Oti Mabuse opens up about body insecurities after 'really scary' Strictly exit
Strictly star Oti Mabuse announced her departure from the show earlier this year but has since admitted the transition was so "scary" that she questioned whether she could handle leaving it behind.The 32-year-old, who left her birthplace South Africa aged 16 to pursue a career in dance, was daunted about the prospect of turning away from the hit show that had first given her fame in the UK."I’ve been under this incredible umbrella for seven years, where people know on Saturday night you bring them joy, and you make them smile," she mused."When a lot of things in your business are based off that [feeling], it was really, really scary [to leave]."I was asking myself, ‘Am I ready? Am I fit enough to do this? Can I handle it?'" the ballroom star agonised.However she concluded in a new interview with Women's Health UK magazine that she has always been up for a "challenge".However, Oti had previously explained that she'd been keen to leave the show while it was still at its "peak".She'd also confided in Women's Health UK that she had insecurities about her changing metabolism, admitting that it had become increasingly difficult for her to "burn [fat] as fast as [I] used to"."Oh my gosh, what is this? Is this turning 30?!" she exclaimed, before adding: "My body has completely taken on a new shape [since] two, three years ago."Meanwhile, having already hit the main target that she arrived in the UK to achieve - winning Strictly - she decided it was time for new projects.That meant leaving the show behind, despite her sister Motsi still returning as a judge without her, and trying her hand at a Dancing On Ice judging role instead.Oti has appeared on Celebrity Gogglebox and The Masked Dancer too, while her husband Marius Iepure,

Nadia Sawalha 'very sure' she would never do Strictly after Kaye Adams' 'intense' stint
Kaye Adams', 59, brief stint on the BBC dancing show Strictly Come Dancing, Nadia Sawalha, 57, said that she will never take part in the series, despite always being the first to the dance floor at a party. Kaye was sadly the first contestant to leave the competition after dancing live to the nation for just two weeks in a row, but Nadia said the thing that puts her off is trying to remember all the steps.Supporting her friend from the live studio audience, Nadia and fellow Loose Women panellist Jane Moore also grilled Kaye about what the rehearsal schedule behind the scenes was really like.For someone like Kaye who had “never danced one step,” taking the plunge and doing Strictly was terrifying, and soon Nadia realised just how much hard work goes into not only learning a dance routine, but remembering it.Nadia shared with Express.co.uk: “Me, Jane and her went out to dinner the other night and we were just you know, getting every detail from her.“And oh my god, it's so hard, she was showing us some little videos of her rehearsing.“It is so hard! I wouldn’t be able to remember anything!”Surprised at just how demanding the show is, Nadia, who partook in Dancing On Ice back in 2011, said that she would never take part in Strictly.She went on to say: “It has made me very sure that I don’t want to do it.“I wouldn’t be able to remember anything.“All the 25 years we've known each other, everyone would have thought it would be me to go on it [Strictly], because I'm always the first to dance floor at any party or dance the whole night.

I was awful."Various critics had said, 'She'll be OK with the fluffy fashion pieces but how will she do a serious political interview?' And they were right...

Dancing on Ice saved her skiing career.Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, the sportswoman, 39, revealed that she used the opportunity to appear on the show as "self-investment" to get back to a professional level of skiing after suffering injuries in a horror accident.Chemmy starred on the seventh season of Dancing on Ice in 2012 alongside her professional skating partner, the late Sean Rice.One year prior, the sportswoman sustained serious injuries to her leg following a horror crash that shattered her leg.After the collision at 80mph the star feared that she would never walk again let alone get back to the sport she loved.Detailing her injuries as a result of the crash, Chemmy said that she was "written off" by people in the industry.She said: "I'd been dropped by UK Sport beforehand."And not many people believe that I could get back to the sport that I love."And I really was adamant I wanted to ski race again."You know, people wrote me off," she added.However, the star jumped at the chance to star on the ITV ice-skating show as a way of getting back on to the slopes.Chemmy explained: "That gave me a chance to increase my profile, which helped me get sponsors so I could go on the tour and afford to ski again."So, you know, it was all kind of self-investment."The mother-of-two told how she took her time on the show seriously.She said: "That's almost why I probably didn't enjoy it as much as I would now because I had a goal."I needed to get to a point where I could get back to skiing, there was a purpose with it."I wasn't just a celebrity taking time out of life and having a jolly," she explained.Chemmy added that if she were to appear on the show again now she'd probably have more fun."I was quite serious about
