Cape Town - Michael Mol announced on Friday that Chamendran Naidoo, one of the four finalists of My Top Billing Dream, will be joining him as a co-host and medical consultant on The Dr Mol Show on SABC3.

Chamendran, a medical doctor who graduated from Stellenbosch University, grabbed the attention of Mol and his producers during the auditions for My Top Billing Dream, which was eventually won by Jonathan Boynton-Lee.

"I'm very honoured to be joining the SABC3 family," said Chamendran. "It's a huge opportunity for me to work with such an amazing, experienced team."

Michael Mol has for years been hoping to find the perfect medical professional with an aptitude for TV to join him on his TV show, and was instantly drawn to Chamendran's onscreen charisma during the Top Billing presenter search competition.

"To be honest I was hoping he wouldn't win," Michael jokingly confessed at a SABC3 Spring line-up presentation at the 15 on Orange Hotel in Cape Town.

Chamendran, 25, is originally from Durban and currently works at the South African Navy base in Simon's Town.

No date for Chamendran's first appearance in The Dr Mol Show has been determined yet.

The Dr Mol Show airs on SABC3 on Fridays at 15:45.
