It was a first for Come Dine With Me last week when a contestant disappeared from the show with barely an explanation.
Music producer Rory Nicoll appeared on two episodes of the teatime favourite.
He was then taken off the programme after hosting dinner as part of central Scotland week.
While holding the meal at his place, he got into a bit of a strange argument with another contestant over which Take That singer was more talented… Robbie Williams or Gary Barlow.
When the show aired the following evening, the scoreboard appeared on screen with a HUGE red cross was over to 40-year-old’s face.
Narrator Dave Lamb told viewers that Rory had been removed after “incidents that happened away from the dinner party”.
And that was it. No details.
Viewers were beside themselves and desperate to know what Rory had done to get himself kicked off… one even submitting a Freedom of Information request to Channel 4.
One viewer hilariously tweeted:
Another added: “Rory got booted off Come Dine With Me tonight, what’s that all about?!”
And one other joked: “Come Dine With Me in Central Scotland – they’ve removed Rory. I reckon it’s due to his appalling taste in music.”
Now, finally, we can’t put all you CDWM fans out of your misery – sort of.
Jennifer, who hosted the first night’s dinner, has told Dunfermline Press:
“I loved meeting the others, and me and my husband are going along to one of their 40th birthdays. There was a bit of a drama, though, and a first on the show.
“On the first night, everybody came to mine, and on the second night the host had a bit of an argument with the other gentleman… the producer said if the host didn’t apologise, he would get kicked off the show.”
So, it looks as though Rory’s stubbornness in backing down over an argument and refusal to apologise is to blame.
Who knew a debate over Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow supremacy could invoke such rage…
