Former Our Perfect Wedding presenter Thembisa Mdoda is set to razzle-dazzle on the inaugural season of Dancing with the Stars SA.
Mdoda is the first celebrity contestant confirmed to take part in the dance reality show set to debut on M-Net on Sunday, February 4 2018.
Sowetanlive also announced that Veteran actor Frank Opperman is also confirmed to take part in the show.
“I have always wanted to be part of Dancing with the Stars,” Mdoda said in a statement.
“In the past, I’d watch the show, practice the steps and give myself 10 out of 10. I am so excited and can’t wait to make new memories. Mostly, I’m eager to learn some new steps and to have fun.” – Mdoda added.
Mdoda is following in the footsteps of her younger sister Anele, who in 2008 took part in season five of Strictly Come Dancing. She finished in fourth place.
Much like SABC’s Strictly Come Dancing, the show will see 12 untrained local celebrities team up with skilled professional Latin and Ballroom dancers to shake what their mommas gave them.
Radio and television personality Tracey Lange as well as heart-throb Chris Jaftha will host the show.
The other celebs who are set to compete with Frank and Thembisa will be announced soon.
