Many Canaries regulars stayed away for today’s FA Cup clash with Southampton, but the attendance was swelled by two new faces at Carrow Road.

Norwich City chairman Ed Balls invited his Strictly Come Dancing partner Katya Jones and her dancer husband Neil to the clash.

And she tweeted a selfie of the trio enjoying the game, saying: “2-2 after all!! Love watching @NorwichCityFC live!!!on the ball city!! Thank you @edballs for the invite #strictly”

The 12,479 who did head to the FA Cup third round game, saw a 2-2 draw, with unlikely penalty taker Steven Whittaker equalising after Saints defender Virgil van Dijk gave the visitors the lead.

Fellow Scot Steven Naismith then grabbed a late equaliser for the Canaries, after Maya Yoshida’s header had put the Premier League side in front.
