Oti Mabuse has shared a clip of herself celebrating with new Strictly professional dancer Jowita Przystal on Instagram.

The Strictly champion - who has the last consecutive shows with Kelvin Fletcher and Bill Bailey respectively - posted a video in which she and Jowita can be seen singing and dancing excitedly to Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'".

They were also joined by Oti's very cute dog Leo, and Jowita's co-winning partner of 2020's series of The Greatest Dancer Michael Danilczuk.

She recently said of her new role: "This is my biggest dream come true. No words can describe how I feel right now. I'm still pinching myself to check if this is real but I am beyond excited to be joining the Strictly Come Dancing family and I can't wait to give all of my heart and soul on that dance floor!"

The announcement was made after Anton Du Beke and Janette Manrara left the pro-dancer line-up to take on different roles on the show. Anton is taking over from Bruno Tonioli on the judging panel, while Janette is joining Rylan Clark to co-host BBC Two's sister show It Takes Two. 

Joining Oti and Jowita in the 2021 line-up include returning dancers Aljaž Škorjanec, Amy Dowden, Anton Du Beke, Dianne Buswell, Giovanni Pernice, Gorka Marquez, Graziano Di Prima, Janette Manrara, Johannes Radebe, Karen Hauer, Katya Jones, Luba Mushtuk, Nadiya Bychkova, Nancy Xu, and Neil Jones.

Strictly Come Dancing airs on BBC One. It's due to return later in 2021.
