They became involved in the show after the production company got in touch following nominations from Disco Kitchen customers.

After an extensive selection process the pair were chosen to take part in the Yorkshire episode alongside two other business duos.

Brian said: "It was a fantastic experience. It was hard work to shoehorn filming a TV schedule and running round the clock but we got it done and thoroughly enjoyed it.

"It was very demanding but we befriended two nice couples who live and breathe what we do.

"We hope to show that there is more to Halifax. There are some fantastic parts to this town."

In Come Dine With Me: The Professionals, teams of professional chefs and restaurateurs will take on each other in a bid to be crowned the best independent restaurant in their town, county or city.

Each self-contained episode will feature three local eateries competing to claim the prestigious CDWM:TP award and a cash prize shared among the winning restaurant’s staff. Each restaurant will be represented by a partnership of two – for example the owner and head chef – who will welcome their rivals for a meal that they hope will impress.

The dinner takes place during a normal service, so the visitors will have the chance to check out the atmosphere, the food and the service.

At the end of each meal, the visiting restaurant pairs will score the evening out of 20 with the highest scorers overall scooping the prize.

Channel 4’s Jo Street said: “Come Dine With Me continues to be one of Channel 4’s best loved programmes with many memorable dinners served all over the UK in over 2,000 episodes. CDWM: The Professionals promises to really raise the stakes and we’re delighted to dish up this new extension on Channel 4 in 2022 to complement existing favourites Come Dine With Me and Couples Come Dine With Me.”

Disco Kitchen will feature on the first episode of Come Dine With Me - The Professionals at 5pm on Channel 4 on Monday, 27 June.
