The Scots leader made the deal with Scots social media star Jared Rowan on a group Zoom chat with Scottish content creators last night.

Jared, 21, had initially asked Nicola Sturgeon what her victory dance would be if she won the Scottish election next week.

Sturgeon mocked her own dance moves while giving a sly dig to Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross for being “cringe” when saying his song would be Atomic Kitten hit Whole Again.

However, although she didn’t disclose what victory dance song she would use, Sturgeon did agree to learn a victory dance if Jared composed it.

The 50-year-old said she would learn the dance and “may” even record a TikTok video of it.

Jared, from Stranraer, Dumfries and Galloway, posted a snippet of the conversation onto his TikTok and Twitter yesterday.

He captioned the Twitter video: “Me and my pal Nicola on the Zoom.”

The video shows Jared asking: “So my question is, Dougie Ross was asked if it came to a dance-off for second place what his choice of song would be and that was Whole again by Atomic Kitten.

“When it comes to us winning, what is your victory dance song going to be?”

Sturgeon replied “Jared or Littlest Chicken, you don’t want to see me dance, you really really don’t.

“That Dougie Ross thing with Atomic Kitten…I mean talk about cringe.

“I mean seriously that guy needs help or better advice or something.

“I’m going to try to avoid that.

“How about for our victory I get you to compose something special and then I will learn to dance to it, then we will see where that takes us?

“I can maybe even do a TikTok of it!”

Delighted by the proposal, Jared responded: “Brilliant, I’ll hold you to that.”
