The former 'Strictly Come Dancing' contestants - who were given the boot from the ballroom and latin competition just before the final - will join regulars Andrea McLean and Nadia Sawalha this week for the third installment of 'Loose Women & Men'.

Ahead of his appearance, the 49-year-old politician said: "I had a great time with the lovely 'Loose Women' when I was on as a guest - showing them a few dance moves! So I can only imagine what mischief we will get up to with a whole hour on the panel."

And there will certainly be outrageous comments and wild antics as the television barrister is determined to give motormouth Janet Street-Porter a run for her money.

He said: "I am very much looking forward to being on the panel. You can expect me to be thoroughly forthright, so much so, I'll make Janet Street-Porter seem like Pollyanna!"

The outspoken foursome will debate the hot topics of the day and share their personal experiences and stories as they'll be joined by special guests throughout the episode.

'Loose Women' Editor, Sally Shelford has said: "Only a few very special men have what it takes to be on the 'Loose Women' panel, but Ed Balls and Judge Rinder have proven they are more than up to the challenge. Fun, feisty and not afraid to speak their minds, they survived the 'Strictly....' judges, but will they survive their fellow 'Loose Women' panellists? Expect some fiery debates, a few surprises, and lots of laughs."
