BBC Studios has renewed Come Dine with Me South Africa for a 5th season on BBC Brit (DStv 120) that will start in 2019, with producers now looking for contestants for the 12 episodes of the new season.
South Africans interested in entering for the chance to host dinner parties and be judged by the other contestants have until Wednesday 29 August to enter at www.BBCSouthAfrica.com.
Production company Rapid Blue continues to produce the ITV Studios Global Entertainment format for BBC Studios, with the South African version that also features the voice-over narration of Dave Lamb.
The upcoming 5th season of Come Dine with Me SA will again film in Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth.
"The popularity of the latest season of Come Dine With Me South Africa is testament to the fact that the local audience enjoy some home-grown entertainment and South African hosting antics," says Joel Churcher, general manager and vice president of BBC Studios in Africa.
"We had a break between seasons three and four and were overwhelmed not only by the return of the shows’ very loyal fans but also by how many new audiences the show attracted too."
"BBC Brit is excited to once again partner with Rapid Blue to offer a distinctly South African take on a hugely popular international format. We look forward to discovering some new vibrant, entertaining personalities to take part in the latest season and surprise and delight audiences across South Africa."
