Former MP Ed Balls is now set to join the Loose Women panel, after his Strictly success.

Balls will join regular panelists Andrea McLean and Nadia Sawalha as well as another Strictly star, Judge Robert Rinder, according to ITV

He has previously appeared on the programme as a guest and said: "I had a great time with the lovely Loose Women when I was on as a guest, showing them a few dance moves! So I can only imagine what mischief we will get up to with a whole hour on the panel."

The former Labour shadow chancellor was the MP for Normanton from 2005 to 2010 and for Morley and Outwood from 2010 to May 2015, when he lost his seat in the general election. 

He appeared in Strictly Come Dancing last year, dancing with professional partner Katya Jones, but the pair were voted out of the competition after 10 weeks.
