If you ever caught the eye of a fellow commuter and wondered how to take it to the next level here's your chance.

Sprigs of mistletoe have been attached to handrails on several trains on the Northern and Victorian Line of the London Underground Network, much to the amusement of stereotypical po-faced travellers.

There are no reports of kissing yet, however we will continue to monitor the situation closely.

The romantic pranksters have set up a website which carries the message:

"We wanted to bring some Christmas cheer to one of the most miserable places in the capital.

"So we put love on the line and created #mistletube.

"Merry Christmas London," it read.

While commuters have been quick to share images of the festive classic on social media, they have not complied with tradition and puckered up for a kiss.
