It was only going to be a matter of time before the rumours started following ’s exit from Number 10.

The Prime Minister following a series of resignations from fellow Tory party members and after months of various Scan**ls.

However, the UK is entering as the PM has not resigned with immediate effect and until a new one is selected.

As the UK prepares to have have its fourth prime minister in just six years, we’re left to question what that means for Johnson… might he have his eyes on the glitter ball trophy? Hey, stranger things have happened!

Turns out, the odds of the former London mayor appearing on the next series of the hit BBC show are 40/1, following Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice’s triumph last year.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: ‘We’re already turning our attention to Boris Johnson’s next move and with his inbox likely to be full of offers, there’s the slimmest of chances he finds himself on Strictly later this year.’

Johnson wouldn’t be the first politician to get down on the dancefloor, oh no, as the Strictly ballroom has had its fare share of MPs.

Who could forget Ed Balls, the former secretary of state for children, schools and families, and former shadow chancellor?

The writer and broadcaster was partnered with Katya Jones in 2016 and , such as that performance of Gangnam Style.

However, he left the show after three months as, despite receiving a wealth of support from the voting public, he met his match in the form of the cha cha cha.

MP Ann Widdecombe also took part in the series with fan favourite pro Anton Du Beke in 2010, keeping viewers entertained all the way into week 10.

The politician received some pretty harsh criticism from the panel – especially from Mr Nasty, Craig Revel Horwood – but against Scott Maslen of EastEnders.

So, might we see Boris doing the Charleston later this year? Or a waltz? Perhaps a samba is more his thing? Or maybe he’ll whip out his favourite dance moves from work events?

Time will tell but, for now, the PM has left critics outraged after not making a swift departure from Downing Street,  with Labour threatening to push for a Commons vote to force him out sooner, as he could remain in situ for several months.
