To adhere to coronavirus guidelines, each of this year’s Strictly contestants have been required to form support bubbles with their professional partners.
However, while Bill’s bubble includes partner Oti Mabuse and his wife, Kristin, their 16-year-old son Dax is not able to be included, as he is still attending school.
“Kristin won’t be able to go out and we can’t be near our son, Dax, because of his potential exposure at school,” Bill told The Times. “When he comes home he’ll eat separately from us. He thinks it’s hilarious.”
Bill also joked: “If I make any progress beyond the first round, then there’s a fair chance he’ll go feral.”
The stand-up comedian was one of the biggest surprises during this year’s Strictly live show, earning a lot of love from viewers for his Cha Cha Cha routine.
Pop singer HRVY bagged the highest score of the week on 25 points, even earning the first nine of the series from Motsi, while EastEnders star Maisie Smith was just behind on 24.
Strictly returns for the second live show of the series on Saturday night, although sadly producers have decided against going ahead with the show’s usual Halloween special.
