Will Ferrell shows off his dance moves on Graham Norton show
Comedy legend Will Ferrell revealed a love of dancing and took lessons from new head judge of Strictly Come Dancing, Shirley Ballas.
Ferrell was appearing on Graham Norton’s show to promote his latest movie ‘Daddy’s Home 2’.
The Irish chat star suggested that Ballas might teach him a few moves on the show.
Ferrell looked nervous and replied: “Yes, of course. But I can already tell she doesn’t believe in my ability.”
Ballas then confused Ferrell by saying they were going to do a ‘cucaracha’ but then went on to talk about the ‘rumba’
Ferrell said: “Wait, hold on, are we doing a cucaracha or a rumba?”
Ballas replied: “The action we’re going to use is a cucaracha but the dance we’re going to do is the rumba”.
Ferrell’s Daddy’s Home co-star Mark Wahlberg warned him not to get too excited down in the nether regions.
After a quick lesson Ferrell started to find his rhythm and gained a cheer from the audience.
As the dance went on Ferrell showed more confidence and the crowd – as well as Norton and his other guests – were delighted with his performance.
Take a look at the video below.
