Strictly's Oti Mabuse stuns onlookers as she leads surprise flash mob dance in shopping centre | The Sun
STRICTLY Come Dancing star Oti Mabuse, 32, stunned onlookers while leading a surprise flash mob.
It took place in the Westfield White City shopping centre, with the star appearing alongside 30 dancers and singers.
Oti amazed Christmas shoppers as she started off as an unsuspecting barista before being joined by undercover security guards, grotto elves, shopping assistants and cleaners.
The dancers pulled away Oti’s uniform to reveal a beautiful dress beneath and the festive spectacle began.
One person said: “That was so magical, I couldn’t take my eyes off of it – it has made me feel like Christmas is coming.”
While another added: “Oh my goodness – I can’t believe it. I was literally walking past, then that music, it was brilliant.
"The back flip was my favourite as I thought he was actually a security guard.”
The performance, which marked the release of Disney's Disenchanted, a sequel to the musical film Enchanted, went on for three-minutes and amazed fans with its series of lifts and spins.
Two-time Strictly Come Dancing winner, Oti Mabuse, said: “I am a huge fan of all things Disney so to be transformed into a Disney Princess was a dream come true.
“I loved the first Enchanted film so jumped at the chance to surprise shoppers with this dance.
