I’m Going to be on TV!



Just a quick note letting you all know that I’m going to be on Come Dine With Me tomorrow (1st September) at 5pm UK time. I’m a giddy/nervous/excited wreck and it’s a shame only United Kingdom residents can view it!

Come Dine With Me is a cooking competition. 4 or 5 hosts take it in turn to host a dinner party which is all filmed (brutality and all) and after scoring one person wins £1,000!

If you do decide to watch it, I hope you enjoy it – please no judging. 

I must be mad!

I will receive a DVD copy of the show so if it’s not too embarrassing, I may upload it to my YouTube channel!

      1. Karen Rees says:

        I LOVED IT!!!!! Claire you were amazing and just as I imagined, you done sooooooo well <3 Even my hubby Steve & our little girl Emma were cheering you on… I'm sure the neighbours thought we'd lost the plot when the results were annouced hehe XXXX

        1. Hahaha so glad you liked it! How embarrassing! I was totally the bimbo. Xxxxxx

          1. Karen Rees says:

            You were BRILL!!!!!! Just how I would picture you – when you said ‘I just want something deep fried in my mouth’ I almost choked on my sweet potato!!! lol lol Seemed like that Canadian lady was really taken by the young fella… I thought a romance was going to blossom from that lol XXXX

          2. Haha thank you lovely! So glad that’s over with. I was so nervous when I was watching it, thinking – a lot of people are going to see this! I definitely came across as a food loving bimbo! Donna and Chester were very close at the party yesterday too haha. I actually think they like each other haha! Xxxxx

          3. Karen Rees says:

            Awwwh you’re just super sweet – not a bimbo, just really bubbly and full of fun! Honestly you had us all in stitches – even your expressions said it all. The moo off was the most bizarre thing I’d ever encountered!! Your face was PRICELESS!!! lol
            Oohhh hmm, I think there may be a bit of flirting in the midst… maybe she could help tidy up that flat of his! Tut tut 😀 XXXX

          4. haha thank you! Everyone was in stitches here – it’s harder when you’re watching yourself haha! Mum found it hilarious when Mike arrived and complimented the house and then when I said thank you the narrator piped up with “its her mum and dads!”. Had so much filming it. You know what the house looks like outside of my filming spot now! Xxxx

          5. Karen Rees says:

            Your house is gorgeous Claire – credit to your parents it’s a stunning home, I have to say it was really strange seeing you in your own environment apart from your YouTube backdrop!! 😀 hehe

          6. Bless you! I’ve told my mum you said that she said “awww really?! Thank you!” haha. I always find it strange how we often only see youtubers in one spot! Xxxx

          7. Karen Rees says:

            Yes, I was thinking that too – it’s like we can’t imagine a reality beyond their backdrop and when we do finally see it, it’s such a shock to the system lol! Yes, very gorgeous home… the Elsleys clearly have great taste and a talent for wining and dining in it too 😉 hehe XXX

          8. Aww thanks! 🙂 Haha not sure about the dining – my food really wasn’t great! Xxxxx

          9. Karen Rees says:

            It won £1000!!!!!!!!! It was amazing 🙂 You’re a talented gal… enough of that nonsense!! Your dessert sounded fun though, would go down well here in Ireland lol XXX

          10. Haha! I still can’t believe it. I’m sure it would! Big drinkers over there haha. I love Ireland! Xxxxx

          11. Karen Rees says:
