Norwich City chairman Ed Balls has created a Strictly Come Dancing inspired doodle for national charity Epilepsy Action.

The drawing includes the quote 'somebody stop me' which refers to The Mask themed samba dance the former shadow chancellor performed while on the BBC One show.

The doodle will be auction off for the charity along with those done by a other famous faces including Miranda Hart, Eleanor Tomlinson and Fay Ripley.

Xanthe Hopkinson, doodler in residence at Epilepsy Action, said: 'Every year we are overwhelmed with support from celebrities, and always look forward to seeing their creations. There are no rules when it comes to doodles - this is an event that really lets their imaginations fly.'

National Doodle Day is on Friday September 22 and the proceeds from the three-day eBay auction directly support the 600,000 people living with epilepsy in the UK.
