The SA season of Come Dine With Me has been commissioned in partnership with the Johannesburg-based production company Rapid Blue.

For each episode on the show, four people who are complete strangers step into each other’s homes with the hope of being wined‚ dined and entertained. They will also be in with the chance of winning R10‚000.

Filming for new episodes will commence in four different cities – Cape Town‚ Durban‚ Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth later this year. The new series promises to be better than others before it.

Joel Churcher, General Manager and Vice President Africa, BBC Worldwide says had this to say about the comeback;

Come Dine With Me South Africa quickly established itself as a South African sensation, taking us into the dining rooms of some of the country’s most intriguing characters.

“I’m pleased that BBC Lifestyle is joining forces with Rapid Blue once more to offer a distinctly South African take on a hugely popular international format.”

Though the South African version debuted in SA in 2011, Come Dine With Me is now produced in 34 countries including Germany‚ France and Australia.
