As if we weren't already excited enough to watch Bill Bailey dance to Enter Sandman during this Saturday's Strictly Come Dancing semi-finals, dance partner Oti Mabuse has shared the most ridiculously uplifting video from the pair's rehearsals.

Surprising the Strictly champion, Bill brought along his famous horns to parp along to the Metallica classic with absolute glee earlier this week. They'll be doing the much more classy tango on the night, of course, but if this was allowed during the show? Well, we'd have to imagine Bill and Oti would be awarded the perfect score…

"As if I couldn’t be more thrilled to be in Bill Bailey's presence he goes and surprises me with some of the closing scene of his tour with him playing Enter Sandman on the horns," wrote Oti on Twitter. "Hope we do it justice for all Bill and Metallica fans! Who would have thought we would make it this far."

Check it out below – and tune in to Strictly from 7pm on BBC One to watch what is surely going to be a very special dance…
