Strictly's Motsi Mabuse is spotted with her husband as she finishes isolation and prepares for judging panel return

STRICTLY's Motsi Mabuse has been spotted popping out for essentials in London as she prepares to return to the Strictly Come Dancing judging panel this weekend.

The 39-year-old dancer is returning to the show tonight after being forced to isolate following an urgent trip home to Germany.

The show judge, 39, rushed home to Germany after she was "targeted" by robbers who tried to break into her dance school.

But after isolating, Motsi was spotted shopping with her husband Evgenij Voznyuk and their daughter, two, in London yesterday.

Motsi wrapped up against the cold in a fluffy teddy bear coat and a pair of sheepskin Ugg boots.

She wore a black beanie hat and carried a Gucci handbag.


She made an appearance on last Saturday's addition of Strictly via a video link and said to Claudia Winkleman: "I have enjoyed the show. It’s been amazing. Well done, you guys have done so well. You can be proud of yourself. Every single one of you."

Claudia then confirmed Motsi's return tonight, saying: "We’ve missed you so much – we can’t wait to see you next week."

Motsi was forced to go to Germany to help police "solve the crime" and tighten up security at her dance school.

She shared a photo of a smashed glass door at the school and wrote on Instagram: "Unfortunately we have no good news.


"Someone tried to break into our school. We are working with the police to solve this crime.

"We know we have been targeted on purpose and we will improve security in our school so that this will not happen again."

She was then pictured at Heathrow airport heading to Germany, wearing a face mask and holding what was believed to have been her negative coronavirus test.


Motsi moved semi-permanently to London to film Strictly, while her husband Evgenij Voznyuk and their daughter, two, remained in Germany.

Motsi had to self-isolate for a fortnight in accordance with the lockdown rules.

Pro dancer Anton Du Beke filled in for her as judge whilst she was in quarantine.

Motsi revealed that she would need to go to Germany "for an urgent reason".

She told fans: "I will of course be following the UK Government guidelines and self-isolating for 14 days."

The older sister of Oti added: "I'll be watching from home and by the power of technology, should be in your living rooms.

"Watch out though, I'll be doing my own hair and make-up!"

It was the latest blow to Strictly Come Dancing, which has been hit with a series of coronavirus-related issues.

Nicola Adams and Katya Jones were forced off the show after the pro dancer tested positive for coronavirus.

Neither of them will be allowed to return to the BBC dance hit after the shocking news – leaving a gaping hole in the line-up.

Four crew members on the Saturday night juggernaut have also been forced to isolate after being in close quarters to Katya.

After The Sun broke the news, Nicola, 38, explained: "I’m absolutely devastated my Strictly journey has come to an end so soon."

She added: "I had so much more to give and so many people to win this for!

"But I just want to say a huge thank you to Katya for being the best dance partner anyone could ask for."

The news comes after Strictly: It Takes Two host Rylan Clark-Neal was forced into isolation after coming into contact with coronavirus.
