Edxit: David Cameron among Strictly fans mourning the latest departure

He was this year's surprise hit on Strictly Come Dancing, but Ed Balls has danced his final cha-cha. 

The former Labour shadow chancellor became the 10th celebrity to leave the dancefloor this weekend, after he and partner Katya Jones failed to impress the judges with their photoshoot-inspired tango. 

It was the end of a very successful run for Ed, which saw him light up the ballroom week after week - what he lacked in technique, he more than made up for in entertainment value. Plus, who could ever forget his 'Gangnam Style' salsa? Seriously, we can't get it out of our minds. 

And former Prime Minister David Cameron was the first to lead the tributes on Twitter.

Leader of the Lib Dems Tim Fallon mourned the Edxit and called for a recount.

Professional dancer Brendan Cole called Ed and Katya his SCD 2016 champs.

Chris Evans thought Ed deserved to stay. Us too Chris.

London mayor Sadiq Khan also paid tribute.

Comedian Miranda Hart spoke for many of us - who else made us laugh this much every Saturday night?

And wife and Labour MP Yvette Cooper couldn't be more proud.

We're just gutted we'll never see this rumba.

But at least we'll always have that salsa.
