  • Theresa May walks on stage at Tory conference dancing “like a demented windmill”

The Prime Minister opted for a more lively entrance as she danced her way onto stage at the Tory Party conference. "If we don't, if we all go off in different directions in pursuit of our own visions of the flawless Brexit, we risk ending up with no Brexit at all", she said.

Mrs May also referenced her dancing a number of times in the speech, which focused on Britain's departure from the European Union and took aim at opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn.

British Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday turned to pop group ABBA's hit ' Dancing Queen' to deliver an upbeat Brexit message at the close of the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham.

Someone else commented: "WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED?!?!?!"

Understandably, May's moves divided opinion but the overriding reaction from users on Twitter was one of amusement.

Another added: "Her advisers must really have it in for her".

It's not the first time she's tried to poke fun at her own dance moves, either.

May's peculiar dancing style came to the forefront during her recent trip to Africa.

Painting an upbeat picture of Britain's future prospects, she urged the party to reach out to people who "still feel our economy isn't working for them".
