The duo are perfecting their routine before Saturday night’s show – and it looks as though the reigning champ is giving her new dancing buddy a hard time.
Taking to Instagram Oti shared a picture of the comedian striking a pose with a dance skirt flung around his neck.
‘Don’t know, walked into rehearsals, blinked twice and thought @grahnort came to visit…’ she wrote alongside the caption.
‘Trying to get that neck to get longer with a dance skirt that actually looks cool on @the_bill_bailey.’
Oti had also shared a video of Bill getting into the zone on her stories and couldn’t help but giggle at his mental preperation.
Right on cue, fans were quick to comment on her posts where they expressed their excitement for the new pairing.
‘I think he’s defo gonna be one to watch,’ one wrote while another said: ‘Dream team. My favourite dancer/ choreographer together with my favourite comedian!! ‘
Someone else added: ‘I am so looking forward to this partnership.’
Other believe they’ve found their winner – it looks like the current favourite Maisie Smith needs to watch out.
Just yesterday it was revealed Bill had previously taken ballroom lessons, although he admits it wasn’t for him.
In an extract from his new book Bill Bailey’s Remarkable Guide to Happiness obtained by The Mirror, he wrote: ‘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.
‘It was a marvellous and quite surreal experience to whirl around a dance hall with this ball of terpsichorean energy. Bless her and all those she must have enlightened to her world.
‘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.’
Bill quit after just two lessons – which happened over 40 years ago – but it looks like he still remembers all the hip action!
Strictly Come Dancing airs Saturday on BBC One.
