The primetime cookery show in which amateur chefs attempt to wow each other with their culinary and hospitality skills in order to win a cash prize returns with a new season made in South Africa.
The format is simple: South African chefs takes it in turn to host a dinner party and the guests score the host on their way home.
Throughout, Come Dine With Me's narrator never fails to make the most of the participants' fumbles and foibles.
Of course, with personality clashes at almost every dinner party, it's often not just the champagne corks that go with a bang as insults are traded, homes are snooped around, and the flowing wine loosens the diners' tongues...
Episode 1 takes place in Pretoria and serves up a mix of kitchen drama, shocking guests and delicious entertainment. Prepare to meet pole dancing Carmi, hyper-critical Phillipine, amateur dramatic Ian and chatty Nonhlanhla.
Carmi is up first, serving Thai Green Curry and homemade ice cream, but the main attraction of the evening is a shiny dancing pole which sees her guests' inhibitions fly out the window.
Hosting the second evening is Phillipine, and a night of claws and barely concealed criticisms are quickly revealed.
Next up is Ian with a touch of madness, drama and a big dose of double entendre. Who cares about the food – bring on the air guitars.
The final night and it's up to bubbly Nonhlanhlato take the crown. Her prawn starters and berry compote dessert set the tone for a lively and hilarious evening, but will she have what it takes to win the cash prize?
Come Dine With Me South Africa is executive produced by Kee-Leen Irvine and Duncan Irvine. The series is an ITV Studios format licensed by ITV Studios Global Entertainment and produced by Rapid Blue for BBC Brit.
