Classic Interview: Strictly Star Bill Bailey

I've interviewed Bill Bailey twice during his career. Once on the way up in 2000. And then once again when he was on his way even further up in 2018, playing huge "enormodomes". Could he get any bigger? Tune in to BBC One on Saturday nights to see for yourself. Bailey started off as what was perceived by some as something of a novelty booking for Strictly Come Dancing, but as I write he is being talked of as a favourite to make the final and maybe even win.
