Oti shared the clip - in which fellow guest Ricky Gervais could be seen agreeing with her remark - on Instagram on Tuesday, and her sister Motsi was quick to react.

"Lol, can I just say though, as unbelievable as it sounds, I am the quiet one," wrote Motsi in her Stories, to which Oti replied: "Until you are not!!!"

Despite the cheeky comments, the 31-year-old DOI judge had plenty of nice things to say about her 40-year-old sister.


The dancer has revealed her sister gave her tips ahead of her new role

"It's not [weird], because I think we have a relationship and that respect. She is the older one, and in African culture you listen to your eldest and you listen to your older sister.

"I appreciate it because she's so professional at what she does that she only talks about my celebs and I take all of them very seriously and I work on them, especially with someone like Bill [Bailey], we were like, 'We have to listen to the judges, we have to get better, we have to push ourselves.'"

She added: "And I love what she does, she's a great asset to the show."
