BREAKING. Scandal hits SABC1's Class Act: top 10 finalist disqualified, replaced because of mysterious ''contractual issues''.
You're reading it here first.
I can exclusively reveal first that scandal has hit SABC1's Class Act reality show with the producers forced to make an unexpected, unplanned and shocking change to the top 10 contestants less than 24 hours after the top 10 Class Act wannabees were announced on Saturday.
Producers of Class Act looking for a leading hero type actor, had to scramble and backtrack on their just announced top 10 by suddenly dumping Cape Town's Denzil Thompson after he has already spent several days as part of the top 10 group.
The producers at this point is only willing to confirm that Denzil Thompson ''has unfortunately been disqualified'' from Class Act and that it comes ''as a result of contractual issues''. Denzil Thompson, a 26 year old waiter from Zeekoeivlei has immediately been replaced with a new top 10 contestant, Lungwelo Gwala from Durban. The Class Act judges also had to be called in to decide who would replace Denzil Thompson.
I have asked for what the specific contractual problem with Denzil Thompson was, and when or if I get an answer, I'll post it right here.
