Oti shared the photos following her first day back at work preparing for the new series of BBC's The Greatest Dancer, where she works as a coach alongside Cheryl and Matthew Morrison. She has enjoyed a relaxing Christmas break after being crowned the winner of Strictly alongside Kelvin Fletcher in December, but has still been in touch with her co-stars. On Tuesday, Janette Manrara and Aljaz Skorjanec visited Oti and Marius at their home as they returned from their Christmas holiday in Slovenia, with the 29-year-old playing the perfect hostess and preparing a dinner of roast chicken, vegetables and roast potatoes for their guests.

The dancer posted a photo of her and former Emmerdale actor Kelvin together, smiling, with the Manhattan skyline (including the Statue of Liberty) visible in the background. She captioned the image: "Team Floti on @imaginecruising.
