    From judge Motsi Mabuse's sister to pro dancer Kai Widdrington's brother – Daily Star has taken a look at the attractive siblings who happen to share their professional dancer brothers and sisters' amazing genes.

    Kai Widdrington's brother Theo

    Kai may no longer be in the 2023 competition after he and celebrity partner Angela Rippon were voted off but he can look forward to a family Christmas with his two siblings, one sister and one brother.

Kai, nearly signed onto a contract within the Premier League at the age of 12, but turned it down to instead pursue a career in dancing.
