Strictly star Oti Mabuse sparked a sweet fan reaction at the weekend when she shared a carousel of glamorous baby bump snapshots.

The judge, who is set to become a first-time parent, took to Instagram where she uploaded two side-profile photos giving centre stage to her blossoming bump.

In the first image, Oti, 33, was pictured rocking an off-the-shoulder hot pink maxi dress which she teamed with a pair of towering white stilettos. In the second image, meanwhile, Oti exuded sophistication as she posed for a mirror selfie in a luxe, midnight blue velvet mini dress.

The talent show judge was positively glowing as she tenderly cradled her growing bump in all its glory.

The former two-time champion revealed her joyous baby news back in August.

We feel finally ready and excited to share our wonderful news.

"This is new for us scarier than swimming with sharks, jumping off cliffs or even swinging from bridges but the best news we could have ever asked for."

She went on to say: "We love our little bundle of joy so much already… and can't wait to see what our future will now look like as family of 3 plus Leo it's been a beautiful journey so far with close friends and family and nearly over but we have learnt a lot along the way… Christmas is about to get even louder #babyontheway #firstborn #bundleofjoy."

Oti maintains that the success of their marriage is in part down to their incredible friendship.
