Ed Balls to tango to the Rolling Stones' Satisfaction

Ed Balls will be showing off his moves to the Rolling Stones’ (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction on the next instalment of Strictly Come Dancing.

The former shadow chancellor – who lit up the dancefloor with his chirpy Gangnam Style a couple of weeks ago – will be tangoing to the popular track with his professional partner Katya Jones.

And he’ll be hoping to satisfy both the judges and the public, to stay in with a shot at the coveted glitterball trophy.

Gymnast Claudia Fragapane and her pro partner AJ Pritchard will also be serving up a tango, dancing to Justin Timberlake’s Cry Me A River.

Danny Mac and Oti Mabuse will be strutting their stuff to Magalenha by Sergio Mendes, in what should be a sizzling samba, and Judge Rinder and Oksana Platero will be giving the rumba a spin to Lean On Me by Bill Withers.

Louise Redknapp and Kevin Clifton are set to demonstrate their skills with a waltz to At This Moment, by Canadian pop star Michael Buble.

And Ore Oduba and Joanne Clifton will be dancing the paso doble to Everybody Wants To Rule The World by Lorde.

This week the remaining couples will also compete in the Cha Cha Challenge, to earn valuable extra points from the judges.

We’re counting down the days!
