Comedian Bill Bailey has taken Strictly Come Dancing 2020 betting by storm.

Betting firm Ladbrokes has made him the new favourite.

The 55-year-old was a massive outsider before the new series started.

But just a month later and Bailey is now the 4/6 odds-on favourite to win* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 05:37 GMT on Tuesday, 17th November 2020).

As it stands the Glitterball is firmly on his radar after some impressive performances with professional partner Oti Mabuse.

It was a slow start to the series for Bailey though who took only 15 points for his opening dance, but he recovered well to score highly in the second.

It was a tally of 39 points from the first two and the couple have followed up with back to back high scores in the following two rounds.

Bailey has claimed top scores in the series for the Paso Doble, the Quickstep and Street.

It has been an average of 23 points from Bill & Oti this season, a statistic which is only bettered by HRVY & Jannette and Maisie & Gorka.

In the last round, Bill & Oti scored 27 for their Street performance to “Rapper’s Delight” by The Sugarhill Gang.

The only thing missing from the challenge of Bill & Oti is having secured the top-scoring dance in a night.

Will that come? Punters and bookmakers are recognising the growing force that Bill Bailey is, in Strictly Come Dancing betting odds.
