Season three of The Dan Nicholl Show, kicks off on Wednesday, 16 March 2016 at 7pm on SuperSport 1, promising more celebrity guests, exotic shoot locations, and unexpected stories from some of South Africa’s most well-known people.
Guests in season two ranged from AB de Villiers, Akani Simbine and Kevin Pietersen, to Tumi Morake, DJ Fresh and Gareth Cliff, and after a seeing a marked increase in viewership and social media interest, host Dan Nicholl is excited about the line-up for season three.
“We have the Rio Olympics on the horizon, so look out for some Olympians coming up on the show, starting with 2012 London medallist Bridgitte Hartley in our first week,” Nicholl reveals. “We’ve also got Maps Maponyane on week one – which should send our teenage viewership through the roof. We’ll also have the new Miss South Africa and football star Quinton Fortune on the following week, so the guest list is already looking exciting.”
This lifestyle and magazine show boasts life insurance player BrightRock as its headline partner. It has a history of international travel, with past inserts having been filmed on location in Mauritius, Zambia, Switzerland, Scotland and England; season three will include time spent in Bangkok, Thailand, as well as something rather special from the Laureus World Sport Awards in Berlin, as Laureus continues as the show’s official charity partner.
“We’re also looking to continue the show’s good karma,” Nicholl adds. “Charl Schwartzel (Former Masters champion), George Coetzee and Bertine Strauss have all won big golf tournaments since making an appearance. David Miller won a huge T20 game for South Africa, Moeneeb Josephs made a crucial penalty save in a knockout cup game for Wits, Stormers coach Robbie Fleck won his first two games of the season. Maybe we should have Steve Khompela on the show…”
The show will once again be filmed in front of a studio audience, and the #LoveChange showcase in partnership with BrightRock will continue to stock up with very personal gifts from guests. In season two, those gifts ranged from hockey star Shelley Russell’s first South African shirt, to Downhill World Champion Greg Minnaar’s winning riding goggles.
“We are immensely pleased with the growing success of The Dan Nicholl Show, which wouldn’t be possible without the fans’ enthusiastic support of the series. We are thrilled to continue this incredible journey and looking forward to Season 3, where we’ll hear even more stories of how icons have dealt with the Change Moments in their lives and careers,” concludes Suzanne Stevens, Executive Marketing Director, BrightRock.
