Who won Strictly Come Dancing 2020?

Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse won Strictly Come Dancing 2020 beating HRVY, Maisie Smith and Jamie Laing in the grand final.

The 55-year-old comedian made history as he became the eldest contestant to take home the Giltterball trophy.

Oti also became the first ever professional dancer to win the show two years in a row.

Host Tess Daly announced the result as the nine-week series came to an end early because of coronavirus.

Bill, HRVY and Maisie all finished top of the leaderboard with a total of 88 points from three dances.

They were followed by Jamie in last place, with 84 after failing to land a ten from Craig Revel Horwood.

Moments before the final, bookies slashed HRVY's odds – making him odds-on favourite to win.

Mybettingsites.co.uk saw Jamie Laing as the obvious outsider at 40/1, with HRVY at 4/9, Bill Bailey following behind at 6/5 and Maisie Smith priced at 7/1.

Tweeting before the show, Bill said: "Hey everyone just a reminder that the #StrictlyFinal is on tonight at the earlier time of 6pm.

"Thanks to all of you for supporting me the wonderful @OtiMabuse . We can’t wait to get on the dance floor one last time! It will be….emotional. And we get to do Rapper’s Delight!"

What did Bill Bailey say?

Bill Bailey said: "The moment we've all been waiting for… the Strictly champions of 2020 are Bill and Oti.

"It feels surreal, extraordinary and wonderful.

"I never thought we would get this far. I never thought we'd get to the final.

"I've had the most extraordinary teacher and the most extraordinary dancer.

"Someone who has believed in me right from the beginning. She found something in me and turned me into this – into a dancer. Thank you Oti."

Oti – who won last year with Kelvin Fletcher – broke down in tears listening to Bill's kind words.

She said: "I think you are amazing, remarkable Bill Bailey. You put your heart into everything and your soul into everything.

"You are in your own world, but I love your world and always want to be a part of you.

"Thank you for being a friend and father figure to me, a brother… and for THIS" as she pointed at the Glitterball trophy.

What did fans say?

One viewer said: "I shouted YES so loud at my joy of Bill winning that the neighbours heard me."

Another added: "Before tonight, no professional had ever won two series of Strictly in a row and it was obvious that, along with the politician, the 55yo 'part troll' man was meant to be a bit of a joke candidate. Never, ever bet against Bill Bailey. The man can do anything."

Someone else said: "Best final ever @bbcstrictly absolutely amazing viewing, thank you for being my shining light over the last 8 weeks #StrictlyFinal."
