Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls plays the piano for Jeremy Vine

Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls is practising for grade three piano exams. He debuted his skills on Jeremy Vine's programme on Radio 2.

His opposite number George Osborne recently teased him in the Commons, asking if he shouldn't be practising Chopsticks. "With a surname like mine you get pretty used to being teased" replied Mr Balls.

The Jeremy Vine Show is broadcast Monday to Friday at 12:00 BST on BBC Radio 2. Or listen again via the link.
