Following her triumphant win on this year's Strictly Come Dancing, Oti Mabuse paid a surprise visit to her second celebrity dance partner - Danny Mac! Delighting their fans, the professional dancer shared a cute collage of the two together. "We meet, we dance, we grow and we celebrate... so lovely seeing you @dannymaconline and I’m mega mega mega proud of you," she wrote in the caption on Tuesday. Having watched his performance in the musical White Christmas, Oti added: "@whitexmasshow is a brilliant night out on Christmas Eve eve #friends #strictly #teamdoti."

Fans of the pair immediately rushed to post lovely messages over their mini-reunion, with one writing: "Still my absolute favourites!!" Another remarked: "Strictly legends! Would genuinely pay to see you dance together again." A third post read: "My all-time favourite Strictly pair. #TeamDoti for life." The former pair were partnered together back in 2016, when they reached the final. Unfortunately for then, they lost to Ore Oduba and Joanne Clifton. Some followers believed they were robbed, with one saying: "I'm still outraged you two didn’t win! Your misty blue, American smooth is still the best dance I've ever seen! Goosebumps every time! Xx." Another fan said: "My winners from 2016."
