Oti Mabuse drops the most important lead, however she strictly abandons Come Dancing

Oti Mabuse left the biggest clue, but she’s going to leave Strictly Come Dancing.

The professional dancer recently joined the competition show Dancing On Ice as a judge, which sparked speculation about her future in the BBC ballroom competition.

One of Strictly’s biggest stars, Oti, said there will be “an announcement” later, adding that she wants to “learn and grow”.

During a press briefing, she said of her tight future, “There will be an announcement that will be made later, but I think for myself as a person in the entertainment business, I really want to learn and I want to grow and I want to be for a long time.” Career, especially in this country, like I moved all the way out of Africa!

“So I have to make something of myself. So I’m really trying to learn and do as much as I can, as long as I can, as long as I can. “

Oti joined the professional dancer line-up at Strictly in 2015 and won the show twice.

Oti and Kelvin Fletcher won the Glitter Ball in 2019, and she took the 2020 trophy home with Bill Bailey and became the first professional to win in two consecutive years.

She was confirmed as the new judge on ITV’s Dancing On Ice last month, replacing the outgoing John Barrowman.

It was also announced earlier this week that Oti will be hosting her own dating show for ITV called Romeo And Duet later this year.

In her new role on Dancing On Ice, she will judge a former Strictly colleague, while ex-professional Brendan Cole will go on the ice as a candidate.

Of him, she said (via PA Media), “I think he will be different because strictly speaking he was very verbal defending his celebrity. If he was really passionate about his celebrity, he was really defending her. This time it is him, we judge him.

“He’s grown a bit and I hope that he will take it up and use it as an opportunity to really show another side of him, where Vanessa takes care of him and not him as the caretaker.”

Dancing On Ice starts on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. on ITV.
