Former Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse has given a rare insight into her marriage with dance professional Marius Lepure. In a new interview, the Dancing on Ice judge, 31, reflected on her marriage to the Romanian dance star, who she married when she was just 23-years-old.

He’s taught me how to be patient and caring

Speaking about their eight year marriage, Oti gushed over her spouse.

Talking about getting married at an early age, Oti said: “Honestly, I do feel like I was a baby, but being married to this beautiful man, I’ve learned so much.

“He’s taught me how to be patient and caring.”

She went on to add that upon reflection, she got married at the “perfect time”.

Oti explained: “And there’s nothing about that which makes me think I was too young. It happened at the perfect time.”

The couple met in 2012 when Marius auditioned to be the star’s dance partner in Germany on the show, Let’s Dance.

Marius was the first person to try out and sparks flew between the two immediately, causing Oti to cancel all other auditions.

The duo starred together on the German equivalent of Strictly, where their relationship continued to grow.

Oti went on to praise her beau for understanding her and her mentality.

Speaking about Marius, she said: “My husband is the most relaxed human being on earth, and he calms the crazy in me.

“He understands my mentality. He understands the competitive side and pushes me, but he knows the real me at home, too,” she added to The Sun.

Oti also spoke out about whether the couple want to start a family, revealing that it’s not something that’s on the cards for her and Marius anytime soon.

The dance professional told of her dream to host her own show, adding that she still has a lot more she wants to accomplish in her career before starting a family.

Marius also starred on Strictly in group numbers in 2017.

However, he never landed a pro dancer role on the programme.

Despite no longer competing on a professional level, he still teaches dance.

Oti rose to fame in the UK after her stint as a professional on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.

She won the show for two consecutive years in 2019 with Kelvin Fletcher and in 2020 with Bill Bailey.

Now, she is a brand new judge on Dancing on Ice this year, replacing former judge John Barrowman on the panel.

Dancing On Ice continues this Sunday at 6:30pm on ITV.
