TRAVELS IN TRUMPLAND
"a Lycra-clad quest to understand the US" The Guardian
"There are some things you never, ever want to see again. Ed Balls in a leotard is certainly one. But, aesthetics aside, the former shadow chancellors venture into the howling, moronically fake sport that is American wrestling... made its point well." The Telegraph
" 'A second Trump presential term is a real possibility': Ed Balls visits the deep south to meet Donald Trump's core voters" Radio Times
eD'S dREAM DINNER PARTY
Ed Balls hosts a gathering with a twist. All his guests are from beyond the grave, longtime heroes brought back to life by the wonders of the radio archive.
Ed is joined by former chancellor Denis Healey, comedy legend Les Dawson, feminist pioneer Nancy Astor, Hollywood great Danny Kaye and others, for half an hour of mesmerising and unexpected conversation. They talk with him and with each other about everything from politics to cookery and from playing the piano to overcoming insecurity - illuminating a series of great lives, as well as the triumphs and vulnerabilities of a man who has gone from suffering rejection at the ballot box to becoming an unlikely national treasure via the Strictly dance floor.
STRICTLY COME DANCING
In 2016 Ed wowed the nation and was dubbed 'The People's Champion' after an extraordinary response to his performance in BBC's Strictly Come Dancing. His memorable performance of Gangnam Style with partner Katya Jones was nominated for the 2017's Virgin's Must See Moment BAFTA Award.
