‘Strictly Come Dancing’: Ed Balls And Danny Mac’s Bromance Is Our New Favourite Thing

We are very big fans of this.

‘Strictly Come Dancing’ has brought us many glorious things this year, but now it’s time for the Ed Balls and Danny Mac bromance to take centre stage.

We are so ready for this.

The ‘Strictly’ pair were both on the red carpet at the Pride Of Britain Awards on Monday (31 October) night, and while we were chatting to Danny, it wasn’t long before Ed cropped up in conversation.

The duo (very) briefly pondered the question before announcing Ed as their favourite 'Strictly' star 

When asked which of his fellow dancers he enjoys watching most, without hesitation, Danny replied: “Ed Balls!

“He is my hero, I said it once and I’ll say it again, I love Ed Balls. He is what ‘Strictly’ is about.”

“I don’t know if Ed feels the same!” he continued, joking: “In fact I think he might have a restraining order out on me…”

Well Danny, we can confirm that the feeling is definitely mutual. 

“Danny is a beautiful dancer and he has amazing style,” Ed told us later. “He’s the only one, out of all us, who when he dances, the professionals gasp.

Danny and his partner Oti Mabuse also took the opportunity to defend the judges, who were accused of scoring him a little too harshly at the weekend.

“I think the judges are always fair, always honest and they tell the truth,” Oti said. “It is a personal opinion so what they say is literally what they see.”
