Strictly judge Craig Revel-Horwood rates Michael Gove's dancing as MP is filmed raving at Aberdeen club
STRICTLY Come Dancing Judge Craig Revel-Horwood rated MP Michael Gove's dance skills after he was spotted in Scottish nightclub.
The newly single Tory, 54, was filmed at an Aberdeen club at 2.30am living his best life on the dance floor before hugging other revellers.
He posed for photos with punters in an O’Neill’s pub below the club before going upstairs to check out DJ Nina Stanger’s drum-and-bass set.
Adam Taylor, manager of the club in Gove’s hometown of Aberdeen said the MP had told him ‘I LOVE dancing’.
“He spent the next 1½ hours dancing almost non-stop despite the other, paying, patrons often looking to engage him in spirited discussions about Government policies,” Adam said.
The video – which has since gone viral has sparked a lot of discussion including on Monday's episode of the Jeremy Vine show.
Strictly Come Dancing judge, Craig, was quizzed on what his impressions were of the MP's dance moves.
"I have to say, that I have to embrace people going out and enjoying themselves and dancing, no matter in what form," he started.
"He should be a little more technical if you're going to be out in public doing it."
Craig added: "The problem with his dancing is his core, there isn't a real urgency or inner rhythm there. So he's trying to compensate that with the flick of a wrist and he does that over and over again.
"I know he was out enjoying himself and for that I'd clearly give him a 10, to encourage anyone to go out there, but as a technical scenario, the only possible score I could give him is a three," he revealed as he held up one of Strictly's iconic scoring paddles.
Groover Gove was back in Aberdeen following last month’s news that he and wife Sarah Vine, mum to his two kids, are to divorce.
Emma Lament, a guest singer in the pub downstairs, told The Sun: “He turned up at O’Neill’s close to closing time.
“He had a few drinks there and was posing for photos before he decided to have a nose at the club.
“He absolutely loved the set that was being played — hard jungle and techno — and stayed until the end of the night.
“He never left the dancefloor the whole time I was there and he had plenty of moves in his locker."
Emma added: “People were buying him drinks but were also joking that he should be getting the rounds after he racked up £100,000 in expenses last year.”
A spokesman for Mr Gove refused to comment about his club night.
Fans were delighted to hear the new Strictly Come Dancing will be hitting telly screens next month.
Some big names already announced to be competing include Katie McGlynn and McFly's Tom Fletcher.
Loose Women's Judith Love and BBC's Dan Walker will also be hitting the boards on the 2021 series.
EastEnders star Rose Ayling-Ellis will also be making history by being the first deaf contestant to compete on the show.
Speaking about becoming Strictly’s first deaf contestant she said: "Finally! about time – but I can’t believe it's me that's doing it.
“I’m so, so excited and I think it will be great to break the stereotype that people think that deaf people can’t enjoy music and learn to dance – so I’d better be able to dance.
“Now it’s out there’s no going back, that’s it, I’m doing it. I’m going to be in it to be there all the way through, otherwise what is the point? the glitterball – that is what I want.
“Every time I watch it, the people on it seem to be having the best times of their lives, so why would I not want to do that?
“The cast of EastEnders are family, they’re really excited, they’re so proud of me and they’ve already been so supportive of me and I think they’re going to be really happy for me.”
Rose wants to shatter all the stereotypes of people with no hearing by taking home the glitterball.
