Oti Mabuse won Strictly Come Dancing alongside Emmerdale star Kevin Fletcher in 2019 to take home the Glitterball trophy. The dancer has been a part of the show since 2015 and even judged dance competition The Greatest Dancer with Oti’s duo Michael and Jowita winning the series. But what is known of her marriage away from the screen?

How did the Strictly star and husband Marius meet?

Oti has recently opened up on how she and Marius met during an interview.

The dancer spoke of how it was her sister Motsi that set Oti and her now-husband up.

She said: “When I said I wanted to become a professional dancer, Motsi suggested a few boys I could trial with as dance partners.

“Marius was the first and only try-out I had. I cancelled all the others. I was like, ‘This is the one.'”

She has also previously revealed he was her greatest love, and went on to explain how she and Marius first crossed paths.

Oti said: “When I switched from engineering to dancing, Marius was the first guy that I started dancing with.

“We competed together, ended up dating, and then we got engaged. We got married five years ago in Denmark in the countryside.

“We chose a country we thought would be special – I had never been.

“A few years later, my parents wanted us to have a wedding at home and we ended up having another in South Africa.”

Earlier this year the dancer spoke candidly of starting a family with Marius.

While talking to The Sun’s Fabulous Magazine she spoke of how she is currently prioritising her career.

She said: “One day we’ll probably wake up and be like, ‘It’s time!’

“At some point, I’ll want to give my nieces a few cousins, but it’s just not necessary at the moment.

“I was a baby for the past five years in this country and now I’m learning how to walk on my own.

“For now, I’m seeing how far I can take my career.”

Strictly Come Dancing will air tonight on BBC One at 7.50pm.
