Who’s Doing The Dishes? is a brand new daytime series for ITV presented by Brian McFadden featuring a host of celebrity faces all trying their hand at cooking…or cleaning as the case may be.
 
Each week, the programme follows four guests as they attend five dinner parties secretly hosted by different mystery celebrities in their own homes. Celebrity cooks include a host of stars from the world of TV, music and sport including; Louis Walsh, Claire Richards, Amy Childs, Jo Wood, Tina Malone, Wes Brown, Dane Bowers, Alison Hammond, Toyah Wilcox, Sian Lloyd, Vincent Simone, Cheryl Baker, Martin Offiah, Michelle Heaton, Gillian McKeith and Jo McElderry.
 
As the diners tuck in and deliver their culinary verdicts, they must try to work out who's cooking with the help of clues, which are hidden in the food as well as around the house.  The guests don’t know each other, but they must work together to try and figure out at the end of the evening who their celebrity host is.  If the team can successfully guess the name of the celebrity every night they can win a pot of cash to split between them and the celebrity will be putting their marigolds on. If they don’t, they’ll be doing the dishes! 
 
Gillian McKeith – Monday 29th September  
 
Who’s Doing The Dishes heads north of the border to Perth for the start of a new week, where nutritionist and presenter Dr Gillian McKeith plays mystery host for a new batch of lucky diners.
 
Renowned for her healthy lifestyle and nutritious regime there’s no fish and chips, or chocolate cake on the menu today, as Gillian cooks up a detox dinner. But will our diners appreciate their super-food supper or will Gillian’s raw lasagne turn their stomachs? With show tunes, and Gillian’s infamous bowel workouts aplenty there’s never a dull moment for Brian in the kitchen.
 
A new week brings new diners; whilst school guidance councillor Rachel leads the team with a firm hand, 44 year old builder Mick has a joke ready for any occasion. Joined by motor mouth security guard David, and 19-year-old Leeds Lovely Tamara, will the team get off to a winning start, or will they find themselves at the sink on their first night?
 
Joe McElderry – Tuesday 30th September
 
It’s off to Newcastle next for Brian and the gang, where one of the cities best known exports Joe McElderry, throw his doors open and lets four lucky strangers in to have a snoop around his house.
 
Brian and Joe take a trip down memory lane as they stroll along the bracing beaches of the North-East, before they remember that they’ve got 4 hungry diners fast approaching and have to dash back to the kitchen to get ready. Will Joe’s food have the X Factor or will it be 4 thumbs down from our judges?
 
After an unappetising first night at Gillian’s House the team are hoping for a Tyneside Treat from tonight’s celebrity host. 46 year old school councillor Rachel struck gold last night and got the team off to a winning start, but with David and Tamara struggling, and 44 year old builder Mick focused more on comedy than celebrity, she’ll need some more support from her team if they are going to dodge the dishes two nights in a row.
 
Neil Ruddock – Wednesday 1st October
 
Another day, another dinner, and tonight Football legend and hard man Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock cooks a famous feast for our four diners.
 
It’s a family affair round the Ruddock’s House, as Brian takes on Razor’s wife at a chilli eating competition, whilst his mum tidy’s up after the boys.  Neil and Brian create chaos in the kitchen with their eccentric cooking techniques. Will our diners be going hungry tonight or will the boys manage to get the food ready in time?
 
With last night’s defeat playing heavily on their minds the team are desperate to get another win and another £500 in the bank. But Razor is not a man used to losing, and has no intention of doing so today. School councillor Rachel and builder Mick have carried the team so far, but they will need support from the others if they are going to bounce back. Will sports fan David and Leeds Lovely Tamara be on the ball this evening, or will they spend another night watching from the side-lines?
 
Claire King – Thursday 2nd October
 
The Yorkshire Dales are the backdrop for tonight’s dinner party as Brian and the gang settle down for another evening of celebrity cuisine, this time in the beautiful Harrogate home of actress Claire King.
 
From Bad Girls to Emmerdale,  Claire has become known as the much loved face of some of Britain’s greatest TV dramas, but will it be Porridge for our fab four tonight or can Claire cook up a dinner fit for a King?
 
With three of our diners born-and-bred in Yorkshire, the team are on home turf tonight and will hope to use that to their advantage. But with Leeds Lovely Tamara yet to contribute this week, Mick and Rachel still carrying the team, and motor mouth David testing the patience of the others, tension is growing and there are cracks beginning to show in the team.
 
Gemma Collins – Friday 3rd October
 
The Only Way Is Essex, and that’s exactly where we’re off to tonight where Brian and the gang will be welcomed by reality TV Star Gemma Collins.
 
With our hungry diners on their way Brian and Gemma try to settle down to cooking, but Gemma is a popular girl and it’s hard to get anything done with her TOWIE friends Harry Derbidge and Ferne McCann dropping round for a gossip.
 
Our team are on a winning run and will be looking to end the week on a high, but with Gemma desperate to avoid those dishes she will fight whitened tooth and manicured nail to keep her identity secret. 44 year old Mick and 46 year old Rachel have partnered up and have led the way so far this week, but tonight is the last chance saloon for security guard David and Leeds Lovely Tamara to make their mark, and both are determined to be heard.
