So, nothing to see here - just the BBC Newsroom hard at work on Christmas Day.

Viewers of BBC News got a little surprise when they tuned in last night to see staff dancing around a Christmas tree ahead of a live broadcast.

BBC World Journalist Mike Hills subsequently tweeted a vine showing the opening credits and staff members dancing.

"Nothing to see here. Just a serious newsroom hard at work on Christmas," he posted.

The vine quickly went viral - with many viewers saying it gave them a laugh on Christmas Day.

Another two images were posted later on - one of a stuffed bear in the newsroom holding some biscuits and a mug.

The second was a snapshot of the newsroom wishing people a Happy Christmas.
