If you’ve spent the last few weeks re-watching Ed Balls’ Gangnam Style at every given opportunity then last night’s Strictly final had a treat in store for you…
The former politician’s routine to Psy’s smash hit stole the show – and practically broke the internet – when he and partner Katya Jones first performed it earlier in the series. And so as this year’s intake returned to the Strictly studio for one last time, it fell to Ed to provide the comic relief once again. And he didn’t disappoint.
This year’s Strictly celebrities reunited for one final routine with each couple getting a few bars to showcase their most memorable moves – but when Ed and Katya’s turn came around, the entire group got into the spirit…
And Twitter couldn’t believe its luck:
Ed Balls is in his Gangnam Style outfit. This is not a drill. #Strictly

The ‘people’s champion’ was subject to a whole new wave of love.

Ed Balls is my 2016 #strictly champion. The 'balls' to go on the show alone were enough for him to earn my respect – confidence galore.

Although this is probably something that no one needs to see…
Ed Balls could do a naked bomb in to a swimming pool for the Strictly final and get a 10.
