"I get like that when I'm in work mode: when I'm really going for it, sometimes, I'll start working at two in the morning and then I'll go back to bed [for a bit] and start working again at 8am," she added.

After Bill and Oti amazing viewers and the Strictly judges with their quickstep, involving an elephant on stage, she said about the shows diversity: "When I look at the shows I've worked for, they've been so diverse.

The Strictly champ admitted that she occasionally starts work at 2am

On Strictly, we have 17 professional dancers who all look completely different; they represent something unique, with [dancers] from Australia, New York, South Africa, and China. I'm proud that we have that representation."

After admitting that her job requires her to be "strong" and "creative" the South African native revealed that the inspiring words of Tony Robbins keep her mental health "aligned".
