E! announced a brand-new local production titled ‘Celebrity Game Night’ earlier this year and as we get closer and closer to the show’s debut, the channel has announced that Anele Mdoda, who is fresh off hosting the third season of The Voice South Africa will serve as the show’s host with Jason Goliath and Ayanda Thabethe joining as team captains.

Together, they will bring audiences bucket loads of fun and laughs as they gather with a group of your favourite celebrities for an evening of raucous entertainment. The ten, one-hour episode series will begin production in Johannesburg this week and will premiere late 2019 on E! (DStv channel 124).

“I’m so excited to host Celebrity Game Night on E! and can’t wait for viewers to join the party! Hanging out with Jason, Ayanda and our top celebrity guests on my sofas is going to be hilariously wild. Let the games begin!” said Anele Mdoda.

“Be warned – this isn’t a typical game show. Joining Celebrity Game Night as a team captain and trying to wrangle a crowd of stars with Anele and Ayanda is going to be epically entertaining” commented Jason Goliath. “My team is going to have plenty of laughs – but more importantly, we’re also going to win.”

“Celebrity Game Night is going to be the hottest A-list ticket in town” added Ayanda Thabethe. “If you’ve ever wondered how the rich and famous let their hair down and have a good time…this is the show for you! It’s going to be so much fun I don’t think it will feel like work.”

The show is based on the Primetime Emmy Award winning series Hollywood Game Night, hosted by Jane Lynch. In each episode, two teams of celebrity guests will face off as they play hilarious and outrageous party games that test pop culture knowledge, acting skills and nerves of steel. As host, Mdoda will guide well-known African celebrities over the course of each episode, alongside team captains Goliath and Thabethe, to ensure the game night is filled with fun and frolics.
