Motsi Mabuse has hinted that a breast reduction could be on the cards in the future.

The Strictly Come Dancing judge, 39, said in an interview with MailOnline that her ample cleavagehas not been an advantage” and suggested that she hasn’t ruled out going under the knife to get a smaller bust.

Discussing her and her sister Oti’s chests, she said: “‘No no no, (having big breasts) has not been an advantage for us. Not at all!

“We already look different with our skin colour and our bodies are completely different. We stand out enough already.”

Motsi said a friend had a breast reduction operation and told her afterwards that it was the best thing she had done.

“Let’s talk in a year!’ she teased, adding: “I just think that you need to be comfortable. That’s the most important thing. If you don’t feel comfortable, change it.”

However, the dancer and TV star also remarked on the need to be grateful for what you have.

And she noted that there would be some people who would love to have her healthy breasts – regardless of their size.

Motsi’s sister, Strictly pro Oti, has previously revealed that she was in tears when she had her first fitting for the BBC ballroom show because she thought her 28GG chest was “massive” compared to the other dancers.

However, she said the fact that nobody mentioned it ended up boosting her self-esteem.

She told ITV’s Lorraine last year: “Strictly opened a lot of doors to me. I remember fitting my first bra and I was crying. I was like, ‘This looks so bad and I look so massive compared to the other girls.’

“Nobody picked on me for it and no-one discriminated against me for it and nobody said anything in a negative way and I think that helped me and my self-esteem and my nerves about being out in a bra with sequins on’.”
