Oti Mabuse, 30 has admitted she had to make a last-minute wardrobe change today, after the shirt, she put on today to appear on Steph’s Packed Lunch “didn’t fit”. Thankfully for the Strictly Come Dancing professional, her co-star Anton Du Beke, 54, was able to step in and rescue her from the fashion nightmare, by lending her his own spare shirt.

Lockdown has been tough on me

Steph McGovern, who hosts the show, could not resist bringing up the hilarious incident live on the programme.

She began: “Oti where did you get that lovely shirt from?”

Anton laughed: “It’s a lovely shirt.”

Oti appearing bashful, replied: “So let me explain right, so lockdown has definitely been tough on me, so I put on a little bit of weight.

“I put on a shirt today, it didn’t fit. There was a struggle going on here,” as she pointed towards her cleavage.

“So then I said, ‘Anton, do you have an extra shirt?’ And he says, ‘I do my lovely’.

“And here we are. I’m dressed as Mrs Anton Du Beke. We are dressed the same.”

Anton sweetly reassured her: “You look lovely”

Oti began working as a host on Steph’s Packed Lunch last year, and has been a huge success with viewers at home, who tune in week after week to watch the show.

The Strictly Come Dancing professional has divulged how after the show stops taping, she stays behind with her co-host Steph, who takes time to coach her and develop her presenting skills.

Opening up on TV presenters she admires, Oti shared: “I work a lot with Steph McGovern, doing Steph’s Packed Lunch live.

“After every show, the whole crew stays for 15 minutes so I can run the show as Steph. She gives me cues — how to read certain things, how I speak, how to pronounce and enunciate words,” she added.

Oti will be swapping the dance floor for the judging panel this year for the new ITV series The Masked Dancer, which begins this weekend.

However, she is yet to confirm any further presenting commitments or a move away from Strictly despite mounting speculation due to her other work commitments outside the show.

She continued: “Also, Gethin Jones on Morning Live. Those two are the people that have motivated and actually helped me.

“I look up to Holly Willoughby and Davina because she’s so natural. And Zoe Ball,” she added to The Metro.

Oti has been appearing on Steph’s Packed Lunch frequently, as well as Morning Live to assist with the Strictly Fitness segment.

Steph’s Packed Lunch airs every weekday live from Leeds and sees Steph interviewing celebrity guests while also discussing headlines and sampling cuisine from TV chefs.

Oti has been confirmed to be a part of the Strictly line-up this year after winning the competition for two years in a row.

She admitted to The Telegraph: “I love to dance and also I love bringing joy to so many people. But I think that will be the last one.”
