A James Bond theme evening hosted by an ex-footballer was on the bill on Tuesday’s Come Dine With Me .

The hit show rolled into town to pit five Teesside chefs against each other.

Tuesday night was the turn of Dan Molyneux, former goalkeeper for Darlington FC and wannabe steak chef.

And didn’t our contestants scrub up well?

Dan’s 007-inspired evening kicked off with champagne and barbed comments about Thursday’s host Jane Jorgensen’s resemblance to a Bond villan.

In between courses of cream of vegetable soup and steak, the guests got into a heated debate about the pronunciation of iconic bond Roger Moore.

The diners were not overwhelmed by his soup – but did his steaks fare better than those of last night’s host Gail Conlin?

The main’s came from “ Middlesbrough with Love”, according to Dan, and they went down a storm.

“I think there was a lot of love around the table tonight for the steak who loves me,” he said.

And as after dinner entertainment, Dan donned his Darlington jersey to challenge his guests to a penalty shoot-out.

It truly was a North-east derby, as Boro fan Jane slotted one past Newcastle supporter Dan to make it 1-0.

As a final course to his ‘mission to thrill’, Dan served “Live and Let Pie”.

His chocolatey pie was a crowd pleaser, with one diner describing it as the “scrummiest thing ever”.

He scored two sevens, an eight and a nine, leaving him in pole position with 31 points.

Last night,

Gail Conlin served up a steak dish to impress her guests in the culinary competition along with a starter of “tikka salmon with pomegranate jewels” and a jazzy key lime pie desert.

But to the dismay of some guests – the “very expensive steak” turned out to be actually venison – because it’s “dead dear”.

Next up is The Devil’s Advocate publican Gary Bainbridge, whose dessert is due to cause a stir.
