Oti Mabuse, 31, has spoken candidly about her time living with various Strictly professionals. The Strictly champion previously lived with Amy Dowden, 31, and flooded their flat due to her “irresponsible” behaviour.

You’re such a perfectionist and this is so irresponsible.

The Strictly professional is known for her perfectionist attitude, however she’s now admitted this is not what she is always like at home.

Talking to Kim Winston on Sunday’s Strictly Come Dancing: The Official Podcast, Oti revealed what she is like to live with.

While living with Amy, Oti landed herself in trouble when she was doing the washing up one day.

She said: “I once flooded the flat.

“I put the dishwasher liquid in the dishwashing machine.

“I was like ‘oh they’re not cleaning’, so I literally put the liquid in because I thought it would give them a bit of an extra shine.”

Oti added: “We went to the shop and came back to the whole apartment looking like a foam party!

“Amy was like ‘This is so you! You’re such a perfectionist and this is so irresponsible’.”

Amy is partnered with Tom Fletcher this year.

The two are, however, self isolating after Week 1 due to contracting COVID-19.

Oti, a Latin American champion, is the only Strictly professional to win Strictly Come Dancing for two consecutive years.

In 2019, for her fifth stint on the show, she was partnered with Emmerdale’s Kelvin Fletcher and lifted the Glitterball trophy with him.

The following year, Oti was partnered with comedian and actor Bill Bailey, who was also victorious.

Oti is the second pro to win the show twice, with Aliona Vilani winning series nine and 13.

This year, Oti was partnered with sports pundit, Ugo Monye.

The pair performed a joyful Samba, as the sportsman impressed most of the judges with his snake hips.

Ugo dedicated his performance to his late father, whose funeral was on the same day.

He said to Claudia Winkleman: “My dad passed away a couple of weeks ago of prostate cancer and we had his funeral this morning.

“During the funeral they spoke about today being a celebration and that’s exactly how today felt. There’s no better way of celebrating than by dancing.”

They were awarded 18 out of 40 from the judges for the performance.

You can watch Strictly Come Dancing on Saturdays at 7pm on BBC One.
