Oti Mabuse, 31, has taken to Instagram to share an emotional moment with fans. The South African dancer explained how she was able to go home after such a long time to greet her family.

Oti said that her family were delighted to see her and many of them couldn’t hold back tears.

She included a video showing the moment she hugged her godmother and other members of her family.

The video was posted to Oti’s 636,000 followers.

She said: 

“FINALLY AFTER YEARS I WAS ABLE TO GO HOME TO SOUTH AFRICA

“Decided to surprise my family and not tell them I’m coming home just to see their expressions, mom was speechless (touched me all to see if I was real, dad couldn’t stop smiling and my god mother cried her eyes off).

“To say I was emotional is an absolute understatement I have been waiting 3-4 years to hold my moms, dad, sister, nieces and nephews in my arms and just spend time with them NOT through a screen

“I rarely share family events but this felt really special to me and I know so many others are in my position and were buzzing when RSA was taken off of the red list.

“Covid has really taught me how much family is above all and should never be taken for granted

“Please excuse the coming photo dumps that will be flying your way.”

Fans were very quick to jump on to the comments to express their happiness at Oti’s reunion with her family.

Her celebrity friends and fellow Strictly contestants were among the first to offer their messages.

Giovanni Pernice said: “Happy for you babe!!!”

Richie Driss wrote: “NAH STOP THAT.”

Pasquale La Rocca penned: “This is so beautiful and precious.”
