News: Bill Bailey Mourns Pet Before Latest Strictly Round

News: Bill Bailey Goes Metal On Strictly

Bill Bailey heads into the latest round of Strictly Come Dancing following the news that one of his dogs died this week.

Bailey posted the news on Twitter: "Today we said goodbye to our lovely rescue dog Banjar. Farewell old friend. Sleep well."

Bailey is a famous animal lover and has a number of dogs in his West London home.

This week Bailey and his dance partner Oti Mabuse are set to perform a couple’s choice routine. They will be dancing to Rapper’s Delight by the Sugarhill Gang.

In an article in the Telegraph Bailey recalled covering the sing as a teenager. "An old friend got in touch to tell me she had a recollection of me performing the entire 15-minute version to a barn full of partygoers when I was 18. It’s a blessing there were no camera phones back then."

There are a couple of unexpected changes to Strictly this week. Anton Du Beke is replacing judge Motsi Mabuse who is self-isolating following a trip to Germany and Nicola Adams has had to leave after her partner Katya Jones tested positive for Covid.

Strictly Come Dancing is on BBC One, Saturday, 7.10pm.
