Theresa May made an upbeat start to her keynote speech to the Tory Party conference by shimmying on stage to Abba’s Dancing Queen.
Mocking the dance moves she made during a recent visit to Africa, which went viral, the Prime Minister arrived in the hall throwing some shapes as the crowd cheered.
Mrs May’s speech last year was beset by a series of disasters – a prankster served her with a joke P45, she suffered a coughing fit and the letters on the set behind her fell off as she ploughed on with her address.
The PM told Tory activists: “Can I just say, you will have to excuse me if I cough during the speech.
“I’ve been up all night super-gluing the backdrop.”
