This is Unscripted - a podcast brought to you by ITV News Arts Editor Nina Nannar. In each episode, Nina speaks to a leading name from the world of arts and entertainment.

Her guests talk about their life and work, plus Nina asks them where they see themselves in five years.

On Unscripted this week, Nina is joined by comedian, musician, actor and 2020's Strictly Come Dancing champion Bill Bailey.

Bill talks returning to the stage with his tour show, put on hold last year due to the pandemic.

He tells Nina how Strictly has made dancing a part of his life forever - in the supermarket, on the street, and in inspiring others.

And the pair cover the rather surprising fact that Bill's a registered zookeeper.
