Dear BBC, I have some questions and comments regarding "Come dine with me" on your BBC Lifestyle. How many episodes do you air every week? Too many, in my opinion. And now there are several varieties, super size, SA and the original which run endlessly...They are not about food at all anymore, but like most docusoaps just showcase the participants unpleasantness and bad manners. Not fun family entertainment. Can you not replace some of the airing time with more real food programs? My family miss BBC Food.
Thank you for your message to BBC Worldwide Channels in the Nordic region.
