Strictly Come Dancing star Kelvin Fletcher put some time away from training to play a prank on his dance partner Oti Mabuse - much to the delight of their fans! Earlier this week, during one of their training sessions, the former Emmerdale star snuck up behind Oti, who was completely unaware of his presence and engrossed in her phone. "Arghhhh," she screamed in the video, which Kelvin had filmed on his phone.

Despite giving her the fright of her life, Kelvin could be heard laughing behind the camera lens. This weekend, Oti and Kelvin will be back on the ballroom dancefloor with an American Smooth to the song Gaston from Beauty and the Beast.

He added: "I've missed a friend’s wedding recently and that's kind of what's tough, but like any gig, for me especially, I've just got to let myself be totally immersed in it and give my best and I've loved it. It's been an amazing experience that I don't want to end anytime soon."
