Available to download from iTunes for £1.79p, the app will feature wine suggestions from the programme’s sponsor Hardys and recipe suggestions.

Wine tasting tutorials will also enable users to act as a wine connoisseur whilst hosting a successful dinner party.

The app will also offers fans of the show "sophisticated three course meal menu options, the ability to create a shopping list for ingredients, plus a scoring system so guests can rate the success of their host’s efforts" and a series of wine tasting tutorials.

It will also offer classic quotes from the show’s sarcastic narrator, Dave Lamb.

Helen Warner, Channel 4’s head of daytime, said: ‘ We are really excited to be able to give fans of the show an opportunity to be part of Come Dine With Me and experience the trials and tribulations that contestants have to go through when hosting their own dinner party.

"What better way to do it than with a helping hand on recipe and wine choices, scoring systems and a few choice comments from our very own Dave Lamb?"

The new app launches today (Friday) through the Apple iTunes store.
