Oti Mabuse has made a very cheeky jibe at her former Strictly Come Dancing co-star Brendan Cole ahead of the new series of ITV’s Dancing On Ice.

She is best known for being a favourite judge on the BBC talent show, but after securing a spot on the Dancing On Ice panel, she is set to see professional dancer Brendan, 43, make his debut as a skater with Vanessa Bauer.

The new series, which starts this Sunday, will include Oti on the judging panel alongside Jayne Torvill, Christopher Dean and Ashley Banjo.

And the South African star has shared her thoughts on how she thinks Brendan will do in the competition.

Oti savagely joked: “Brendan was always the one who would get on skates, who would jump over a car or jump off a table, so I think he will take it as an exciting challenge. He was always falling on Strictly – and that wasn’t even on ice!”

It appears she made reference to the fact he fell for the Strictly curse in 2004, when he left his dancer fiancée Camilla Dallerup for Natasha Kaplinsky.

On what sort of judge she will be like on Dancing On Ice, Oti described herself as “strict but honest”.

The TV judge also added she is excited to get dressed up for the show every Sunday, as she is able to wear glamorous dresses.

Oti said: “I feel like Cinderella for the day. I never get to wear big frocks any more. I mean, you only get married once. Now on Dancing On Ice, I get to play dress-up every Sunday.”

Meanwhile, she has been forced to tap-dance around questions about her future as it appears her Strictly days are over.

Asked if she was returning to Strictly Oti said: “For me I’m just really excited to be here on Dancing On Ice working and doing what I love.

“You know how I am, I work by the rules and there will be an announcement made. I can’t give a tease because I will be in trouble.”

In another interview she later added: “I think for me as a person in entertainment I really want to learn and grow. I want a long career.”
