Norwich City Chairman, Ed Balls, ended up bottom of the leaderboard once again this weekend on Strictly Come Dancing, but viewers seemed to enjoy watching his kooky cowboy take on the Charleston.
The ex-Labour MP and his Russian dance partner, Katya Jones, took to the dance floor last night to perform a quirky country-and-western routine that has since earned him the title of 'The Charleston of the Exchequer'.
Before the dance began, viewers were given a peak into Balls' preparation, where he revealed he was going to go for it 'full throttle'.
His dance to The Banjo's Back In Town may not have wowed the judges, with them only giving him a score of 23 out of a possible 40, but he certainly made a big impression upon the audience who took to social media to share their thoughts on the former Shadow Chancellor.
Jake Skellington tweeted: 'Ed Balls on Strictly is more important than Brexit' and Natalie Owens proudly proclaimed she thought Ed and Katya's perfomance was the 'dance of the night'. Not everyone was as impressed as Jake and Natalie however, as Eden Bailey said: 'Watching Ed Balls on Strictly actually feeling like maybe we are existing in some dystopian parallel universe', while Roberta Rodgers likened the dance to 'a good impression of humpty dumpty doing the Charleston'.
