Strictly star Oti Mabuse to join Dancing On Ice
The star will sit alongside Olympic ice-skating legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean as well as Diversity’s Ashley Banjo when DOI filming begins in January.
She has said: “As a professional dancer I have always had so much respect for the skating professionals on Dancing On Ice.
“It is an exceptional skill that is also so beautiful to watch.
“I’m feeling really enthusiastic about joining the panel alongside the legendary Torvill and Dean and Ashley Banjo.
“I can’t wait to see the celebrities thrive as they learn how to ice-skate and to champion the professional skaters as they create incredible choreography.
“Having been on both sides of the table, I know a little bit about how they’ll be feeling.
“It’s more than an honour and I already can’t wait to join the family.”
Oti’s ‘Strictly gratitude’
Two-time Strictly winner Oti hinted earlier this year that the 2021 show could be her last.
And Strictly fans speculated she may be leaving the show with her words following her exit from this year’s series alongside Ugo Monye.
She said: “I’m grateful for the show.
“To say that I work on the best show in the whole country, with the best celebrities, the best professionals, the best judges.
“It’s just a privilege and I’m just very grateful.”
