Come Dine With Me viewers were shocked as a contestant served up a deep fried lasagne.

Darren ‘Dazza’ Dowling from Scotland was tasked with creating a full three-course menu on the Channel 4 show and opted to deep fry everything – even a lettuce.

His less than healthy meal started with a deep-fried chicken and caviar dish, before he whipped up the fried pasta and lettuce. A deep fried chocolate bar with a dollop of ice-cream was the last of the batter fan’s calorific creations.

However, plenty of people were impressed by Dowling, who is known for online show Does It Fry?
