Captioning a photo of herself, Oti wrote: "Finally found a morning ritual that I love and can stick to. @downdogapp has made a difference to my mornings, with great yoga, Barr exercises that are challenging and exciting to try."

She added: "Ashtanga is my favourite. Thank you @jesskhanlee introducing it to me, next year this time I'll be levitating like a boss."

The pro dancer then shared a cute snap of her and Marius, revealing he too has taken on his wife's new routine.

Oti continued: "And I love to do it with my partner in crime. Every day we try to do something that centres (us) together as a team," before jokily poking fun at her soppy post, adding: "PS: @jesskhanlee I know, it's a couple post. EUW. Hate those."

Oti will soon have less free time on her hands as she gears up to return to the Strictly dancefloor. Before that though, she'll get to reminisce about her 2019 win with Kelvin Fletcher.
