'Strictly Come Dancing' star Ed Balls has challenged Lord Sugar to a dance off after the 'Apprentice' star criticised his dance moves
Ed Balls has challenged Lord Sugar to a dance off.
The former Labour MP is currently taking part in 'Strictly Come Dancing' and while the nation is loving the effort Ed is putting in, the 'Apprentice' star is not a fan.
During Ed's Cha Cha Cha performance on Saturday (29.10.16), Lord Sugar tweeted: "@bbcstrictly Ed Balls dances with the grace of a drunk giraffe ....give it up mate."
But when Zoe Ball read out the tweet to Ed on 'Strictly' spine-off show 'It Takes Two', the 49-year-old politician replied: "If Lord Sugar thinks he can teach me to do it better, that's fine.
He continued: "Any night he wants to come on 'It Takes Two', I'll challenge him. We can do a New York, we can do a Charleston spin...
"Get him on. If he can do better than me then I'll back down. Until then put your money where your mouth is."
Zoe then told the business mogul: "Show us the colour of your money, sir."
Earlier this week, Ed told BANG Showbiz that he wanted to stay on the show for at least another month to lose more weight.
Ed - who is partnered with Katya Jones and has already lost 14lbs so far - said: "I'm trimming down, I've got quite a long way to go but there's definitely some progress, I need to be there for another month.
"Eight hours of training a day and if I get it wrong she tells me to do it again, do it again."
Despite Ed and Katya nearly always ending up at the bottom the leaderboard, they have yet to be in the dreaded dance-ff as the public keep voting them through.
