WEST Dorset’s turn on cooking show Come Dine With Me has been pushed back due to the Paralympics.

Weymouth’s Ed Hintze, Melissa Denton and Tristan G Murless were due to appear on the programme from Monday but their dinner parties will now be aired from the week beginning September 10.

Producers said this was due to extra Paralympics programmes in the Channel 4 schedule.

The town’s contestants will be seen competing for the £1,000 cash prize alongside Bournemouth DJ Dave Taylor and Christine Duell from the New Forest.

Mr Hintze, an Elton John impersonator, will be first of the five contestants to host.

The Party Shop in Abbotsbury Road will also feature on the show.
