ONE of the judges on Strictly accidentally called a contestant by her daughter’s name while giving her feedback on a dance.
Motsi Mabuse, 42, gave professional dancer Nikita some advice on how to deal with Layton Williams as she revealed her child’s name for the first time.
While explaining her score, the mother mistakenly called one of the dancers by her daughter’s name before embarrassingly laughing at the faux pas.
“You can tell I’m a mother!” she joked.
The BBC show judge recently faced more serious family drama when her ex-husband sued her after she made claims in her autobiography.
She wrote that Timo Kulczak restricted her access to cash and controlled what she ate.
He has taken her to court for £70,000 and demanded she withdraw the claims.
Motsi rejected a plea deal and now has to prove her case to the judge in Germany.
Motsi and Timo, who met at a dance competition, married in 2003.
They divorced in 2014 and in 2017 she married her new dance partner Evgenij Vozynuk.
She had a little girl with Evgenij and the two now run a dance school together near Frankfurt.
