Oti had been gifted some hot sauce by her fellow professional dancer, and thought it could be the perfect cure for her cold.

However, the remedy proved to be a little too much for Oti, who took to her Instagram Stories to explain the disastrous results.

Nancy later responded to Oti's videos, adding a crying with laughter sticker on the first post, before revealing her secret ingredient in a second.

"Is chili, chili and chili, chachacha," the dancer responded.

Oti has been a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing since 2015, and is the only professional to have won back-to-back series, winning with Kelvin Fletcher and Bill Bailey.

Nancy joined the show in 2019, but has only been paired with a celebrity during the 2019 Children in Need special, in which she danced with EastEnders star Rudolph Walker.

However, Oti recently shocked the Strictly fanbase when she appeared to hint that the 2021 series could be her last on the show.

But she later clarified her comments on Steph's Packed Lunch saying that she "didn't explain herself" properly.

"So I'm going to be that same dancer for 55 years, still on Strictly being asked the same question," she confirmed.

Oti admitted that when it comes to her position on Strictly she takes it "one year at a time".
