Come Dine With Me South Africa is back with a spicy 7th season.

Serving up a smorgasbord of local content every Wednesday, BBC Lifestyle (DStv channel 174) will be bringing back 12 new episodes of Come Dine With Me South Africa, featuring 48 extrovert and eccentric contestants from Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Expect two rounds of juicy 6-episode segments with the first six episodes airing from Wednesday 10th November at 8pm followed by the final six episodes, which will return after Christmas, to bring some January cheer from Wednesday 26th January at 8pm.

The SAFTA award winning show featuring ‘the good, the bad and the hungry’ will continue to be narrated by the hilarious voiceover legend Dave Lamb. The format follows four amateur chefs as they each host a three-course dinner party for the other contestants at their own home. Competitors then rate the host’s food and hosting skills at the end of each evening, with the highest-scoring chef winning R10,000 cash.

This season look forward to meeting new bold and brilliant personalities, such as self-proclaimed pug-aholic Judd, Russia obsessed Tamlyn and erotica writer Gina.
