Ed Balls in for some 'hard training' as dance pro Katya whips him into shape

Updated: 

Ed Balls has admitted he might find the Strictly steps pretty "challenging" - but he isn't afraid of some hard graft.

Speaking at the TV Choice Awards, the former shadow chancellor confessed his time on the dancefloor might not be all plain-sailing, as his professional dance partner Katya Jones giggled.

But he said Katya would set him straight, and she vowed to give Ed some "hard training".

The pair gave photographers a little peek of what might be to come on the dancefloor, as they posed for photos at the awards do in London.
