What do one reality TV star, one soapie star, a drive time radio DJ star and a fashion designer to the stars have in common?
Well, actually they have two things in common, they’re all celebrities and they’re all on the premiere episode of Come Dine With Me South Africa Season Five.
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.
Candice Modiselle, actress and presenter, said “Come Dine With Me South Africa was arguably one of the most challenging but equally rewarding experiences. I’ve always been a fan of the show and was humbled to be invited to take part alongside my fellow celebrities.”
Christall Kay, reality TV star from the Real Housewives of Johannesburg said “I really love Nigella Lawson and want to become more of a domestic goddess, so thought that coming on the celebrity special of Come Dine With Me South Africa would be a great chance to show the audience a new side of me. ”
Gert Johan Coetzee, fashion designer and mentor on Project Runway SA said “I am someone who loves a new challenge. I have always liked cooking, but am much more confident at baking, so thought this would be a good, new fun thing to try out.”
Lucky Du Plessis, radio DJ on 947’s Greg and Lucky show said “I was really excited when I got asked to take part in the new season of Come Dine With Me South Africa as I am a big fan of the show. It really is a great way, quite literally, to see if people can stand the heat in the kitchen.”
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.
