Oti Mabuse swerves Kelvin Fletcher drama on Graham Norton after Valentine's Day post
Oti Mabuse remained tight-lipped about the 3am nightcap she enjoyed with her Strictly partner Kelvin Fletcher as she starred on The Graham Norton Showby Irishmirror.ie
Strictly star Oti Mabuse ignored the rumours surrounding her and her dancing partner Kelvin Fletcher as she appeared on The Graham Norton Show.
The dancer focused the interview on the programme she's starring in, BBC's The Greatest Dancer, opting not to answer any questions about the rumours that have been swirling.
Oti looked stunning in an asymmetric one-shouldered gold jumpsuit with gold bangles and dark purple nail polish.
The episode, set to air tonight, sees Oti, who is married to Marius Lepure, sitting on the red couch alongside Justin Timberlake, Alan Carr, Anna Kendrick and Sam Smith.
Oti posted a stunning snap with Marius on Instagram today to mark Valentine's Day, the couple laughing as they held each other.
Throughout and beyond Kelvin Fletcher's winning stint on Strictly Come Dancing, he was plagued with 'curse' rumours and thanks to the natural chemistry with pro partner Oti.
The pair have insisted all along that they're nothing but good friends.
Today, on the most romantic day of the year, Kelvin cosied up to wife Liz for a stunning selfie.
He captioned it: "Happy Valentines @eliza_marsland."
It's now said that Strictly bosses are worried the professional dancer may quit the show after being left "devastated" by the rumours about him and Oti.
Despite insisting they're just friends, Oti, 29, is said to have been left gutted by rumours that there was something romantic going on between them.
Liz was reportedly left "fuming" after pictures emerged of Kelvin and Oti heading into a hotel at 3.35am, and later appeared in public without her wedding ring on.
However, pictures later came out of Liz kissing her husband at a train station and she insisted she had only removed her ring so she could get a fake tan.
And yesterday, Oti and Marius were picture lovingly beaming at each other as they arrived at a hotel in London.
But behind the scenes at Strictly, it's said that bosses are scared she'll quit the show after being surrounded by the rumours.
A source told The Sun: "Oti is a massive asset for the show. But at the moment she is very unhappy and upset at all the reports and has been left saying ‘do I really need all this BS?’
"She is married and has a lot of respect for Kelvin’s wife and wouldn’t carry on in this way.
"They are dance partners and friends and that’s it. Some people close to Oti are worried she will just eventually throw her hands up and pack it in."
