Strictly Come Dancing star Bill Bailey has showed off his impressive weight loss thanks to his intense rehearsal sessions with pro partner Oti Mabuse.

Oti revealed Bill’s weight loss on Instagram recently, sharing a picture of the comedian at rehearsals in a grey top, black trousers and dance shoes.

But Bill’s weight loss isn’t just thanks to his training, as Oti also credited his wife Kristin for making him healthy meals.

“Who is this person? How much weight did @the_bill_bailey lose?” Oti captioned the pic.


“Wow – I should definitely run a dance school and help people lose weight through dance also mrs Bailey very healthy meals have helped #danceismylife #newandimproved #skinnymini,” she added with three winking emojis.

Bill has found himself in the semi-final of this year’s competition, alongside Maisie Smith, Jamie Laing and HRVY.

On this Saturday night’s (December 12) show, Bill and Oti will be dancing the Tango to Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’, while their second dance is a Charleston to ‘(Won’t You Come Home) Bill Bailey’ by Ottilie Patterson with Chris Barber.

Meanwhile, judge Craig Revel Horwood has named Bill as the celebrity contestant who surprised him most this series.

“I think we’ve had a great mix of contestants this year, not to mention a very committed and flexible group given the limitations we’ve had to place on filming,” Craig said while speaking to The Guardian.

“Bill Bailey has really surprised me though. He has a great musicality that I didn’t quite expect.”

Strictly Come Dancing continues this Saturday (December 12) on BBC One. Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two, hosted by Zoe Ball and Rylan Clark-Neal, airs Mondays through Fridays at 6.30pm on BBC Two.
