Ed Balls is on FIRE at Strictly Come Dancing 2016's Blackpool special


Ed Balls made quite the entrance at Strictly Come Dancing 2016's Blackpool special this evening.

It was the latest live show as the remaining seven dancers took to the ballroom once again.

But this week was the Blackpool special with all the couples performing live at the iconic Tower Ballroom.

Ed and pro partner Katya Jones danced Jive to 'Great Balls of Fire’ by Jerry Lee Lewis, starting the routine by dropping from the ceiling on a flaming piano.

But what did the judges have to say?

Bruno Tonioli said: "Well I've already booked a shrink to recover from Ed Balls syndrome. You are strangely addictive but to my surprise most of it looked like a Jive."

Craig Revel Horwood added: "It looked like you were playing hopscotch. You need to be a lot lighter on your feet but you are committed and that is brilliant."

Len Goodman concluded: "You're getting better. Last week 8th, the worst you're going to be this week is 7th... you made Blackpool rock!"

When it came to the scores, Ed got a four from Craig, a six from Darcey, a seven from Len and a six from Bruno.

Will it be enough to keep the pair in the competition and see them through to next weekend?

As always, the judges' scores from tonight's dances will be combined with the results of the public vote to help determine the bottom two dancers in Sunday's results show.

Those two celebrity couples will have to dance again for the judges in Sunday night's results show at 7:15PM on BBC One where one of them will be eliminated.
