Strictly Oti Mabuses family in chaos as Englands Euros win sparks tension
Strictly professional Oti Mabuse, 30, was thrilled to see England win but revealed her family have been split since the result because of their different nationalities.
When asked by Steph McGovern, 38, on her Daytime TV show how she felt about the game Oti said, "Everything is just chaos."
Oti is married to Marius Lapure, a German professional dancer. Oti's sister, Motsi Mabuse – a judge of Strictly Come Dancing – currently resides in Germany and has done for the past 20 years.
As a result, it was no surprise when Oti said her family was split after the game.
She said, "My mum was France, and she’s upset, she’s not talking to us anymore because France is out."
The Strictly star added, "My sister’s like 'I’m deleting all my social media', Germany is out."
Oti's brother-in-law is Ukrainian, so it was a tense night for all the family.
The close family kept in contact with each other throughout the game over their "Massive" family WhatsApp group.
Oti didn't seem to mind the other teams losing. She said, "There is like a spirit in the air when we’re all just so happy."
Despite her family chaos, Oti said, "I’m the only one going like 'we won!'"
Oti posted a video on her Instagram story of her watching the game.
Wearing a tartan hat, Oti was singing loudly to the camera and cheering on England.
She captioned the post, "Can't celebrate as I'm alone on this team. Listen to the silence in the room."
The Masked Dancer judge said she could hear the cheering from Wembley stadium from her home.
"It's glorious" she added.
She also reposted Luke Kempner's video of him popping open a bottle of Moet and Chandon champagne and drinking it straight out of the bottle.
Oti wrote, "@lukekempner has set the mood and we allow it – it's allowed."
She added, "Well done England! It's coming home."
Oti's career has moved onto new heights since her most recent Strictly win with her partner, Bill Bailey.
She joked on Steph's Packed Lunch that she's eyeing up new roles such as judging or presenting.
Steph's Packed Lunch airs weekdays at 12.30pm on Channel 4.
