Can Bill really win Strictly?!

Strictly Come Dancing has revealed that favourite to win Bill Bailey will be dancing to Frank Sinatra next.

As all the songs and dances were revealed for week five of Strictly Come Dancing 2020, it was announced that Bill and Oti will be performing an American Smooth to the Sinatra classic I’ve Got You Under My Skin.

With just eight remaining couples left, the comedian has emerged as a massive favourite to become the 2020 champion.

Maisie surprisingly found herself in the bottom two last weekend when Max George and Dianne Buswell departed.

She knows she needs to really impress the judges this Saturday if she’s to stand a realistic chance of winning.
