 ‘We were a bit upstaged. I had no idea he was even on the dance floor because I was too busy smiling for the cameras.

‘I turned to my husband and said ‘surely everyone should be sitting down by now?’

‘We were just stood there and thought it was going on for a bit too long.

 ‘The cake wasn’t even made of sponge – it was all cheese – so it wasn’t even like we had anything to cut.

‘We were both stood holding the knife and smiling for ages.

‘They’d been cheering and taking pictures for such a long time. We had no idea.

 ‘It’s a really funny video and we’ll definitely be putting the pictures in our photo album too. 

‘Jay loves YouTube and had been watching videos of people doing ‘The Floss’ dance.

‘I think he was excited and proud of himself. He’s delighted by all the attention he’s been getting.

‘He’s constantly jumping and dancing about. He loved trying to get everyone to copy him.
