Come Dine with Me South Africa 4

Channel: BBC Lifestyle (DStv 174)
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Reality, Food

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...

Will these be new episodes of Come Dine With Me SA 4?  Meaning will they be picking up from episode 13 of season 4?  Season 4 ended about 2 weeks ago with episode 12.
