Who is Motsi Mabuse's husband? 

Motsi is married to fellow dancer, Evgenij Voznyuk, who is from Ukraine. The pair tied the knot in an intimate legal ceremony in 2017 before celebrating with a larger wedding in Majorca. 

The couple share one child, a three-year-old daughter whose name has never been publicly revealed. The family live in Germany, where Motis and Evgenij run a dance school together.

She told Germany's BILD der Frau: "Family always comes first. 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."

On how she is raising her daughter, the dancer said: "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."

While speaking to The Sunday Mirror magazine Notebook back in September, Motsi was asked if she would ever consider relocating to the UK with her family. "I would but let's see what the future holds," she said. 

"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."

The Great Celebrity Bake Off - Stand Up To Cancer airs at 8pm on Channel 4 on Tuesday 12 April.
