Ed Balls will be channelling Zoolander on Strictly Come Dancing 2016 tonight.

The politician has made it into the top six of this year's contest despite his dancing being described as "technically terrible" by the judges.

Ed has faced some calls to QUIT the show but he's vowed not to step down.

Speaking on It Takes Two yesterday, Ed said: "We're just looking forward to the next dance and trying to do our best every week.

"I was not the best dancer in the beginning, I've never done it before. We've tried really hard and we're trying to get better every week and entertain.

"In the end if the public want us to come back, we'll keep coming back."

This weekend, Ed and Katya will be dancing the Tango to '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction’ by The Rolling Stones

Katya declared: "It's looking really good."

And Ed teased: "It's a bit wild. It's quite a mix.

"We're doing the tango but I'm also being a male model. I'm channelling a bit of Zoolander an it includes a Catwalk challenge."

We can only begin to imagine what the pair have up their sleeves...

The remaining six couples will return to the dancefloor on Saturday 26th November at 7pm with the results show on Sunday 27th November at 7.20pm on BBC One.
