Ex-Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse is absolutely glowing in her recent upload ahead of her new presenting gig for ITV.
The South African dancer wore a turquoise dress that hugged her figure, accessorised with silver earrings and a natural makeup look with fluffy false eyelashes.
She posted the picture ahead of her new role as presenter for Romeo and Duet, a new "musical matchmaking" series.
Head of Entertainment Commissioning at ITV Katie Rawcliffe complimented the dancer: “Romeo and Duet is a fun twist on the dating show format and Oti Mabuse is the perfect choice to host this entertaining cross between music and matchmaking.”
She wrote in the caption: “Hey gang. Tonight, tomorrow and Thursday I am in Salford hosting the first ever series of Romeo and Duet for ITV. We are filming at Dock 10. Come and see the show live in the studio, tickets are free.”
Oti signed off with: “She can’t wait to see you tonight!!! Or tomorrow, or Thursday.”
Loose Women panelist Judi Love left heart eyed emojis under the show-stopping snap.
One fan wrote: “You are stunning! This colour and your skin tone, perfection!”
“Totally love your hair,” complimented one follower, while another said: “Absolutely beautiful.”
The dancer, who has been on the judging panel for The Masked Singer and Dancing On Ice, recently spoke out about her experience of racial and fatphobic abuse during her time in the entertainment industry.
Oti, 31, began her career in both the German and British versions of Strictly Come Dancing but has said she received abuse throughout her career.
Mabuse used the negativity as fuel to continue her dancing career and to set an example to young girls, saying she wanted to show them that "anything is possible".
She told Radio Times: “I’ve never really spoken about it because I’ve tried for so long to think about it this way: I work on a show that 10 million people love, if 10 or 100 people aren’t nice to me, that is not representative of everyone else’s views.”
The dancing queen went on to say that even though receiving hate messages is upsetting, she takes comfort in the fact that they are written by someone who "can’t even face themselves in the mirror".
She continued to say that people still have "a lot to learn" and that she has to "fight and be strong" against the haters.
