A vet swapped his stethoscope for a saucepan when he was accepted to appear on popular TV show Come Dine With Me.
Bournemouth-based Henry Feilden jumped at the chance to appear in the Channel 4 show – despite having no cooking experience.
Mr Feilden’s culinary capers began when researchers approached the Dorset Police Male Voice Choir, of which he is a member, to see if anybody was willing to participate.
He explained: “I am mischievous and thought it would be fun, so I said yes.”
Each episode of Come Dine With Me sees contestants hold dinner parties for each other, hoping to impress with their culinary creativity and hosting skills in a bid to win £1,000.
‘Lots of fun’
Mr Feilden said: “I would like to think we did Bournemouth proud and I am hoping I will continue to retain my RCVS membership and not be struck off.
“We had a great time and I hope it will come over as a nice group of people having lots of fun. However, it does come as high risk, I might be shown to be a complete idiot and bring the profession into disrepute – but watch this space.”
Mr Feilden even managed to get the choir into the programme as they entertained his guests.
