Ed Balls performed Gangnam Style for mere seconds, but it was enough to remind Strictly fans why they love him

Ore Oduba might have won Strictly Come Dancing 2016, but it was the return of former Labour MP Ed Balls that got people on Twitter talking.

Why, you ask? Well, it might have had something to do with Gangnam Style. The popular contestant returned for a group dance during the final, and briefly stole the show with a nod to one of his previous dances.

For some, Strictly 2016 has been all about Balls.

And for those people, there was probably a bit of disappointment that he wasn’t front and centre for longer in the group dance.

Sports Personality of the Year anybody? World number one tennis player and Wimbledon champion Andy Murray might have something to say about that.

The year has been a disappointing one for many, but Ed dancing to Gangnam Style was out of this world.

It must be love.

Ed Balls.
