Strictly Come Dancing 2016: Ed Balls CONFIRMED!


Former MP Ed Balls have been confirmed for BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing 2016.


Ed Balls has been confirmed as the first celebrity to join this year’s Strictly Come Dancing line-up.

Ed confirmed the news on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2 this week.

He revealed: “I would love to say that I’m really looking forward to enjoying it, but I’m a bit scared to death,

“Making a speech in Parliament seems a piece of cake compared to this, but hopefully I can stick around for a couple of weeks, and have a lot of fun in the process.

“Strictly is a firm favourite in our living room, and it feels like a dream to be going on myself, especially for Len’s last series. I’m just hoping it doesn’t turn into a nightmare too quickly!”

Following Ed’s announcement the official Twitter account for Strictly confirmed the news, by tweeting: “Ed Balls”.

More celebrity contestants for the new series of Strictly will be announced soon.
