If Jeremy Hunt finds himself out of a job by the end of the week, it appears he does have one surprising skill he can fall back on.
According to Michael Gove, the culture secretary is a "fantastic dancer" and is a particularly superb Latin American dancer.
"His Lambada is something amazing, he also has a sprung dance floor in his house in London to enable him to practice," the education secretary told BBC Radio 4 on Sunday night.
"If you ever want anyone to liven up your party by cutting the rug with dash and distinction, then Jeremy's the one to invite."
The culture secretary is of course not the only politician to be a keen dancer. Business secretary Vince Cable has a passion for the foxtrot, a skill he showed off on a Christmas edition of Strictly Come Dancing in 2010.
While former shadow home secretary Ann Widdecombe gained fame outside the Westminster bubble in the same year when she took part in the show.
And of course who could forget then business secretary Peter Mandelson's "quite sensual" turn on a Blackpool dance floor in the run-up to the 2010 general election.
Asked recently whether he had ever imitated the prime minister played by Hugh Grant in the romantic comedy Love Actually and danced around No.10, David Cameron said he had "never danced in the state rooms in Downing Street".
However he said what he got up to in the flat he shares with his family above No.11 Downing Street was "private".
