Oti Mabuse: Strictly pro in tears after World Cup win as she tells Kelvin ‘don’t be mad’
Oti Mabuse shared a video with her 309,000 Instagram followers this morning following the Rugby World Cup 2019 final. The professional dancer was seen celebrating around the Strictly Come Dancing studio on her own after South Africa won against England.
Everybody’s English here, so nobody’s celebrating with me
The 29-year-old was filmed alongside her dance partner Kelvin Fletcher, who threatened to turn off the television as the SA team were given their medals.
The dancer, who was born in Pretoria, South Africa, couldn’t hide her jubilation after her team managed to score 32 points to their rival’s 12.
Her clip saw her chanting in the wings of the programme, while the sparkly set could be seen behind her as well as a screen showing the game.
“Everybody’s English here, so nobody’s celebrating with me,” she told her fans, as it was impossible to miss she was the only one feeling happy.

“Where’s Johannes [Radebe]?” one companion asked her, mentioning her fellow South African pro on the hit show.
“I don’t know,” she answered, not letting it dampen her mood. “Yes! We are world champs! Wow!”
“Anyone got the remote so I can turn it over?” actor Kelvin, 35, quipped, after seeing England lose.
Laughing, Oti told him: “Don’t be mad! Don’t be blue,” before the focus undoubtedly moved to their Viennese Waltz, which they will perform tonight.
The star also tweeted her 110,000 followers: “SOUTH AFRICA!!!!!! We love you and we are world champs… Sounds the call to come together and United we shall stand…”
