Leeds fans have reacted with humour on Twitter after winger Jordan Botaka appeared on daytime television show Come Dine With Me.
The 23-year-old, who is currently on loan at Charlton Atheltic, helped a couple in need after they accidentally smashed plates that were ready to be served to guests.
DR Congo international Botaka, who is neighbours with the couple, gladly supplied them with new crockery during the show that aired on Channel 4 on Wednesday.
Botaka himself revealed on his personal Twitter account that he was “helping his good friends” after supplying his neighbours with new plates.
Many people wondering why I was on ''Come dine with me'' yesterday😅 Just helping my good friends and neighbours out that's all 😄

Botaka has had a disappointing stay in Yorkshire following his move from Dutch outfit Excelsior on deadline day last summer for around £1million.
The attacking winger, who grew up in Holland and represented the country at Under-19 level before opting to play for DR Congo, has made just 14 appearances in all competitions and was sent out on loan despite a promising pre-season.
The signings of Sporting Lisbon loanee Hadi Sacko, Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez has pushed Botaka down the pecking order at Elland Road. A move to the Valley seemed like the only option to prove his worth to manager Garry Monk.
