Ed Balls’ bizarrely entertaining journey through Strictly Come Dancing continued last night, where the former politician dazzled the crowd with a Zoolander-inspired Tango.
Complete with Blue Steel pouts, intense gyrations and some slick moves by partner Katya Jones, it was truly a sight to behold – and it’s safe to say viewers on the night were pretty entranced.

I hope one day I'll have as much fun as Ed Balls is having every week on #Strictly

Ed Balls did the best thing in doing Strictly Come Dancing and it has given him a platform to become the Labour leader he always craved.

Genuinely think @edballs is here to save 2016. Amazing entertainment. On a side note, Katyas dress is beautiful! She looks gorgeous.

Though one person perhaps not QUITE as enthusiastic (at least about a festive suggestion by the series) was Balls’ wife Yvette Cooper MP…

The Judges may be against you, Ed, but you’re surely the people’s Strictly Champion.
