Narrator, Dave Lamb could be heard saying: “Darren’s only cooking for two after incidents which happened away from the dinner party.

“Rory’s been removed from the competition and his score has been deducted from Jennifer’s night.”

Viewers could see Rory arguing with fellow guests over Take That members, with him insisting that Gary Barlow is the best. Watch the full argument below in the heated footage.

After this, Rory left the show. Fans have taken to Social Media to request information as to why this happened, with Channel 4 yet to reply.


The hashtag #WhereisRory began trending on Twitter following the revelation, with fans looking for answers.

Kate Primrose wrote to the BBC Crimewatch team. She said:

“Hello @BBCCrimewatch I would like to report a crime. @Channel4 booted a contestant off Come Dine With Me with no explanation? #whereisRory”.

She followed it up by asking how to make a “freedom of information request”.

@Gulzm added her twist to the story: “Omg why was Rory kicked off though?! My guess is he was coked up during that Take That argument #comedinewithme #whereisRory”.

Bry pleaded the case to her followers: “Please somebody tell us #whereisRory”.

Matt Naismith dropped a bombshell on Twitter, which may or may not be true. He wrote: “The other 3 contestants threatened to leave the show if Rory was still in it. Or… there may of been a violent altication. #whereisRory”.
