He's been the surprise hit of Strictly, but after getting booted out last weekend in a dance-off with Judge Rinder, Ed Balls is back and having everyone on Good Morning Britain in stitches after revealing he loves fake tan.

As well as loving the dance routines, Ed - who was joined by his dance partner Katya Jones - was asked how he found the constant tanning, to which he replied: "I found it quite titillating. It was quite cold. I started looking like Cornwall in May and I got to Lanzarote in July."

Talking of his co-star ex Hollyoaks star Danny Mac, he added: "Danny just goes full on eight weeks in the sun."

As well as tanning, Ed, Katya and entertainment reporter Richard Arnold had everyone in hysterics as they tried out his signature Gangnam Style routine.

Richard opened his legs and clung onto Katya's arms as he pulled her through, and then Ed then attempted to help out by picking her up at the end of the routine. Needless to say it was classic morning television, and nobody got thrown into a lighting rig.

On a less physically demanding note, Katya and Ed spoke about how much they enjoyed their Strictly experience, with Katya revealing how she didn't know of Ed Balls before going on the show: "I didn't really know who he was. It was my first series and I was ready for a challenge - they definitely gave me a challenge!"

Ed added: "I had a fabulous time, she taught me so much."

They've become top mates now, and fingers crossed he comes back for a future series. Or becomes Prime Minister. Or we'll just continue watching his Gangnam Style video on YouTube every day til we die.
