Anniversary of airing of Peter Marsh 'enjoy the money Jane' episode of Come Dine With Me

Four years on and it’s still one of the most iconic meltdowns in TV history. Peter Marsh, a salesman from Oxfordshire, appeared on Channel 4 Come Dine With Me in January 2016. But Peter was left with a bitter taste in his mouth (and it wasn’t a problem with the cooking), when another contestant, Jane, took home the prize money.

When Peter read out the results, it was one of the most-loved TV moments of last decade. After the show aired, Mr Marsh broke his silence and told The Mirror that ‘what’s shown is not all that happens’ and blamed the show’s editors for the furore. Read the story from back in 2016 here 

Mr Marsh was an instant hit, and now you can even buy T-shirts and other merchandise with his killer line, ‘enjoy the money Jane’. He is still referenced often on social media.
