Strictly judge Motsi Mabuse hints she already knows who'll win 2021 series saying dancer is 'a frontrunner'

STRICTLY Come Dancing judge Motsi Mabuse has hinted she already knows who’ll win the 2021 series.

The star admitted she thought the show’s first deaf contestant – Rose Ayling-Ellis – was “one to watch”, as the dance competition kicks off this weekend.


Appearing on today’s Good Morning Britain, she was quizzed by Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard about if she had seen the stars dancing yet.

She revealed:  “Yeah we did, we could see people a little bit, not much. 

“They were just dancing a tiny bit. But you could see, I feel she has talent. I think all opportunities are open, it’s just the question of how she will cope with everything else.”

Motsi added: “But I would say she is really someone to watch out for.”

Rose is also currently the bookies favourite to take home the Glitterball Trophy.

The EastEnders actress – who plays Mick Carter’s daughter Frankie – recently revealed she will be able to hear the music despite misconceptions she can’t. 

She told BBC news: "It is a common misconception that deaf people can't enjoy music.

"I have a hearing aid, so I pick up some of the music and I can hear the beat. I can hear someone singing, but I can't identify exact words. I also feel the vibrations."

She added: “I will be focusing on reading my partner's body language plus counting in my head, which will help me with timing.So for me it's a combination of everything."

"However not all deaf people are the same, every deaf person will have their own unique experience with music. I do love music and I can't wait to be taught how to dance at a professional level for Strictly!"

Viewers will find out who she is partnered with on Saturday evening when the show kicks off.
