In August, Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove surprised clubbers when he was spotted dancing in a nightclub on a visit to his home town.
The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, 54, was spotted dancing in a dark suit with no tie at the Pipe club night in Aberdeen, with the venue posting a video on Facebook showing him throwing shapes on the dancefloor.
Adam Taylor, co-manager of Pipe, told the PA news agency: “He had incredible energy and stamina, he just kept dancing the whole night.”
Strictly Come Dancing judge, Craig Revel Horwood, even rated the politician’s moves during an appearance on Channel 5’s Jeremy Vine show.
He gave Mr Gove a three out of 10 but said he did get the maximum score possible for “enjoying himself”.

– Sir David Amess’s French bulldog crowned Westminster Dog of the Year
Sir David Amess’ dog Vivienne was crowned Westminster Dog of the Year in October.
The three-year-old French bulldog had been entered in the annual competition, which promotes responsible dog ownership, before the Conservative MP’s death by stabbing earlier that month.
As part of the entry, Sir David had said Vivienne “lifts my spirits as she is always pleased to see me and she makes me smile”.
He added: “Every time I walk into the room Vivienne throws herself at me, lies on her back with her legs in the air to be tickled.
“But before that she always brings a toy so she is of a generous, giving nature.”
Following Vivienne’s win, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Sir David “would have been very proud”.
