Strictly Come Dancing 2020 professional dancer Oti Mabuse, 30, has revealed she let her former dance partner Kelvin Fletcher, 36, make the call on deciding what their final dance would be before winning the competition last year. The BBC sensation recalled how "hard" it was for her to choose their "favourite" dance, so left it in his capable hands.

Oti and Kelvin were crowned winners of Strictly last year after wowing the nation with their sizzling Samba.

On the night of the final, all couples were asked to perform their "favourite dance" before the results were announced.

Oti joined hosts Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly for the Strictly: The Best of The Final episode to look back at the dance Kelvin chose for them to perform before taking home the trophy.

Viewers first saw judge Bruno Tonioli introduce the couple's performance by announcing: "If I have to choose one couple's favourite dance, it would be Kelvin and Oti's Samba."

The clip saw Oti standing behind Kelvin before he started to raise his arms as she mirrored his movements.

The Strictly pro was wearing an orange sequin dress, while the soap star donned a tight blue shirt with black trousers.

After seeing a clip of herself and Kelvin, Oti went on to reveal what she said to her dance partner backstage.

She divulged: "I remember saying that I want you to pick a dance that when you dance, it's going to be the best feeling ever because you're never going to get those feelings again."
