News: Bill Bailey And Oti Mabuse Win Strictly Come Dancing 2020

Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse have won this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

Bailey, 55, had started the series as an outsider but was odds-on favourite in the run-up to the final.

First up they scored 29 points for their quickstep to 'Talk to the Animals' (by Bobby Darin)

Then after scoring a maximum of 30 points for their routine to Queen's The Show Must Go On. Bailey said: “This is not just a song about the arts. It’s an anthem about not giving up; getting through this. It’s about being strong.”

For their final dance to Rapper's Delight the judges were unanimous.

Motsi said "star quality, well done guys" and gave them 10

Craig Revel Horwood said: "you rocked" and gave them 9. 

And Shirley Ballas called him a "dancer extraordinaire" and gave them 10

Giving them another total of 29 in an extremely high scoring final.

But the ultimate decision was down to the viewers phoning in for their favourite. And they gave national treasure Bill Bailey their vote.
