Latest Celebrities Announced for Strictly Come Dancing 10th Anniversary Live Tour

Strictly Come Dancing evictee Ed Balls shook off his "sex symbol" status before showing off his "snake hips" during an appearance on Loose Women.

But whoever takes the crown this year, Len - who is judging the series for the last time thinks they will be a worthy victor.

"I hope it will be someone who has done ballroom and Latin because as good as the other judges are, I think the balance of the judges is terrific but you need one who has done ballroom and Latin and knows about heels and toes".

Strictly Come Dancing is, first and foremost, a light entertainment programme and Ed Balls entered into the spirit of the show with wholehearted enthusiasm.

Speaking to Phil and Holly, he went on say he knows he'll miss the show but he thinks it's right to go out on a high. I'm sure the answer is yes.

Following his escape from the bottom two against Balls, Judge Rinder will tackle a samba to Jersey Boys hit Oh! Ed has been up against it since the early stages of Strictly, with many claiming he shouldn't have got as far as he had in the competition.

Ed has surprised the public with his performances on "Strictly", but he has claimed he's always had an inner flamboyance just waiting to get out.

Ed lost weight during his time on the programme, but has revealed that his wife, fellow politician Yvette Cooper, is anxious how he will sustain his slimline figure.

And for me, I'd much rather go and people say "Oh Len, it's not going to be the same" rather than [people say] "thank heavens that old boy's gone, he was getting dithery"... you know? "He was so much fun!"

Former shadow chancellor Ed - who was eliminated from the dancefloor on Sunday - thinks Len's skills on the show would translate to a role in the political arena.

"The live tour means I don't have to wake up from this Strictly dream and I can't wait to travel the country with my friends and meet the fantastic audience that made our whole experience possible".
