A pregnant Oti Mabuse cradled her blossoming baby bump as she arrived at the Pride of Britain Awards 2023 at Grosvenor House in London on Sunday.
The former Strictly Come Dancing star, 33, who is expecting her first child with husband Marius Iepure, 41, wore an edgy black dress with silver studs on the top and an asymmetrical hem on the skirt.
Twinkle-toed star Oti put on a leggy display as she posed on the red carpet, while she added a few inches to her stature by wearing a pair of towering black heels.
She ensured onlookers got a full view of her outfit, turning to reveal the ruffled detail of her skirt.
Oti announced she was pregnant live on air during ITV’s Oti Mabuse’s Breakfast Show in August.

She said at the time: ‘Speaking of things that you didn’t know at home, we have a little something for all of you, we’ve been holding some good news. We’re having a baby!’
Oti and husband Marius met in Germany during a dance trial and competed together in several competitions.
They tied the knot in 2014 and he moved to the UK with her when she was offered Strictly Come Dancing.
