“It was really only close friends and the Strictly pros who had seen me like this.”
Last year’s champ was delighted to be back in rehearsals this week, with filming hit by Covid.She told Red magazine: “We’ll have to be flexible.”
That should be no problem for Oti, who is in Red’s October issue out today.
Last month we revealed Strictly's pro dancers face a six-week lockdown before the show even starts. They will be cut off from family and friends until early September. Stars including last year’s champion Oti Mabuse will then have to form bubbles with their celeb partners.
The measures have been signed off by BBC bosses to protect the flagship programme from Covid-19.
A show insider said: “These are unprecedented times. The crew and dancers are still reeling at being told how extreme the measures have to be. They’ve left one lockdown for another.
“They’ve got girlfriends, boyfriends, wives, husbands, children and pets — it’s not going to be easy being separated for that length of time. Nevertheless, they love the show and are determined to bring it back to our screens.”
