Ed Balls Gave Janet Street Porter A Dance Lesson On 'Loose Women' And We Can't Even


Just when you thought everything that could possibly happen in 2016 had already happened, along come Ed Balls and Janet Street Porter.

While Ed was the stand out star of this year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, the last thing we were expecting to see next was him twirling around with the ‘Loose Women’ panellist - yet somehow, here we are.

<strong>Yes, this was a thing that actually happened</strong>

The former Labour MP unleashed some of his trademark moves as he gave Janet and co-host Ruth Langsford a dance lesson during Wednesday’s (30 November) edition of the ITV daytime show.

After walking them through some cha cha steps, he then gave them a tutorial of how to do his infamous ‘Gangnam Style’ routine.

Let’s just say we don’t think ‘Strictly’ bosses will be knocking on JSP’s door any time soon.

Ruth, on the other hand, totally smashed it, but then we expected that given the amount of times she’s shown us her fancy footwork.

Ed was eliminated from the ‘Strictly’ ballroom on Sunday, when he lost the dance off to Judge Rinder, after 10 controversial weeks in the competition.

However, he’s not hanging up his dancing shoes just yet, as he is one of this year’s celebrities who is confirmed for next year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ arena tour.

“Going on tour is going to be another first for me and I plan to give it everything I’ve got for the audiences across the country,” he said in a statement.

We. Can’t. Wait.

Loose Women’ airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV, while ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ continues on Saturday at 7pm on BBC One.
