The SAFTA award-winning series, Come Dine with Me South Africa, is back for its fifth season from Monday 11th March on BBC BRIT, DStv Channel 120 – and this season is serving up 13 episodes, more than ever before, so expect anything… and I do mean anything.
To start the new season off with a bang, audiences can look forward to a celebrity special premiere episode. The four celebrities taking part will be revealed from 18th February, so stay tuned for more information.
The series that gets everyone talking, will once again be produced by Rapid Blue and feature the hilarious and sometimes savage commentary of voiceover legend Dave Lamb. The show will be bigger than ever before with 13 episodes this season, to really showcase the best of South Africa’s dinner party hosting abilities, so expect anything…
Come Dine With Me South Africa takes viewers into the homes of some of the country’s most extrovert and eccentric citizens to see if they have what it takes to be crowned the host with the most, and take home the much-coveted cash prize of R10,000. Season five will visit Pretoria, Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.
Joel Churcher, Vice President and General Manager of BBC Studios in Africa said, “We are really excited to see what the reception will be to season five of Come Dine With Me South Africa when it returns to BBC BRIT on the 11th March. Not only does the new season kick off with four famous faces, but then goes on to showcase some of the funniest and most outrageous South Africans yet. It really is a show where you can expect anything. BBC BRIT, as the home of the best in big, bold entertainment, showcases that there really is no better a destination for watching hit global shows alongside the very best in home-grown entertainment.”
The commission of the 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.
Come Dine With Me South Africa was the first local commission from BBC Worldwide for its channels in the EMEA region and debuted in South Africa in 2011.
