If people want to keep me in, I'm going to stay in and do my best. I know what that's like." Labour MP Ed Miliband recently praised Balls and even went as far as deeming him a "national treasure".

Speaking to Derbyshire last week Miliband said: "He's brilliant isn't he.

"As a politician, I do know that, in the end, it's the public who decide.

Tuesday night saw BBC Breakfast’s weather presenter Carol Kirkwood to scoop a TRIC (Television and Radio Industries Club) award for her meteorological know-how, beating Good Morning Britain’s Laura Tobin – much to the chagrin of GMB host Piers Morgan.

Describing the award as going to "somebody from a rival show that nobody watches", Morgan joked that "the winner was someone that is universally reviled around the world isn't she?

Balls attempted to recreate the Paso Doble he danced on Saturday night with the BBC weather girl.

Balls whisked Kirkwood off her feet as he swirled her around the studio.

The BBC has announced that there will be no punishment for popular weather presenter Carol Kirkwood’s use of the phrase ‘cold as fuck.’ She used the phrase during an outside broadcast on a hill in the North York Moors on Friday morning in response to a question from colleague Bill Turnbill.

“And now to Carol for the weather,” said the avuncular bee-keeper.

star Carol Kirkwood has revealed that she nearly giggled her way through the paso doble.

The BBC Weather presenter - who picked up her highest score of the series for her paso - admitted that it was tough to get into character for the moody dance."Just before we went on to the floor, [my partner] Pasha [Kovalev] came up while the VT was playing, took my head in his hands and said, 'Do not smile, do not laugh for the next 90 seconds'," she said on . But then just looking at him because he was so 'grr' all the way through it, that really helped."And Carol revealed that she "really enjoyed" the dance, adding: "I think that was the first time I felt I was actually doing something because it was so alien to my normal life and my normal face."She also revealed that she was thrilled when Craig Revel Horwood noted an improvement in her dancing, saying: "You tend to think, 'This isn't going to happen, there's another 2 coming our way', and then when he said, "Great improvement', it was like, 'Yes! '"But now Carol and Pasha are moving on to the Viennese Waltz - and Carol admitted that it's making her head spin."It's lovely," she said. [But] all the spins in it do make you a bit dizzy, especially when we do hundreds of them, one after the other after the other after the other.

" "That's not entirely true," said co-host Susanna Reid. "But we love you more Laura - you've won the popular vote, you are the Hilary Clinton of the whole operation." And that might have been the end of it, were it not for BBC Breakfast’s Walker deciding to stick up for his own colleague, describing her as a “queen” and taking a dig at Good Morning Britain’s viewing figures.

BBC Breakfast presenter Naga Munchetty has defended Carol Kirkwood after the Scot was called a 'ridiculous parasite' by a troll on Twitter.

Kirkwood praised Balls and told him: “Oh my word you’re a strong man.
