Two women from west Suffolk have been crowned joint winners of an episode of Channel 4’s Come Dine With Me.


Nicola Saunders, 33, from Newmarket, and Sarah Jones, from Bury St Edmunds, shared the £1,000 winnings after impressing their fellow contestants.

The show, which aired on Wednesday, also featured rugby player and drummer Simon Cooper and barrister Simon Spence.

Ms Saunders, who is the owner of Trianik Cleaners Ltd, said: “It was amazing to win half the money and I have made some great friends too.”

She said the week was “fantastic and bonkers”, “fun and exhausting,” adding she had been nervous about the final cut.

Mr Cooper, 31, from Stanton, kicked off the first of the four dinner parties. “The last three days were some of the best of my life. I really, really enjoyed it,” he said.
