Behind-the-scenes at a dinner hosts' home

Whoop! There's some much needed laughter, merriment and irreverence on the way with the return of Come Dine With Me South Africa.

Season 7 premieres on BBC Lifestyle next Wednesday 10 November at 20h00 for the first part of the 12-episode season.

It goes on hiatus for the festive season and resumes on Wednesday 26 January at 20h00*.

*Updated on 26 January 2021: the comeback date changed to Wednesday 9 February.

Repeats are on Saturdays at 19h00 and Sundays at 18h00, with episodes on Catch Up too.

This is who we'll meet in Part I... match-up their pics with their descriptions:

Episode 1
On: Wednesday 10 November 2021 at 20h00

In week one the knives (and forks) are out in Johannesburg.

We travel to the urban jungle of Randburg and meet four bold and brilliant personalities: gentle self-proclaimed pug-aholic Judd, life of the party and fun-loving Caley, lover of all things ‘boujee’ Kholofelo, and the off-beat wine-loving family man Shamalan.

Episode 2
On: Wednesday 17 November 2021 at 20h00

Four more eccentric personalities are in Johannesburg for Week 2: digital marketing guru and chatterbox Adele serves up an Afrikaans inspired menu and MC and gin distributor Themba puts his ambitious menu to the test.

Law student Robyn joins the battle of the oxtail, and witty and well-travelled Hugh takes his guests around the world with his flavoursome creations.

Episode 3
Wednesday 24 November 2021 at 20h00

We remain in Johannesburg for a battle of the limelight as all four entertaining hosts work in the marketing industry.

Competing for the host-with-the-most title are comedy content creator and ex advertising guru Sipho, copywriter and Russia obsessed Tamlyn, self-confessed diva Emanuela, and boisterous and honest marketing manager Langa.

Episode 4
Wednesday 1 December 2021 at 20h00

Week four is a battle of the menus and dress-codes in Johannesburg as Ruvin, self-professed lady’s man Christopher, uber-confident critique of the week Kwaku, and erotica writer Gina compete to win the R10,000 cash prize. 

Episode 5
Wednesday 8 December 2021 at 20h00

We're in Cape Town this week with four new fantastic personalities: competitive radio sports presenter Nathan, mother to all Somila, confident and honest Lethabo and self-confessed social beast Grace.

With a Christmas feast topping of the week, the spirits are high but who will win the highest score?

Episode 6
Wednesday 15 December 2021 at 20h00

The final week of Part I is in Cape Town again with four brilliantly driven hosts.

It’s battle of the seafood as managing director, Christine, entrepreneur James, director of communications Priya and food blogger Natalia compete to win the cash prize.

Another Christmas feast gets the group in the festive spirit, but who will come out on top?
