In the years that Come Dine With Me has been on air, one of its staples has been narrator Dave Lamb – who’s been with the show since the off.

The actor has been the voice of the Channel 4 show – contestants try to score a perfect 40 from strangers for their home-cooked meals – since 2005, although away from that he’s also had a successful career as an actor and voiceover artist.

One question Come Dine fans often ask, however, is whether he has any connection to a certain other actor with the surname Lamb – that is, Larry Lamb, best known as EastEnders’ Archie Mitchell.

Are the two of them actually related?

Are Dave Lamb and Larry Lamb related?

They might share a surname, but that’s the only thing that Dave and Larry have in common – as the Come Dine With me stalwart and the ex-EastEnder are not related in any way.

Dave is also no relation of sports presenter George Lamb – who is in fact Larry’s son.

Larry Lamb, 73, has had a long and successful career on both the big and small screen, appearing in the likes of Triangle, Lovejoy, Our Friends In The North, Murphy’s Law and A Touch Of Frost before EastEnders came calling.

He starred as Archie Mitchell from 2008 until Christmas 2009, when the character was murdered by Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) – and more recently was seen as a contestant on I’m A Celebrity in 2016.

While they may not be related, Larry and Dave do have Albert Square in common – as EastEnders does indeed feature on Dave’s acting CV.

He appeared in two episodes, airing on June 1 and June 3, all the way back in 2004.

He played a bouncer in the soap – although his character, unfortunately, doesn’t appear to have had a name.

Come Dine With Me airs weekdays on Channel 4 at 5pm.
