THEIR recipe for a successful marriage is simple: add one part love, a good dash of trust and a splash of commitment. But Connie and Shona Ferguson have another key ingredient: friendship. And this year they will put that friendship to the test when they star alongside each other for the first time.

Yet it’s a test we know they’ll pass with flying colours because, after a decade of marriage in the public eye, this happy couple has their love match down pat.The lovebirds will play two of the lead roles in the groundbreaking new M-Net series The Wild – a soapie set at a five-star game lodge – which starts in April. Connie (40) stars as Marang Lebone, a wealthy mother figure from an affluent family, while Shona (37) will portray Ithumileng Tladi, a charismatic yet dark character with a complicated nature.

It’s Connie’s first major role since her 16-year stint as Karabo in Generations, and Shona’s first since he bowed out of his role as Alex on e.tv soapie Scandal!.
