BBC newsreaders have reenacted controversial Prodigy video Smack My Bitch Up for the Children In Need appeal. 

The team admit that it is not the kind of thing the public are used to seeing newsreaders doing but that filming it was tremendous fun.

Huw Edwards said: “We follow the tequila-swilling, coke-snorting protagonist to a nightclub where they shove their hand up the minidress of Sophie Raworth before punching me, as the DJ, in the face.

“Evan Davis plays the man thrown out of the toilet mid-crap so our character can shoot smack, before heading to a strip club.

“There are dances from Louise Minchin and Dan Walker, the Breakfast team, before the hero picks up leopardskin-clad Kate Silverton, steals a car and heads home for a lengthy POV sex scene.

“Then Kate leaves, the nude protagonist looks in the mirror and we realise it was Fiona Bruce all along.

“We hope it’ll bring in lots of money for Pudsey.”

Tom Logan, from Hitchin, said: “Jesus, it’s the same shit every single year.”
