Six women hosting ‘Come Dine With Me’ lockdown dinner party busted by police

A group of friends who held a "Come Dine With Me" style dinner party have been given awful scores by police.

Their get-together, which was busted by Humberside Police, sparked fury with lockdown-following neighbours.

The women, who had even had a mocked up an invitation for their plush meal, have been lambasted on social media, Hull Live reported.

England is currently under a strict national lockdown in a desperate bid to drive coronavirus infections down and avoid deaths.

It is illegal to meet up with other households in an indoor setting – but that did not deter the six pals, who even snapped a selfie of their evening.

As frontline NHS workers in Hull battle to keep residents safe, Brooke Fairburn invited her friends to her home for a dinner party inspired by the cult Channel 4 cookery show.

When confronted by Hull Live on Sunday morning, attendee Paige Dyson said: "I'm waiting on my big fat breakfast because I am rough."

Meanwhile, attendee Jodelle Demoulpied told social media critics: "You worry about yourself and I'll worry about myself."

A picture of the printed invitation was posted on social media before a self was shared shortly afterwards, showing the friends huddled inside a property.

It wasn’t long before police were informed and arrived to spoil the dinner.

Consisting of "Abi Bradford, Jodelle Demoulpied, Delee Tuttle and your host Brooke Fairburn", the social media post claimed the girls would meet up at a house in north Hull from 6pm on Saturday, November 21.

It concluded: "Thank you for attending, I look forward to hosting you."

Two people not listed on the invite – Shawnee Tasker and Paige Dyson – were tagged in the photo.

It was captioned: "Come dine with me crew coming for you. 2 new members 2-day benders!"

Humberside Police confirmed officers attended, three and a half hours after the event started.

The women were "very cooperative", the force said and left the property "without the need for enforcement", which can come with fines up to £10,000.

One person who had seen the posts, who did not want to be named, called it an "utter disgrace".

"It's pretty obvious, to be honest. Things like this are the reason the infection rate is going up," they said.

Another critic posted: "This hits a nerve on a whole different level. Pure and utter selfishness!"

Host Brooke initially called the allegations "a load of s***" and said "it was before lockdown", but did not respond to Hull Live when faced with an image of the invitation with her name on.

Humberside Police have confirmed that they attended the party on Saturday.

The force said: "Upon attendance, our officers followed the approach of engaging with the group, explaining the regulations and encouraging them to follow them. The women at the property were very cooperative and left the property without the need for enforcement.

"It is absolutely critical that everyone continues to follow the regulations set out to keep people safe and stop the spread of the virus."
