Cape Town - The well-received, well-liked and highly successful Come Dine With Me South Africa on BBC Entertainment (DStv 120) has been cancelled.

Come Dine With Me SA won't see a 4th season but BBC Worldwide says it will make a new locally produced format show for South Africa.

The first two seasons were well-liked, although viewers started complaining about over-commercialisation of the third season with sponsors and ads which became too intrusive.

Rapid Blue produced the three seasons of Come Dine With Me South Africa, with the format belonging to ITV Studios, with exceptionally high production values which delighted viewers and South African TV critics alike.

"Come Dine With Me South Africa was a huge hit for BBC Entertainment and we are very proud of the series," says Joel Churcher, the vice president and general manager Africa for BBC Worldwide.

"We feel the time is right to take this experience and seek new opportunities for a fresh, innovative local format for audiences to enjoy. We are committed to investing in the very best quality programming for our channels and are actively looking at all opportunities," says Churcher.
