Has any other Strictly professional won the Glitterball trophy twice as Bill and Oti win Strictly 2020?

Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse were crowned winners of Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday, bringing an end to one of the most entertaining and unusual series in the show’s history.

The pair impressed the judges and fans once again to beat HRVY, Jamie Laing and Maisie Smith in the final.

It marks the second successive win for Oti, who has made a huge impression on the show since joining in 2015.

The South African dancer claimed the trophy for the first time last year, when she won with Emmerdale star Kelvin Fletcher, and she’s now the reigning champion for the second year running.

It’s an impressive feat – but is Oti the only one to have managed it?

Has any other Strictly professional won the Glitterball trophy twice?

While no other Strictly professional has won the show in successive years, Aliona Vilani has won the Glitterball trophy twice.

The Russian-Kazakh dancer was victorious in 2011 and 2015 with Harry Judd and Jay McGuiness respectively.

It’s an exclusive club, and Oti could yet become the first to win the show three times if she’s successful again next year.

It comes after Bill was named the winner in Saturday’s thrilling final – which achieved 13.2 million viewers at its peak.

Bill, who is 55, became the oldest winner in the competition’s history. He takes the record from Joe McFadden.

Bill and Oti thanked fans for their support throughout the series in an emotional video shared on social media

‘We cannot express in words what this means to us both,’ Bill said. ‘So to everyone that voted for us, everyone that supported us, any message of support that we received, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. ‘It means the world to us both.’

‘And thank you to everyone who supported the show,’ Oti added. ‘It means the world to us.

Strictly Come Dancing is able to stream on BBC iPlayer.
