After 11 years of hearing only his voice, ‘Come Dine With Me’ viewers were shocked when he popped up during the new ‘Champions Of Champions’ series.
Dave was seen inviting previous winners to his country manor as they vied to be crowned the ultimate champ on Monday’s (1 February) show.

Come dine with me - weird to watch the narrator as well, only for a week for these episode specials— Mark Stanford (@Auntymary82) February 1, 2016
Ahead of his appearance, Dave took to Twitter to joke that it had been a rather different experience than when he usually goes to work on ‘Come Dine With Me’.
He tweeted: “Yep. For the first time in eleven years I've gone into work with my trousers on.”

However, you may not realise that this isn’t in fact Dave’s first time on screen.
He appeared as script writer Carl Morris on ITV comedy-drama ‘Moving Wallpaper’ in 2008, while he most recently appeared on revived version of ‘The Tracey Ullman Show’.
Dave Lamb fans will be able to catch him on-screen for the next fortnight, as the ‘Champion Of Champions’ series continues, airing weeknights at 5pm on Channel 4.
