THERESA May admitted a Strictly invite is unlikely last night after a toe-curling dance display on a visit to an African school.
The PM, 61, swayed awkwardly from side to side and bobbed up and down as she was greeted by a group of dancing pupils.
Mrs May, who was in Cape Town to announce a scholarship programme for 100 African youngsters to study in Britain, smiled and laughed throughout.
And she went on to join in with a second dance at the South African city’s I D Mkize School.
The PM, dubbed the Maybot by critics, joked: “I think the chances of Strictly Come Dancing coming calling are pretty minimal.”
And after social media users branded her “Twinkle Toes Theresa”, she quipped: “I’ve been called many things in my time.”

Later Mrs May visited Robben Island, where late President Nelson Mandela was held for 18 years during the apartheid era.
The PM also announced yesterday that Britain would “roll over” the EU’s existing free trade deal with South Africa in the wake of Brexit.
I'd give her 2 out of 10
By James Jordan, ex-Strictly dance pro
IT’S been proven that politicians have no natural rhythm. You only have to look at Ed Balls and Ann Widdecombe to see that.
Now we can add Theresa May to the list. Frankly, it was embarrassing to watch — like bad mum dancing.
But at least she gave it a go. You have to praise Theresa for trying. It would have been disrespectful if she hadn’t done it.
I’ll give her two out of ten for effort — one point for each leg.
