The dancers then pulled away her uniform to reveal a beautiful blue princess dress, which kickstarted the mesmerising festive spectacle.

Performing a three-minute routine, Christmas shoppers and commuters were left captivated by the impromptu dance, as the troupe perfectly executed a series of jaw-dropping lifts and spins.

One bystander 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 flash mob was devised by award-winning movement director and choreographer, Richard Marcel, who has previously worked on Strictly Come Dancing, X-Factor, and Lip Sync Battle.

The group took to the shopping centre to celebrate the launch of the new Disney+ film, Disenchanted – with the performance set to a new track from the film, Love Power.

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.

“When performing in such an environment, it is never easy to predict just how smoothly it will go – but the team did amazingly, and it was such a joy to see the reaction of all the shoppers.”

Disenchanted, which debuts on Disney+ today (Friday), is a sequel to the musical film Enchanted, and follows Giselle, Robert, and Morgan 15 years after their happily ever after.

One of the stars of the film, Idina Menzel, said: “Musical storytelling is a passion of mine, so I’m delighted to hear that the song was brought to life by Oti Mabuse and the dance troupe through an amazing flash mob for Disney+.

“I hope to see more fans bursting into song and dance like we did in the film.”
