Johannesburg - As soon as it was announced that actress Thembisa Mdoda would be the new host of Our Perfect Wedding, we, like many of you, couldn't contain our excitement.

Each season the show sees a new host take over the reigns, and despite rumours that the host is replaced because of the backlash, Mzansi Magic has confirmed that it is in fact the format of the show.

The gal says Black Twitter isn't a concern, though. "Of course I'm nervous. But I'm going to handle it like I do with everything else in life: to have the utmost respect for me, my family and my children. The more I do that, the less I give a damn about people who have negative things to say."

Speaking on The Buzz show on, Thembisa revealed that she had actually auctioned for season five of the show.

"I auditioned for the last season and when I got asked to audition again this time, I was like 'Should I? Shouldn't I' But the show is the epitome of who I am: just about love."

She has already started filming for the new season which is set to air in January, and says she's beyond excited. "It's insane. I have to pinch myself every time. It's such a great show and I'm like, 'Thembisa, guuurl, are you up for this?'"

Yes, guuurl, you are!
