Award winning Reality Dining Show Returns to BBC Brit.
The SAFTA award winning Come Dine With Me South Africa will return for a fifth season on BBC BRIT, DStv channel 120, from Monday 11th March at 8pm with the celebrity special to kick things of, with a repeat on Saturdays at 7Pm.
Candice Modiselle, Christall Kay, Gert Johan Coetzee, and Lucky Du Plessis will all take each other on to be crowned best dinner party host and win ten thousand rand for their chosen charity in this celebrity special.
The new series is bigger than ever with a further 12 episodes showcasing the bold, the brave, the beautiful and sometime the most bolshie of South Africans from across Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth, so expect anything.
The series that gets everyone talking, will once again be produced by Rapid Blue and feature the hilarious and sometime savage commentary of voiceover legend Dave Lamb. The commission of a fifth series of Come Dine With Me South Africa is part of BBC Studios in Africa’s on-going commitment to providing high quality local productions for its audiences in South Africa alongside the very best in hit global shows.
