Motsi Mabuse very rarely talks about her home life – preferring to keep her husband and their daughter together out of the spotlight.

Back in September, in a candid chat with The Sunday Mirror magazine Notebook, Motsi was asked if a UK move would ever be on the cards.

She replied: "I would but let's see what the future holds. I know the UK's going through its own thing and there's a lot of heavy problems here but the number of people of my colour is much more than in Germany.

"My daughter's the only black child in her kindergarden class and I don't want it to be that way forever."

Just last week, Motsi spoke further about her family with Germany's BILD der Frau. "Family always comes first," she told the publication. "Everything else is organised around it. Honestly, what remains when everything is taken away from me? My family, of course, my husband and our sweet daughter."

Asked how she is raising her daughter, Motsi replied: "Lovingly. She gets attention, we talk a lot. And I'm proud that she can express herself and name her emotions. A lot of adults can't do that."
