Helen Mirren showed off her impressive twerking skills during an appearance on a US chat show Live! with Kelly and Michael.

The 69-year-old was discussing the embarrassing moment she was asked to twerk while accepting Harvard University’s Hasty Pudding Award earlier this year, when she was challenged to a “twerk off” by host Michael Strahan.

Strahan described himself as a “twerking expert”, and noted that Mirren put on an “very good” performance.

“It looks so wrong but it feels so right!” Strahan admitted.

Earlier this year, Helen Mirren was awarded with the BAFTA Fellowship – read more about the award here.
