Love Back

Mzansi Magic

Saturdays, 5.30pm

Premieres on January 11 2015

Cupid has arrived a month early. Love Back ­rekindles the flames between estranged lovers.

The new dating reality show, hosted by comedian and ­actor Thomas Gumede, gets the ball rolling for those who want to reunite with former lovers – going from break-ups to make-ups and eternal bliss.

But that’s only if it’s not too late for the couples to get things back together again.

As if going from break-ups to make-ups was not enough, Mzansi Magic premiered the fourth season of its popular wedding show, Our Perfect Wedding, which now boasts a new presenter in comedienne Tumi Morake.

The first couple featured in the new season was Puseletso Theka and Melusi Trinity ­Mbhele, who have been together since 1998.

Their big day was refreshing because it deviated from the weird and wacky parade of ridiculous ­couples we have become used to – particularly ­during the third season.

The return to real love and matrimony had Melusi going all out to impress his woman with a brand-new BMW 6 Series. Unfortunately, a lavish party did not go as planned and had its fair share of delays and drama with late caterers and underwhelming décor, which the couple jointly felt was the undoing of their perfect wedding bliss.

Morake, in taking over from Phumeza Mdabe, did not disappoint as the presenter.
