Come Dine With Me South Africa 7 resumes

Come Dine With Me South Africa 7 returns from hiatus with the second half of the season, beginning with Episode 7.

Narrated by the comedic Mr Dave Lamb, the knives (and forks) are out - but who will take home the R10,000 cash prize?

The show is in North Johannesburg for week seven with four bold and brilliant personalities – glamourous Leago, radio presenter Leah, engineer Nevashnee and ex Sharks rugby player Katt.

Night 1 is straight-talking Leago, who pulls out all the stops with her glamourous dress code.

With her 'Miss Glam' apron intact, Leago serves a three cheese salmon salad to start, fall off the bone lamb shank with parmesan mash for mains and a baked cheesecake to finish.

Katt pretends to enjoy the starter but doesn't shy away from his opinion behind closed doors and the group criticise the portion size and seasoning.

Conversation turns to occupation and dating apps and there's a joyful energy around the table, but will Leago's hosting skills be enough to win the prize?

It's Night 2 and radio presenter Leah pulls out all the stops in her preparation – she even uses balloons in her dessert.

For starters she serves a butternut and chorizo laksa, for mains it's a lemon and lime chicken with black rice and her unique balloon desert is a chocolate surprise.

Leah's 'your best self' dress code goes down well but her food doesn't quite hit the spot.

Will her impressive preparation put her at the top or go down like a lead balloon?

Night 3 is engineer Nevashnee's turn to host and she doesn't hide her competitive spirit.

She serves a spicy chicken ramen, prawn curry and masala chai crème brulee.

The glitter and galactic dress code encourages very interesting outfit choices and talk turns to adventurous experiences.

The night is full of flavour and fun but will her culinary skills give her the edge?

The final night is for plumber and ex Sharks rugby player Katt to cook for the ladies.

His menu includes spicy cheese and bacon croquettes, short rib gnocchi and chocolate cheesecake.

The main doesn't quite go to plan when his homemade gnocchi ends up in the bin.

The guests are quick to question the discrepancies but enjoy the rib anyway.

There's honest feedback as the night progresses and the guests discuss their first impressions.

Will Katt score a try or will one of his guests take the trophy?

The 'Ragdoll Killer' taunts the police by sending them a list of his next victims, with Rose's name among them.

They start the day making all the necessary arrangements for the wedding and by that afternoon they should be at the altar.

But will the couple be able to make their dream wedding a reality in the space of one day?
