Boris hails Michael Gove as ‘Jon Bon Govi’ as new video shows him belting out Total Eclipse Of The Heart10/06/2021
BORIS Johnson has dubbed Michael Gove "Jon Bon Govi" as a new video shows the cabinet minister belting out Total Eclipse Of The Heart on the dance floor.
After footage emerged of the newly-single politician cutting shapes with an MP, another clip now shows the 54-year-old doing his best Bonnie Tyler impression as he sings his heart out to her 1983 anthem.
Gove can be seen grinning as he dances to a rendition of the hit, passionately waving his arms about as he sings along with his mouth wide open.
The Housing Secretary has proved himself to be somewhat of a dance fanatic in recent months – so much so that during his keynote speech today the Prime Minister hailed him "Jon Bon Govi" as Gove beamed in the audience.
He quipped that the government sent Gove – who split from his wife of 20 years, Sarah Vine, in July – to an Aberdeen nightclub to show they are safe after the Covid pandemic.
“On July 19 we decided to open every single theatre and concert hall and nightclub in England and we knew that some people would still be anxious," the PM said.
"So we sent top government representatives to our sweatiest boites de nuit to show that anyone could dance perfectly safely and wasn’t he brilliant?
"Let’s hear it for Jon Bon Govi."
Gove appears to have packed his dancing shoes for the Tory party conference, as he was spotted smiling from ear to ear as he let loose with Tonbridge and Malling MP Tom Tugendhat.
Footage shows the suited pair laughing as they take turns to spin each other to a cover version of Whitney Houston's hit I Wanna Dance With Somebody blaring out in the background.
When asked about the PM's gag about his moves by ITV News, Gove replied: "I love dancing".
Hit latest turn on the dance floor come after he was filmed raving at a techno club in his hometown of Aberdeen in August.
He posed for photos with punters in an O’Neill’s pub below the club before going upstairs to check out DJ Nina Stanger’s drum-and-bass set.
Bemused staff said he tried to swerve the £5 entry fee by saying he was Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster.
Adam Taylor, manager of the club, said: "He spent the next 1½ hours dancing almost non-stop despite the other, paying, patrons often looking to engage him in spirited discussions about Government policies.”
