Theresa May dusted off her famous 'Maybot' moves again today as she joined in a dance with a group of Scouts while on the final leg of her African tour.

The British Prime Minister strutted her stuff as she was presented with a band and a group of dancers after touring a UN building in Kenya today.

She faced ridicule after awkwardly dancing with schoolchildren on the first her tour in South Africa this week.

Theresa May copied some of the scouts' moves but with not quite as much grace.

But she has shrugged off the mockery and joined in the fun again - adding a new poking swimming motion to her moves.

The PM copied the scouts' moves - twirling around as they did as the band played on in the background.

Asked about her dancing earlier this week, May - whose favourite song is Dancing Queen by Abba - laughed off criticisms and said: "I suspect my dancing this morning might not make it on to Strictly."

May also tried her hand at ten pin bowling and did some keepy-uppies with a plastic football while on the trip.

After the dancing break she was given a demonstration on how to reuse plastics.

Locals showed her how bags and bottles can be made into everyday items like balls, dolls, a dolls house, a dress and tennis rackets.

She then bowled a ball at nine plastic bottles, achieving a strike. "That's better than I normally do," she said.

Eagle-eyed Twitter users were quick to spot the latest dance video, and joked that the PM looks like Peter Crouch when he does his famous robot dance goal celebration.

Tim Garbutt - who has stood for the election as an independent - wrote on Twitter: "PM May channelling her inner Peter Crouch football robot dance. And dancing around her imaginary handbag? Rocking it. Time for Change."

And Twitter user Patrick, a young Tory activist, wrote: "Theresa May cannot be tamed! I suggest dancing onto the stage at party conference to 'I will survive'."

The British Prime Minister is in Africa for a three-day charm offensive to drum up support for trade with Britain post-Brexit.

Earlier today she talked about the close security and trading ties Britain has with Kenya as she appeared alongside the country's President Uhuru Kenyatta at a press conference.

Striking an upbeat tone in Kenya as she wrapped up a continent-wide tour stumping for free trade, May said she wanted a "good relationship with the EU while having the freedom to negotiate trade deals".

She rejected criticism from her former chief of staff Nick Timothy, insisting her deal would mean Britain ending free movement and leaving EU institutions.

The Premier denied she was setting Britain on a track to be a 'vassal state' that follows EU rules without helping to set them.

She said: "Chequers delivers on the Brexit vote. It does it in a way that I believe is good for the UK.

"Obviously, we are in negotiations with the European Union, but I believe our proposals are not just good for the UK, but they are good for the EU as well."

May added the Chequers plan offers economic flexibility, saying: "It ensures that we can maintain a good trading relationship with the EU while having the freedom to negotiate trade deals on our own behalf around the rest of the world."
