DINNER party hosts in a household near you are brazenly lying about their cooking prowess, research has found.

Millions of people in the South East have admitted they regularly pull the wool over their guests' eyes by trying to pass off ready-made meals as their own work.

Of these culinary charlatans (34 per cent of us), one in 10 has been caught red-handed, while 20 per cent said they ask their mum to cook then take the credit.

So when you're next at a dinner party sipping Rioja and ranting about MPs' expenses, take some time to ask how your host made the nosh.

You might find the old "it's a secret family recipe" gets pulled out of the bag just a little too often.
