IF PEO­PLE were to come dine with me tonight, they’d be sit­ting in front of the TV eat­ing third-day chow mein left­overs, watch­ing pre­view discs for TV shows.

I doubt I would do too well on ei­ther the food or the en­ter­tain­ment score.

Ch­eryl is tonight’s host and to say she’s ec­cen­tric is some­thing of an un­der­state­ment.

There’s leopard print mats, pants, place­mats, a bed­spread. Oh, and she has a cow-print in­spired room too.

‘‘ This is not staged, this is how I live,’’ she says proudly.

Ch­eryl de­clares her­self a ‘‘ born en­ter­tainer’’ and has a life-size pic­ture of her­self dressed as Won­der Woman — she used to do that for a liv­ing in Asia. I nor­mally don’t care too much for nar­ra­tion (see the Mil­i­tary Tat­too re­view), but James Valen­tine is ac­tu­ally pretty funny — he’s so bitchy.

I love the idea of this show — get five strangers to take it in turns to cook for each other in their homes.

They score each other and then at the end of the week some­one wins $2000.

And what a bunch these din­ner party guests are —

Bitchy: James Valen­tine
