Bill Bailey and HRVY are neck and neck to win Strictly Come Dancing 2020, according to Ladbrokes.

For weeks, comedian Bailey has been far ahead of his fellow competitors in the fight to take home this year’s Glitterball Trophy, despite starting the show as a 50/1 outsider to win. He is currently at 11/8 to win.

However, over the last two weeks social media star HRVY has risen up the ranks, after scoring the show’s first perfect 30 for his Street/Commercial routine and 29 for this week’s American Smooth. He is now at 6/4, putting him slightly ahead of Bailey.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It looks as though we’ve finally got a competition on our hands once again. While Bill has headed the betting for some time HRVY has closed the gap considerably this weekend in the race for this year’s Glitterball Trophy.”

This week’s Strictly semi-final will see the dancers take on their biggest challenge yet as they perform two different routines for the first time.

During Sunday (6 December) night’s results show, which saw JJ Chalmers eliminated from the competition, Bailey revealed that one of his two routines would be a Tango to “Enter Sandman” by Metallica.

Bill Bailey – 11/8

Maisie Smith –10/1

Jamie Laing – 50/1

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 7pm on BBC One.
