Tom Hardy watches 'Come Dine With Me' "religiously".

'The Dark Knight Rises' star has confessed that when he's not busy preparing for film roles or on set he likes to relax in front of the TV and watch as some of Britain's best and worst amateur chefs attempt to host a successful dinner party.

Speaking about his love for the Channel 4 show, he said: "I'm into 'Come Dine With Me' at home, religiously. I'm an absolute fanatic.

"I put it on for the dogs as well when I go out. They've got to feel that someone's in the house."

The 36-year-old actor also revealed that 'Come Dine With Me' isn't the only trash TV he likes to keep up-to-date with.

Quizzed on whether he'd seen 'Dinner Date', he told The Sun newspaper: "Oh yeah, I watch that, it's great as well. I am an absolute sucker for that. Guilty pleasures are good.

"There's so much serious going on, it's nice to offset serious with not so serious."

Tom previously admitted that 'Come Dine With Me' was the inspiration for some of his most popular movie characters, including his portrayal of Forrest Bondurant in 'Lawless'.

He said: "I really do like 'Come Dine With Me'. It's great people-watching. I'll steal characters from 'Come Dine With Me' because they're real people. I take something from everybody."
