In terms of the ultimate in cringe-worthy events, there’s dad dancing – and then there’s Boris Johnson performing a rendition of Jessie J’s Bang Bang.

No doubt a dad-dancing connoisseur himself, the father-of-five gave it his all as he appeared as a guest on the Capital breakfast show on Tuesday morning to talk about London’s New Year’s Eve fireworks display.

Having heard the original singer perform the hit at the radio station’s Jingle Bell Ball over the weekend, the 50-year-old took to the microphone, is spectacles perched at the end of his nose.

He chanted:

“Bang bang, into the room, I know you want it.[Let’s get this party started.]

“Bang, bang, into the room, I know you want it.

“Bang, bang, all over you, I’ll let you have it, [crikey!]

“Wait a minute, let me take you there, ah, ah, ah,

“Bang bang there goes your heart I know you want it… back back seat of my car, I’ll let you have it.”

Now wash your ears, brains and eyes and let’s never speak of this again.
