STRICTLY Come Dancing star Oti Mabuse rakes in a whopping £2million through two secret side hustles that aren’t mentioned on TV.
The 32-year-old dancer has banked an impressive £1.5million from her TV, media and advertising work in the last year.
Oti Mabuse makes money through two secret side hustles
The star skyrocketed to fame on Strictly
Her firm, named Pure Mabuse Entertainment Ltd, earned the impressive sum from advertising contracts like food firm Premier Protein and a book deal.
And she added an additional £500,000 on to that through selling dance classes to fans.
As well as this, the stunning star picks up around £3,000 per Instagram post and earns revenue from her popular YouTube account.
And creditors to be paid in a year – the tax office – show a figure of £240, 481, which is based on an income of five times that figure and, with expenses and costs deducted, her firm will have turned over around £1.5m.
There’s no doubt the star has been a firm face on our screens in recent years, especially after winning Strictly with underdog Bill Bailey and with soap star Kelvin Fletcher.
Oti has also signed a deal for not one but two picture books, with the debut one, named Dance with Oti, celebrating dance, movement and expressing your feelings.
The book will also teach readers a simple 10-step dance routine.
Discussing her work with the publishers, the star shared: “I am incredibly proud and excited to be working with the team at Walker Books on my first children’s book.
“It has always been my passion to get children dancing: this first book is an easy way for mums and dads to get their kids moving, talking about their feelings, and hopefully just having fun. I can’t wait for you all to read it next year.”
It comes as it was revealed that Oti is set to make a flying return to hit BBC show Strictly.
Oti will be making a brief comeback to choreograph a routine for her fellow professionals to kick off Musical Week.
Oti has worked alongside choreographer Nikki Trow and described the gig as an “amazing opportunity”.
She was part of the BBC dancing show for seven years and is the only professional to win the competition in two consecutive years.
As well as this, she was a judge on The Greatest Dancer for two series in 2019 and 2020 and has presented Morning Live.
This year she joined the judging panel of Dancing on Ice, which led to speculation that it was the final step for her departure from Strictly.
