Strictly's Kelvin Fletcher shocked by Oti Mabuse's 'intelligence' comment


Kelvin Fletcher and his pro partner Oti Mabuse took the Strictly ballroom by storm on Saturday night.

Their sizzling samba stunned the judges and fans at home, and they scored an impressive 32.

The pair appeared on the first Strictly: It Takes Two of the series last night (23.9.19), and Oti, 29, put her foot in it with an hilariously unintentional dig at Kelvin's mental prowess.

Oti, chatting to host Zoe Ball, said: "It was totally unexpected to get those kinds of critiques."

"Our jaws were on the floor when we got that first eight from Craig!" Kelvin agreed.

"You know what I say to him, he's quite intelligent so when I'm talking to him," Oti then said.

If only I could do one interview where I say something I don't regret!

Kelvin, 35, then joked: "'Quite'?!"

"If only I could do one interview where I say something I don't regret!" Oti grimaced as everyone laughed.

The dancing couple is fast becoming a fan favourite, and one to watch throughout the competition.

But the former Emmerdale star was hiding an embarrassing grooming blunder as he made his Strictly debut.

Kelvin was left blushing after his wife Liz Marsland pointed out that he'd only shaved one leg before performing live on the show.

Liz took to social media to laugh at her other half, who performed the Samba with professional partner Oti Mabuse.
