parties and compete to be named host with the most.

Contestants must be available between Monday, April 9 and Friday, April 13, and must be older than 18.
