Strictly Come Dancing 2019

[ Edited ]

A little early to start this thread, although the new judge to replace Darcey Bussell has been announced

It's Motsi Mabuse (sister of Oti Mabusi)

 

Motsi Mabuse, elder sister of Strictly Come Dancing star Oti, has been named as Dame Darcey Bussell's replacement on the BBC One show's judging panel.

Originally from South Africa, Motsi is a former South African champion and German Latin champion and a judge on Strictly Come Dancing's German version.

Mabuse, 38, said she was "absolutely overjoyed" to be joining the panel and hoped to "add her own bit of sparkle".

I don't doubt her credentials at all but can't help wondering how this will work as Oti is still appearing on the show?

Never heard of either of them if I'm honest.

Re: Strictly Come Dancing 2019

Yes, will be very tricky @Cleoriff, particularly if she gives honest criticism of her sister. And don't they look very much alike. 

 

I'd never heard of Oti before Strictly but she's now my favourite dancer. Curious to see what her sister will be like as a judge. Can't wait for the new season to start, one because I love the show and, two, hopefully it'll be cooler by then. Also interested to see what 'stars' they have this time round. Hopefully some I actually know, would make a nice change.

Re: Strictly Come Dancing 2019

Well from what it said, Motsi won't be giving her sister Oti any special treatment, ooh no!!

 

In fact, sounds like she may go all the other way and mark her down, just to prove she's even handed!
