Have you got what it takes to beat four other budding chefs to win £1,000?

Anyone can apply to take part, provided they are aged 18 or over, have not worked or trained as a professional chef and live in Crookes or the surrounding areas.

The closing date for entries is September 10 this year.

However show makers say they may extend the closing date at their discretion without notice.

They are currently looking for contestants to appear in series 18 and 19 of the show, which first aired on Channel 4 in 2005.

For this series, the producers are shaking up the formula and using a centralised house to host the dinner parties.

Previously, the show has seen each of the five contestants invite their fellow chefs over to their house for a three-course meal.

Following the meal, the other four contestants score that night’s chef out of 10, and the person with the most points at the end of the week wins and is awarded £1,000.
