Motsi Mabuse has been a permanent member of the “Strictly Come Dancing” jury since August 2019 and is an integral part of the trio of residents. Year after year, the dancing couples look to prove their skills in front of them in the British version of “Let’s Dance.”
The dance judge has now announced that she will not be participating in the live show of “Strictly Come Dancing” this week.
In an Instagram post, the South African wrote that she had been contacted by the NHS: Mabuse is said to have been in contact with someone who tested positive for coronavirus.
The UK restrictions are in effect that those who have been vaccinated twice do not need to be isolated. However, the vaccine and the Motsi Mabuse booster vaccine received in Germany are “not recognized” in the UK.
“I’m sad that I can’t be at Strictly this weekend,” the post said. But she has no other choice: “I have to follow British government guidelines and can’t return to the UK until after November 30,” she told her followers.
But she doesn’t want to complain about being negative, in good health, and with her family, “This is important!”
“This epidemic is not over yet. I would like it to be treated as a global problem.”
Cynthia Erivo will replace Mutsy Mabuse
“We can confirm that Motsy Mabuse will not be participating in Strictly Come Dancing this weekend,” a statement read. At the time Mutesi’s post was published, it was not yet known who would replace him on the jury this weekend.
Officials for the TV show later announced that Cynthia Erivo will be a guest judge and will sit on the jury alongside Craig Revell-Horwood, Anton de Beek, and presiding judge Shirley Palace.
Academy Award-nominated and stage star Erivo was a member of the Music Week jury this past weekend with Mabuse, Du Beek and Blass, while Revell Horwood was fired. I was impressed when she gave actress Rose Ayling Ellis, the show’s first deaf participant, feedback through sign language to her dance number.
Not everyone is sad
For someone very special, Motsi Mabuse’s involuntary rejection of the offer is a good thing: The “Let’s Dance” judge revealed this in a Saturday morning tweet. She wrote – apparently, about her three-year-old daughter, with whom she can now spend the day in peace: “One of them was very happy that her mother is not working today.” He also thanked Mutsy for the support after the cancellation.
Thank you all for the support guys, especially here – we all know Twitter lol enjoyed the show tonight. It’s already starting to snow today it looks so beautiful and someone was so glad mum isn’t working today ❤️. Be kind tonight while supporting your favorites.#strictly pic.twitter.com/c6yCJnk9Pk

Pochers are in defense mode! Oliver and Princess Bucher are squabbling again with Anne Winch – Reason: In the latest issue of “Die Pochers hier!” , they talked about Laura Muller, who sold some luxury bags of her own at bargain prices on Instagram. “Does she really want to do something good for her fans with the bags – which I wouldn’t say are all real – or are jobs, money, and everything else just lacking?”Ollie asked himself in his podcast.
