TOWN legend Frank Worthington has been cooking up a storm with some famous football faces.
Frank, 62, stars in Thursday’s Come Dine With Me England special on Channel 4.
The celebrity dining show will see participants cooking at each others’ houses and awarding points to decide on the best host.
Diving in to tackle Frank in the kitchen are the former West Ham and Liverpool hardman Neil “Razor” Ruddock and Wimbledon striker turned Gladiators presenter John Fashanu.
Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Carlton Palmer is also part of the line-up.
The former England players will battle it out for a £1,000 prize which will be donated to charity.
Frank was a hero of The Cowshed – the home fans stand – in the days when Town played at the old Leeds Road ground and was a real footballing showman.
He joined the club from amateur side Ripponden FC in 1964 and made his league debut three years later.
He went on to play in 192 games, scoring 45 goals, before his move to Leicester City in 1972.
Known as a party animal off the pitch, Frank’s dinner party remains true to form with an Elvis-themed spectacular on night three.
His food, however, comes in for a bit of stick from his fellow professionals and his jelly does not remain on the plates.
The show is set to get off to a raucous start when Neil Ruddock greets his guests in nothing but an apron.
The wine flows, but not for tee-totaller Fashanu, who doesn’t hold back when it comes to guessing his host’s weight, which he estimates at around 30 stone.
Frank Worthington is one of football’s cult figures, with moments of genius on the pitch and a colourful lifestyle outlined in his autobiography “One Hump or Two?”.
It was a free-wheeling career which started at Town, took in Leeds, management at Tranmere and even US soccer.
His reputation led to the oft repeated tag that he had more clubs than Nick Faldo.
He is particularly tough when it comes to John Fashanu’s culinary efforts.
The white wine is warm; the red wine is cold and the evening is not a success.
As you might expect with four former players however, the food takes second place to the footballing conversation and they are quickly recounting their experiences of the beautiful game.
Last up is Carlton Palmer who stages his own World Cup theme night and much to the disbelief of the others he’s taking on some complicated cooking.
Channel 4 has not yet revealed who won the chance to nominate the charity to receive the money, so viewers who think the former Huddersfield Town man is in with a chance should tune in.
It is broadcast on Thursday at 9pm.
