A Come Dine With Me contestant claims she was forced to eat her Wetherspoons lunch on a bench outside – after she was kicked out for taking her dog inside.
Sharon Woodhouse, 42, says she expects better treatment as a “reality TV star” after she was asked to leave The Savoy pub in Swindon, Wiltshire.
Sharon was joined by Jane Buckle, who also appeared on the Channel 4 show, and pooch Boris, as they nipped into the eatery ahead of a photoshoot.
The pair didn’t notice indoor signs stating ‘assistance dogs only’ and ordered food.
But they were asked to leave after it arrived – so Sharon ate it on a bench outside.
Jane, who has also appeared on OAPs Behaving Badly, said: “As I am a reality TV star it was disgusting the way we were treated.
“Firstly they said Boris couldn’t come inside so I sat outside on the tables provided.
“Then one of the staff came out and removed me from there so I sat on a seat in the middle of Swindon high street eating to the bewilderment of passers-by.
“The indignity of it all, especially as I am a pensioner.
“It felt very uncomfortable in every way especially as passers-by recognised Sharon and me from Come Dine With Me.”
Boris is another familiar face to viewers after appearing on TV in pet insurance adverts last year.
Jason Nash, shift leader at The Savoy, said he would have taken a more lenient stance had he been aware of the incident.
Jason said: “No dogs allowed, apart from guide dogs and assistance dogs. It’s the same for the whole company. Not allowed on the premises at all.
“But usually if they’ve already bought a drink and they have a dog I’m quite lenient as I love dogs.
“They should have been allowed to eat and drink, but then they would have to go.
“That’s just company policy.”
