Leeds United winger Jordan Botaka has taken to Twitter to explain a surprise appearance on daytime television show Come Dine With Me.

Eagle eyed supporters spotted the DR Congo international make a brief showing on screen, in one of the shows broadcast on Channel 4 this week.

Botaka, who was not one of the contestants, explains that he was simply helping out a friend with his cameo appearance.

Fleeting appearances rather than full roles have been all too common for Botaka, at Leeds last season where he made only three starts, and at Charlton Athletic, where he is on loan.

Botaka moved on loan to the League One club for the season this summer, but is out of favour with manager Russell Slade.

The 23-year-old has made five appearances, all from the bench, much to the frustration of Addicks fans hoping to see what he can do.
