Strictly 2021 costumes spotted in video as Ugo Monye shares rare backstage clip

Strictly Come Dancing star Ugo Monye is more familiar with a rugby kit than sequins and sparkles, but he has given fans a sneak peek at the outfits the contestants will be wearing for the first live shows this weekend.

Ugo, 38, has been sharing plenty of videos and pictures on his Instagram, to keep fans up to date with his rehearsals with dance partner Oti Mabuse.

He posted a video to his stories that showed him walking down a corridor at the famed Elstree studios, wearing a clear plastic face covering.

He calls rival dancer, Bake Off's John Whaite, a "sexy beast" as he follows him down the corridor.

"Right, we're back at Elstree! Look at this sexy beast here!" he says, as John jokingly wraps a jumper around his face like a mask.

"There he is! There he is. Today is our camera run, we go through all our dances. Look at all of the amount of costumes we're going to get through over the next few weeks" he says, and turns the camera to rail upon rail of clothes.

"The sun is shining! We're almost there. Tomorrow night, Strictly, BBC 1, let's go!" he says as John cheers and skips behind him.

Ugo has been teamed up with Oti, who won the competition with Bill Bailey last year but he doesn't seem to be feeling the pressure.

He has shared videos of the pair bickering affectionately over the fact that professional dancer Oti doesn't like Jaffa Cakes.

She got her own back mimicking Ugo's whining when he says he's had enough practicing.

He also gave fans a look at some of his dance moves, but it was his unusual impression of a snail, so it might not feature in a proper routine.

Fans will get to see some of the outfits for real on Saturday night.
