Bill Bailey is the frontrunner to win Strictly Come Dancing, after delighting viewers with his stints on the dance floor.

The Black Boots actor is currently partnered up with Oti Mabuse – who won last year’s Strictly competition with Kelvin Fletcher.

The 55-year-old notched up an impressive 26 points during movie week, landing in second place on the leaderboard underneath Ranvir Singh and Giovanni Pernice.

He is now the new favourite to win the show overall, with Coral announcing his odds as 7-4 – a huge improvement on the 33-1 odds he started the series on.

Bill Bailey started this series of Strictly as one of the outsiders in the whole field,’ Coral’s John Hill said.

‘However, he has made a mockery of those odds in the opening three weeks.

‘We have taken more bets on Bailey than any of other contestant over the last seven days and as a result of that support, the comedian is the new favourite to lift the Glitterball Trophy.’

We wouldn’t put it past him.

Maisie Smith is second favourite to take home the trophy according to the bookies, with her odds at 5-2, while HRVY is 3-1 to win.

Bill and Oti are hitting the dance floor to perform a couple’s choice routine on Saturday, to Rapper’s Delight by the Sugarhill Gang.

Fans shouldn’t be too surprised at his dancing prowess as he revealed he took dance classes during his childhood.

The Mirror states an extract from his book, Bill Bailey’s Remarkable Guide to Happiness, read: ‘When I was a teenager I had ballroom dancing lessons. There was a dance school across the road from our house and I learned the waltz, the foxtrot and the quickstep.

‘The teacher was a tiny, petite woman with a huge passion for The Dance.

Bill added: ‘I can see the appeal of the foxtrot, the tango, the rhumba, the formal nature of it all, the practiced moves, the precision, but it’s not really me.’

Well, that’s not quite true anymore…

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday, at 7.10pm, on BBC One.
