She went on to tease that she’s trying to expand her horizons and do “as much as she can” while she’s still popular.

Oti added: “I moved all the way from Africa so I have to make something of myself, so I’m really trying to learn and do as much as I can for as long as I can while I can.”

Meanwhile, with Dancing On Ice being her first judging role, Oti has been getting tips from her sister, Motsi Mabuse.

Oti said: “Her advice to me was just to be myself and I think everyone from the BBC who congratulated me said the same thing. Just be yourself, be honest, say what you see and say what you feel.”

It was confirmed in December that Oti would be joining the Dancing On Ice judging panel, replacing John Barrowman.

Dancing On Ice starts at 6.30pm on Sunday, December 16th, on ITV.
