EXCLUSIVE: Nine has halted production on upcoming reality series Celebrity Come Dine with Me just 9 days before filming was due to commence.
The ITV Australia series, which has previously had seasons on Pay TV, is based on a UK format of the same name with celebrities hosting dinner parties and scoring one another.
A Nine spokesperson told TV Tonight it has delayed the series due to production issues.
Sources indicate Nine was happy with the casting.
