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 Dave Lamb never fails to make the most of the participants' fumbles and foibles, with humurous and occasional savage commentary.
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...
The fifth season starts with a celebrity special featuring DJ and comedian Lucky du Plessis, "Real Housewives" star Christall Kay, fashion designer Gert-Johan Coetzee and Generations actress Candice Modiselle.
The show takes viewers into the homes of extroverted and eccentric citizens to see if they have what it takes to be crowned the host with the most, and take home the cash prize of R10,000.
Season 5 visits Pretoria, Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.
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.
