CAMPAIGN DIARY: Unlucky female WLTM any men rather than the sorry Dishes here

It’s hard to imagine a worse experience than going on Blind Date, but Channel 4’s Dishes must be worse, certainly if you’re Helen Dixson-Smith, a production assistant at Leo Burnett.

It’s hard to imagine a worse experience than going on Blind Date,

but Channel 4’s Dishes must be worse, certainly if you’re Helen

Dixson-Smith, a production assistant at Leo Burnett.



Dixson-Smith appeared in Thursday’s edition of Dishes, being wooed by

three strange guys. Dishes, in case you’ve been lucky enough to miss it,

is the show where three people vie for the attention of the ’picker’ by

cooking her a particular ’dish’. Our Burnett girl, however, drew the

short straw and was offered the choice of three young men who weren’t

quite sure how much they wanted her.



After Dixson-Smith revealed she didn’t like hairy backs or chests, her

first potential date was a Greek cockney whose body hair would have put

Clint Eastwood’s orang-utan sidekick, Clyde, to shame. After turning her

nose up at that, she was awarded a fairly cute, long-haired chap who

scored badly when Dixson-Smith asked him to dance and his lolloping

performance failed to impress. Helen’s final option was a bespectacled

bloke who felt no shame in admitting that he was a quality controller

for a ’well-known shopping channel’.



Then came the food. Number one rustled up a charming potato croquette

and chicken nugget surprise, while number two thought a Black Forest

gateau would charm Dixson-Smith into choosing him. Wisely, number three,

the geeky bloke, opted for a Mediterranean salad which won him the

date.



On the night, however, Dixson-Smith wasn’t overly impressed. Our hero

had apparently spent more time staring out of the window at passing

ladies than talking to her. We’d have gone for Mr Black Forest gateau.
