It follows her exit from Strictly Come Dancing.

Fans were saddened when the news was confirmed that Oti would not be returning to the Strictly dancefloor after many successful years.

However, they needn't have worried about not being able to watch her dance, as viewers were treated to a performance by Oti and her husband Marius Lepure.

Oti choreographed the dance with Olympic champion skaters Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.

The routine was adapted from her upcoming dance show, called 'I Am Here'.

It is due to start in April this year.


The former Strictly star performed her routine on a podium with other dancers, as professional skaters took to the ice.

She shared her happiness on Instagram after the performance: "What a dream this has been to perform on ice and work with Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean but also how incredible the skaters are as well as my girl crew.'

Oti went on to thank her husband, and the cast and crew backstage.

Fans loved the dance and were thrilled to see Oti doing what she does best: "What an experience!! Thank you so much".


Another added: "The best experience ever!! Forever grateful, bring on the tour."

A third fan agreed: "Was a great show, lovely to see you dance with hubby,"

The show, 'I Am Here' is her first ever UK tour.

Oti will be taking the show around the UK from April 28 in Cardiff, ending in London in July.


Her show is described as a "whirlwind celebration of the influences and inspirations" from growing up in South Africa. 

Oti's confirmed her departure from Strictly last week: "I have been part of the most amazing TV show, Strictly Come Dancing for the past seven years and it has been an incredible time.

She added: "Lifting the Glitterball twice and having the best journey with all my celebrities, but also meeting and working with the best team, crew, producers, celebs and professional dancers! You are my family and I adore you all forever."

She continued: "I’m honestly so grateful to the BBC and will always remember that Strictly and the BBC brought me to the UK - which I now call home and I have learnt and grown so much. Thank You from the bottom of my heartI can’t put into words how difficult this decision has been, but I have decided not to return for the next series.
