Strictly: Oti Mabuse jokes about Bill Bailey’s ‘tea breaks’
Oti Mabuse and her dance partner comedian Bill Bailey have wowed judges throughout the 2020 series of Strictly Come Dancing as the show reaches the final of the competition. Away from the show Oti is married to fellow professional dancer husband Marius Iepure but what is known of their marriage?
How long have Oti and Marius been together?
Oti and husband Marius Iepure who is also a professional dancer have been married since 2014.
The pair tied the knot a year before Oti joined Strictly in 2015 where she danced with boxer Anthony Ogogo.
Oti has since opened up on how she and Marius first met, with the dancer admitting it was her sister Motsi that first introduced them.

She explained earlier this year: “When I said I wanted to become a professional dancer, Motsi suggested a few boys I could trial with as dance partners.
“Marius was the first and only try-out I had. I cancelled all the others. I was like, ‘This is the one.'”
In a separate interview, Oti spoke of how their relationship developed, adding: “We competed together, ended up dating, and then we got engaged.
“We got married five years ago in Denmark in the countryside.
“We chose a country we thought would be special – I had never been.
“A few years later, my parents wanted us to have a wedding at home and we ended up having another in South Africa.”
Oti regularly features Marius on her Instagram and in November the couple celebrated their sixth anniversary.
At the time she wrote: “6 years today and I love you more and more each time the sun rises.
