The Strictly Come Dancing judge has admitted she didn’t speak to her colleague Bruno Tonioli for months despite texting him several times. But it was all a complete misunderstanding as Motsi Mabue was texting the wrong number.

Motsi, 41, explained: “I’ve spoken to Bruno.

“We’re going to meet up in December when he’s back from LA. I miss him so much.

“The funny thing was, I was texting him on the wrong number.”

The judge revealed they reconnected over Twitter when Bruno messaged her and she found out her mistake.

“He messaged me on Twitter and I was like ‘Bruno, I’ve been writing to you for months,’” she laughed.

“I was thinking ‘Why is he not replying? Why’s he rejecting me?’

“And now we’ve reconnected. He’s so much fun. I like him because he makes me feel normal.”

Motsi added to Fabulous: “It’s like ‘You think I’m crazy? Wait, here comes Bruno!’”

The Strictly star will be back on television screens on Friday, September 23 for the launch of the 2022 series.

She’ll be sitting alongside Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Anton Du Beke to judge the latest group of celebrity contestants.

This is the first year since she joined the judging panel in 2019 she won’t be judging her sister Oti, 32.

Speaking of working on the BBC show without Oti, she said: “I’ll be sad not to see her on Strictly this year.’

“I’ll always worry about my sister, but I have to respect her decision and let her go.”

Motsi added to Prima: “She’s proven that she can more than protect herself and push herself to new heights.”

She’s prepared to continue flying the flag for the Mabuse family on the entertainment show for as long as she can.

“Meanwhile, I’ll continue to fly the Mabuse flag on Strictly for as long as they want,” she confirmed.

This year, four new professionals have joined the cast following the exit of Oti and Aljaž Škorjanec.

European cup winner Vito Coppola, Chinese National Champion Carlos Gu, former Under 21 British National Champion Lauren Oakley and Latin dance champion Michelle Tsiakkas will all join the show.

They join the professional dancers already revealed for the upcoming series including Dianne Buswell, Nadiya Bychkova, Graziano Di Prima, Amy Dowden, Karen Hauer, Katya Jones, Neil Jones, Nikita Kuzmin, Cameron Lombard, Gorka Marquez, Luba Mushtuk, Giovanni Pernice, Jowita Przystal, Johannes Radebe, Kai Widdrington and Nancy Xu.

Strictly Come Dancing begins Friday on BBC One at 7pm.
