A CHESTERFIELD car salesman is getting ready for his 15 minutes of fame as he stars in a TV show.
Paul Nicholson, a sales executive at Gordon Lamb Nissan, in Discovery Way, will appear on the hit Channel 4 series, Couples Come Dine With Me, alongside his partner, Sarah Slater.
The hour-long episode will air to millions from 5pm on Monday night (May 25).
Paul and Sarah, from Dronfield, in Derbyshire, competed against other couples from the region to win a £1,000 cash prize – by staging the best dinner party.
Paul, 36, who is remaining tight-lipped on how they got on, can’t wait to sit down and watch it with his family.
He said: “I’m looking forward to seeing the finished show – and so is everyone else at Gordon Lamb Nissan. I think I’ll be in for some stick from my colleagues afterwards.”
The programme is a new take on the long-running series, Come Dine With Me.
Paul and Sarah host the first dinner party – but don’t expect to see the Nissan salesman doing much cooking.
He said: “My partner did most of it – I just tried to help out where I could, as I’m not that great in the kitchen.
“It was weird having strangers in your house and a film crew in your kitchen, but we enjoyed every minute of it.”
Paul joked: “I’ll be waiting a call from Hollywood once it’s aired.”
