Bill Bailey Will Be Dancing To A Rap Classic In This Strictly Come Dancing Week's Live Show

Anyone still not over the sight of Max George as Homer Simpson on last week’s Strictly Come Dancing might want to brace themselves, because now it’s Bill Bailey’s turn to perform a Couple’s Choice routine.

The songs and dances being performed in Saturday night’s live show have now been revealed, with the comedian and his professional partner Oti Mabuse set to take on The Sugarhill Gang’s Rapper’s Delight.

We have absolutely no idea how that’s going to turn out, but we wouldn’t miss it for the world.

As well as Bill and Oti tackling the ground-breaking hip-hop track for their performance, it’s been revealed that Nicola Adams and Katya Jones will be performing an American Smooth to the Ben E King classic Stand By Me, after surviving last week’s dance-off.

Meanwhile, Ranvir Singh and Giovanni Pernice will be hoping they can keep top the leaderboard two weeks in a row with a Cha Cha to Pete Rodriguez’s I Like It, famously sampled by Cardi B on her 2018 hit of the same name.
