But will our current reigning dance captain, Oti Mabuse, pick the winning contestant again? Here’s the low-down on our dancing queen…
Who is The Greatest Dancer dance captain Oti Mabuse?
Best Known for: Although she studied Civil Engineering, ballroom dancing was always Oti’s calling — in particular Latin — and back in 2015 she joined Strictly Come Dancing as a professional dancer, winning the nation’s hearts in the process with her combination of warmth and masterful choreography.
However, she blitzed the competition after she was partnered with last-minute replacement Kelvin Fletcher – who became the nation’s thirst-trap thanks to his sensational hips.
Let’s just take a second to remind ourselves, shall we?
In 2016, Oti made Strictly history with her celebrity dance partner Danny Mac, after their scintillating Samba became the first to score four tens from each of the judges.
It was dubbed the “perfect samba masterclass” by judge Darcey Bussell and likened to a “pagan mating ritual” by a very excited Bruno Tonioli. Oti and Danny later made it to the 2016 Strictly Come Dancing final.
Oti is originally from Pretoria, South Africa, and was previously a professional dancer on the German version of Strictly, Let’s Dance. She also boasts various international Latin dance accolades, including third place in the World Cup Freestyle Latin in 2014.
