- Former Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls was snapped at a Trump party
- The Strictly star was there as part of his new documentary on the US south
- The event was held at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida
Ed Balls was snapped partying at a Trump anniversary event with two staunch supporters of the President.
The previous Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer was at the exclusive event at the Mar-a-Lago resort filming for his new documentary Ed Balls: My Deep South Road Trip.

President Trump himself was unable to attend his own party due to the budget crisis.
Balls had been interviewing two trump fans Tina Hillstrom and Toni Holt Kramer, founder of the Trumpettes USA.
In an Instagram post, Hillstrom uploaded a picture of the three of them with the caption: 'BBC interview Ed Balls. Tina & Toni Holt Kramer changing the way women talk politics'.
Confused people took to Twitter to air their puzzlement over what was going on. One said: 'I assume this isn't Ed Balls living it up at Mar-a-Lago but whoever it is looks worryingly like him'.

The former Shadow Chancellor photographed with Trumpette Sher Kasun. Tickets for one couple to attend the event in Palm Beach, Florida, cost $1,000 (£716)
Another added: 'I thought this was photoshopped. What is Ed Balls doing at Mar-a-Lago? How to lose any remaining credibility you may have once had'.
Speaking about his show, Ed Balls said: 'It's one thing to swap being a politician for reality TV and embarrass your family in the process. It's quite another thing to swap reality TV for the US Presidency and turn the world upside down.
'I've always loved visiting the American south - the food and the music are fabulous and there's so much to learn from its history. But I was as shocked as anyone else by the way the south helped sweep Trump to victory.
'So I'm looking forward to visiting the communities at the heart of the Trump revolution, getting to know the voters who elected him and finding out what they think of him one year on.'
