Strictly Come Dancing star Bill Bailey has got himself a fan in none other than Janet Jackson.

The legendary singer praised his retro performance with Oti Mabuse on the most recent live show.

Dressed in sharp suits and wide-brimmed hats the pair pulled off a pretty flawless Couple’s Choice routine set to Rapper’s Delight by The Sugar Hill Gang.

The use of props and their fancy syncronised footwork impressed not only the viewers but the judges too, with Shirley Ballas awarding them a perfect 10.

The comedian and actor surprised everyone with his twinkle toes and is currently the favourite to win the Glitterball trophy this series, and he’s a favourite with Janet, who lives in London, as well.

Strictly fans pointed out how Bill and Oti’s styling and staging were just like Janet’s music video for Alright.

The star must have been alerted to their routine as she posted a clip on her Twitter and wrote: ‘Nice! #GoinIN’ adding a fire emoji.

Judge Craig Revel Horwood was loving it too and said confessed he hopes to see Bill and Oti in the final.

‘I adore him, he just shocks me. Every time I see him dance, I am surprised, amazed and delighted. I never thought for one moment he would be able to do it’, he told Lorraine.

‘I would love to see him in the final,’ he continued.

‘I think he is brilliant, the dark horse of the competition.’
