Johannesburg -  The BBC series Come Dine With Me will be filmed in South Africa during August and September and it will feature local contestants.

According to a statement by the BBC, it is the first local production from any of the BBC Worldwide channels that will be shot in Africa.

The series consists of ten episodes in which four contestants per episode compete against each other to be the best host.

To win the competition contenders have to impress with their culinary skills as well as their hosting abilities at a dinner.

The host with the most points in each episode wins.

The series will premiere in October on BBC Entertainment (DStv channel 120) in South Africa.

      go to the BBC website but apparently you have to be in JHB CT or Durbs.

      You had to enter by the 13 July. I did - hope for an audition :)

      "How do I enter?" You ask. Well... In the words of that wise old Chinese gentleman named Confucius on comparatives between females and ovens: "First warm up before put meat inside". That should do the trick Muffia ;)

    It is not a BBC show, it is a Channel 4. Oops!

      But it's premiering on BBC Lifestyle #fail

    It will probably be a total bore - just like every other reality show format the Saffers have copied. Survivor, The Apprentice, Idols...Yawn!

      You have a choice not too watch it. Maybe you should rather read a book or masturbate.

      I would rather go have my teeth pulled

      @Trip - are my choices limited to reading and masturbating? one of those only kills about 30 seconds of my evening.

      TRiP - 2011-07-22 11:30

      @rantoftheday - do I need to supply you with choices? you have no imagination to come up with other things to do than not to watch reality TV, I feel sorry for you. And if reading or masturbation can keep you busy for a mere 30 seconds, then I definitely pity your partner and would not be surprised if they are having an affair.

      @Trip - what a humourless, angry, sad little person you are! So many assupmtions made on a light-hearted comment on an online forum. Chill, trolling eventually makes you a bitter, twisted individual. I wouldn't be surprised if you end up alone, at home, watching some show about the Kardashians because you have no social skills and no one wants to enage in conversation with you.
