New Judge Announcement

After months of speculation, the new Strictly Come Dancing judge has been announced as Motsi Mabuse.

South African Motsi is a former competitive dancer, and has lots of Strictly-related experience too. She appeared as a pro on two series of Let's Dance, the German version of the show, and has been a judge on the show since 2011.

And, of course, she is the sister of Oti.

Oti appeared on Let's Dance herself, so is no stranger to being judged on air by her sister. I can't wait to see their dynamic on air.

Oti is so beloved among Strictly fans, and if Motsi is anything like her I'm sure she'll be a great addition to the panel. 

I'm relieved that they chose a woman, as I like the gender balance on the panel in recent years. I'm also glad that they chose someone virtually unknown to Strictly fans. This worked well when Shirley joined.
