Another Vegan on Come Dine With Me

I spotted this article too late - the show aired last night (Thursday), but I found out that it will be repeated on Saturday.

The Channel 4 TV show Come Dine With Me, the one that our Niki starred on has changed format and is no longer a half hour programme on for five days. It’s been slimmed (budget cuts ?) down to a weekly one hour episode.

Good too see that it’s still going though and great to see Tony Wardle, one of the Viva! co-founders making an appearance. This is the 2nd vegan to be on the show. Let’s hope that they feature more vegetarians and vegans in the future.

“It was a very boozy experience!” he said. “I’d never seen the programme before and I wouldn’t dream of doing it normally, but I saw it as an opportunity to talk about certain issues.

When you’re a vegan and you meet people, you’re never sure how they’re going to react and whether you’re going to have a battle on your hands….
