Strictly’s Oti Mabuse hauls in husband Marius to help promote her London Coliseum show next year


STRICTLY star Oti Mabuse hauls in husband Marius Lepure to help promote a big show next year.

The playful pro dancers posed on the roof of the London Coliseum.

Strictly pro champ Oti, 29, announced a special gala performance at the venue to round off her 2021 I AM HERE UK Tour.

Marius, 37, has been in some of the BBC1 show’s group dances but is yet to partner a celebrity.

He ruled that out this year saying he’ll be tied up opening a dance studio.

Yesterday 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.”

Dancers and crew will be at a central London hotel for four weeks from next month to rehearse group dances.

They will be bussed to and from the studios in Elstree, Herts, to record routines.

The group will then have to isolate at home for another two weeks before meeting up with their celebrities.

The source added: “The lockdown only affects people that need to be within two metres of each other.

“They’ll be constantly tested — that goes without saying.”
