Come Dine With Me South Africa is back on the BBC menu on DStv and a new round of casting has begun.

As you may know, the show was at the centre of a bad dinner date earlier this year when it was picked up by the SABC3 who put out a call for contestants.

It lasted two weeks on the channel before negotiations broke down between the SABC and production company Rapid Blue, who own the rights and withdrew the offer for the SABC to produce the show.

Flash forward five months and it's back on BBC Lifestyle, produced by Rapid Blue once again, with a more diverse reach than it was going to have on SABC3.

The SABC3 version was only going to feature hosts who live in Joziburg but the new version will be filmed in four cities again: Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth.

Who is the show looking for?

South Africa residents who:

- are a whizz in the kitchen
- have loads of personality & confidence
- love entertaining
- have the ability to perform under pressure
- have what it takes to meet a challenge

How to enter

Entries have opened and entry forms are available on the BBC website here: CDWMSA entry forms

Must know dates

Closing date for entries: 6 August 2017

Filming takes place later this year and the season will air in early 2018.

*Please note: if you entered the SABC3 version, your entries won't automatically be considered for this new season - you need to enter again.

The format
