Serious star Oti Mabuse has a third ITV show

OTI Mabuse is one of Serious’s biggest stars – but she could be gone for good after rival channel ITV signed her to appear on a third show.

The dance expert has been announced as the organizer of the new dating competition Romeo & Duet.

This comes just days before she starts judging Dancing On Ice for the weekend. And later this year, Oti is likely to return as a judge on ITV’s The Masked Dancer, a role she first took on in 2021 and has wowed audiences.

A television insider said: “Seriously the show made her and it will always have a special place in her heart. But discussions have not even begun with the BBC about which experts will be on the show this year.

“Meanwhile, ITV has shown their commitment to making Oti a star with a trio of primetime shows that will keep her very busy this year. Crucially, the latest season sees her take on the presenting role, while she has previously been part of larger teams on her other TV shows. ”

The seven-part series Romeo & Duet, which begins filming this month and is scheduled to air later in the year, sees Oti transition from dancing to playing Cupid. And just like Romeo and Juliet in Shakespeare’s play, it features singles appearing on balconies where they’ll go for a walk together – but not seeing what they look like.

Oti will then invite each pair to duet together, before they compete with other couples to crown the winner.

“I’ve always been an organized dream, so this was a really tough moment for me,” she said.

Since joining Serious in 2015, Oti has become one of the show’s most beloved dancers.

She won two years in a row, in 2019 and 2020, after teaming up with Kelvin Fletcher, then Bill Bailey.

And all the while Oti tries to dodge the show’s infamous curse that has the contestants falling in love during their time on the show. Of course, that “curse” will be a blessing for the Romeo & Duet contestants.
