The backlash was almost immediate. It was clear that viewers, who were live tweeting Thursday's episode of Come Dine With Me South Africa, were not fans of Durban socialite and businessperson, Sanesh Bhengu. 

The champagne loving socialite was showing off her cooking and hosting skills on the show, where she competed against fellow Durbanites, Rourke Mc Arthur, Stephen Wilken and Georgia Bowers. But it was her that the viewers were recoiling to.


Ouch! Her antics on the show left much to be desired- from her love of hot sauce on everything, to touching other people's food, which promptly got her dragged on Twitter But she also saw the funny side of her antics on the show, going on Instagram and calling herself an idiot.

Was it a good representation of the foodies of Durban? No. But was it entertaining? Yes! 

 C atch the next episode of Come Dine With Me South Africa, Thursday at 8pm on BBC Brit (DStv 120)
