Ed Balls will be hoping to book his ticket to Blackpool this weekend as he takes on a routine to Gangnam Style - a dance he already has experience in after a video went viral of his performance in 2014.
The Norwich City chairman and his partner Katya Jones will be performing a salsa to Psy's dance hit, a song which has become iconic since it was released in 2012.
The song and its famous dance moves are something that Mr Balls is very familiar with after he and his wife, Yvette Cooper, pulled out the routine at the Labour Party conference in 2014.
Speaking about the dance on Strictly - It Takes Two Mrs Jones told Zoe Ball: 'Can you get more than a salsa to Gangnam Style from Ed Balls?
'We have learnt a bit of choreography today and I told him on Saturday it is going to be epic and he didn't quite understand what I meant until today.'

Mr Balls added: 'We decided that the lift we did to the American Smooth which didn't quite work out was because it was unambitious so we decided to up it a bit.
'We are going for more.'

It comes as Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood claimed that Mr Balls could even win the BBC show.
He said: 'I'd give him D for desperate. He is entertaining but has no semblance of technique.
'But Ann Widdecombe got through to week 10, so anything is possible! I mean, he could go on to win it.'
