The couple also addressed rumours that Marius is set to join the dancing show as a full-time professional dancer this year.
Previously, Marius has featured in some of the show's group dances but has never been a full-time pro partnered with a celebrity.
When asked if he was planning to take on a full-time role at Strictly this year, Marius said: "That’s very flattering, because every year I hear about those rumours.
"We’re opening a dance studio in September, so I don’t think I will have too much time for that. But it’s amazing. I did the live arena tour and it was really, really brilliant. So I will always try to be on Strictly, but [I'm] not really having time for that.”
As well as opening a dance studio later this year, Marius is set to join Oti on her first solo tour I Am Here in 2021.
Speaking about the tour, Oti told Christine: "The tour is me telling my story about how I came from South Africa to Germany, to meeting this lovely man, to the United Kingdom. It’s really exciting because this is my first ever tour and I get to express myself through the love of dance. Tickets are on sale already… It means so much to be able to travel across the country with my husband and dance."
Marius added: "Our relationship on stage is pretty similar - we are actually perfectionists in what we do, so I think it works quite well."
Lorraine is on ITV weekdays from 9am.
