Motsi Mabuse accidentally revealed a family secret live on air during Saturday night’s episode of Strictly Come Dancing.
The judge, 42, who is married to husband Evgenij Voznyuk, is often in the spotlight but has chosen not to publicly reveal the name of their daughter, four.
But while speaking to contestant Layton Williams and his professional partner Nikita Kuzmin, she mistakenly called Nikita by her daughter’s name.
Giving some pointers on their routine she began: ‘I have to say the acting part the sentiment all of that, I think it’s so beautiful. Your fingers when you dance, they look so detailed, so beautiful.
‘I just feel just as detailed as you are with other things, other things have to be more detailed.

Motsi continued: ‘The centre is too open so if it’s open it’s difficult for [daughter’s name]. I’m sorry. I just said my daughter’s name. You know I’m a mum!
‘Nikita and my daughter’s names are quite similar, sorry everybody. So Nikita can’t lead it with an open centre and the second thing is watch the feet.’
It comes after Motsi hit out at her ex-husband Timo Culczak’s lawyer after he claimed she could face a jail sentence in response to her comments in her autobiography.
It was reported in April this year that the German dancer was suing his former wife, 42, for £70,000 after she told how Timo limited her access to money and even dictated what she ate in her memoir, Finding My Own Rhythm, which was released in September 2022.
Motsi, who divorced Timo in 2014 after 11 years of marriage, has since refused to settle the agreement.
It was reported earlier today that Timo and his lawyer are allegedly asking the court to jail the TV judge for up to six months or fine her £250,000 if she were to repeat her previously made claims, the Sun wrote.
But hitting back, Motsi’s spokesperson said today: ‘No such written court order exists – it is categorically untrue that our client faces imprisonment with regards to her former husband’s civil lawsuit, or that a fine, which would only be payable if our client culpably violates a court order, would be more than a nominal amount.
‘There is no legal basis for this lawsuit. To reiterate, our client reserves all rights in this matter.’

The statement comes after the Sun reported that Timo’s lawyer Samy Hammad said: ‘Ms Mabuse is refusing to pay, and so the court now has to decide.
‘All we just want her to do is to retract the untruths published about him, and to compensate him accordingly.
‘My client’s reputation has repeatedly been trashed.
‘You have to threaten a penalty saying if you do it again, this is what I want in terms of money, or in terms of the prison sentence,’ he told the publication.
