  • Theresa May Dancing Queen

Awkwardly grooving to ABBA's "Dancing Queen", May received a standing ovation from the audience as she entered the hall to give a speech. It was a nod to her much-mocked boogie during a trip to Africa earlier this year.

The prime minister's speech comes amid mounting pressure to reassert her authority just hours after one Member of Parliament signed a a letter of no confidence in her leadership.

Dismissing calls for a so-called "people's vote", the British PM said any second referendum over the issue of Brexit would be a "politicians' vote" as the people had already given their verdict in the 2016 referendum.

Theresa May drew gasps from journalists, delegates and ministers as she danced on to the stage at the Conservative Party Conference for her speech.

Theresa May today danced onto the stage to deliver her make or break speech in a bid to unite Britain and her bitterly divided party. This time she flaunted her moves on stage as she arrived at the Conservative Party conference.

Mrs May hit back at Tory critics of her Brexit plans including Jacob Rees-Mogg and Boris Johnson, who led calls at the conference for her to "chuck Chequers".
