Oti has, of course, done plenty of TV work during her time on Strictly, including judging shows including The Masked Dancer and Dancing on Ice. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to see what she gets up to next!

Oti announced that she is leaving Strictly 

Craig Revel Horwood chatted about her exit on Tuesday on This Morning, saying: "That's fantastic. I think this is brilliant news. I mean she's becoming a huge star in her own right. I think that is the way to treat the business. There's only so long you can actually spend in one show.

"You just don't want to do the same role for seven years. I think it's the best move that she'll ever make."
