Bill Bailey has done his two dances with Oti Mabuse in the Strictly Come Dancing Semi-Finals.

First of all Bailey and Mabuse danced the Charleston to Won't You Come Home (Bill Bailey).

The judges were pretty pleased with them and they scored a total of 25 points.

News: Bill Bailey Goes Metal On Strictly

Bill Bailey has made it through to the next week on Strictly Come Dancing.

His Argentinian tango to Phantom of the Opera with Oti Mabuse was not perfect but with the help of the viewer vote it was enough to save him from the dance off.

Afterwards Balley said he hadn't been this nervous since he was waiting for his O level results.

And he revealed what he will be dancing to next week. It will be the metal anthem Enter Sandman by Metallica.

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.
