Duchess of Cornwall set to make ‘surprise cameo’ during Strictly Come Dancing final

Strictly: Oti Mabuse and Bill discuss Couple's Choice dance

Strictly Come Dancing will crown one celebrity the winner of the 2020 series tonight after the four finalists battle it out with three dances each. In a bid to make it a special occasion, the BBC have reportedly organised a cameo appearance from the Duchess of Cornwall. 

Camilla Parker-Bowles is a “massive fan” of the show and apparently “votes every week”. 

BBC One viewers will see her appear in two pre-recorded clips where she will praise the show for helping to “cheer the nation” during what she called the “bleak” pandemic. 

A royal source has said: “Camilla’s team rang long before filming began and said she was a massive fan — and wanted to be on the show.

“They said she would be happy to do anything, so when they asked her to film a cameo for the final, she leapt at the chance.

“Camilla said her dream was always to appear on the series but royal protocol probably wouldn’t allow it.

“Instead she nailed a fabulous film in one take, and was brilliant,” they added to The Sun. 

As for who her favourite couple is, she is “quite open to friends and family” about it, but keeps hush during her video appearance. 

Express.co.uk has contacted Strictly Come Dancing for comment. 

Camilla is not the only royal to have featured in this series, JJ Chalmers was supported by Prince Harry. 

The former Royal Marine Commando became friends with the ex-senior royal during the Invictus Games and appeared on a pre-recorded video one week to offer JJ luck. 

As for who Camilla will be cheering on from Clarence House this evening, Bill Bailey, Maisie Smith, Jamie Laing and HRVY will take to the dance floor. 

They will perform three routines each; a judge’s choice, couple’s choice and show dance.

Not only will have to impress those watching at home, but the three juges; Motsi Mabuse, Craig Revel Horwood and Shirley Ballas. 

And while Bill is a favourite of the expert panel, he is also popular with punters. 

According to bookmakers Betway, the comedian will be crowned the 2020 champion. 

His odds currently sit at 8/11 to lift the Glitterball Trophy – but will fans vote for Oti Mabuse to win for the second year running? 

As for where his fellow contestants sit, HRVY and Janette Manrara are 7/4. 

Meanwhile, EastEnders star Maisie and her professional dance partner Gorka Marquez are 5/1. 

Jamie, who has been in the bottom two four times, is looking the least likely to win with Karen Hauer, as Betway put him at 50/1. 

Strictly Come Dancing concludes tonight on BBC One.
