“Theresa May coming on to Dancing Queen at the Tory Party Conference took some balls. It is actually one of my favourite songs – when you hear it, you have to get up and you cannot stop dancing. I like the awkwardness of the image, because it’s like she’s doing dad dancing even though she’s a lady. I think she was trying to embrace her fun side, but I’m not sure it totally came off.
