In Warwickshire four amateur cooks compete for the £1000 prize. Former Miss Rugby Jade Hollis takes on film and TV extra Susan Gillis, recruitment boss Lee Bunting and academic Dr Alan James.

Will Alan's challenging menu, including slow-cooked sweet and sour mackerel, distract the women? Might peace break out over the mango with vanilla?
