In the entertainment industry, cosmetic surgery is common with boob jobs being one of the most popular choices. Has Oti Mabuse gone under the knife?

Oti Mabuse is best known as one of The Greatest Dancer judges as well as a Strictly Come Dancing professional. Unlike many of her colleagues, the 30-year-old didn’t always dream of becoming a dancer – she studied civil engineering at university before opting for a more creative career.

Oti’s job requires her to be in tip-top shape and her enviable figure doesn’t come easily. However, the Strictly star has previously spoken of hang-ups about her body and even considered surgery.

Oti Mabuse on Strictly 2020

Oti burst onto the Strictly Come Dancing scene in 2015 with her first dance partner being boxer Anthony Ogogo. Since then, she’s partnered with many celebrities including Graeme Swann, Jonnie Peacock and Danny Mac. In 2019, she won the show with actor Kelvin Fletcher.

Series 18 of the BBC show sees Oti partnered with comedian, musician and actor Bill Bailey.

Has Oti had a breast reduction?

As most dancers do, Oti has a great physique. However, she has previously spoken publicly about how she had considered getting a breast reduction.

Speaking to Fabulous Magazine in 2020, the dancer said: “I did once think about a reduction because big boobs or even wearing the wrong bra would cause me backache, neck strains and lower back problems.

However, it’s reported that Oti didn’t opt for the surgery because of the pain and the fact that she’d have to take six weeks off work to recover.

She said that when she first joined Strictly, she wasn’t totally comfortable and compared her body to the other dancers. As reported by The Mirror, Oti said: “Strictly opened a lot of doors to me. I remember fitting my first bra and I was crying… I was like ‘This looks so bad and I look so massive compared to the other girls’.”

Oti may have now embraced her 28GG breasts. She added that nobody on the show picked on her because of her body which may have helped her confidence grow. She’s shared comedic posts to Instagram in 2020, so with any luck, her hang-ups are a thing of the past.

Oti Mabuse: Tour

By the looks of things, Oti has got a lot going on in her life in 2020. The Strictly Come Dancing star has announced that her solo dance tour, “I Am Here“, will hit UK theatres in April 2021.

As well as planning and training for her tour, Oti is the face of Women’s Health Magazine‘s December issue. The dance pro spoke to the magazine about her morning routine which involves waking up at 3 am!

Speaking to Women’s Health, Oti also added that she often eats porridge and fruit or eggs and salad for breakfast. The Strictly Come Dancing star revealed that she’d lost a dress size in 2020 before appearing on Channel 4 show Steph’s Packed Lunch.
