The 28-year-old professional dancer opened up on working with Cheryl, 35, during an interview on Lorraine earlier this week. Oti Mabuse admitted she had been “nervous” when she first met the ex-Girls Aloud star. “Because I don’t know her and she doesn’t know me,” she explained. “I said to myself, if I respect her then she will probably respect me.
“From the first sentence, we just mixed, we just gelled,” Oti continued.
“Last night, we were talking until midnight. We were literally just texting until midnight.”
“Do you think you’ve got a pal?” host Lorraine Kelly, 59, asked.
“Yes, yes and it’s nice to get to know her and get to know her funny side, her humorous side,” Oti replied, smiling.
“And she’s always looking at my bum,” she laughed. “I’m always looking at her abs.
“It’s really nice. We talk about shoes and stuff like that — family and life.
