Byline: Miranda Sawyer

SO there we were, the hubby and me, poised with camera and hankies at the ready, for the littl' un's debut nativity performance.

He was playing the Angel Gabriel and we burst with pride as he marched onstage in his long white robe, hands folded demurely, tinsel halo perched atop his golden locks.

Not a speaking part, you understand, but he did very well.

Until the grand finale, when all the kids stood in a line to sing We Wish You A Merry Christmas, complete with stirring hand actions (a kind of go-for-it X Factor arm-pump).

Our little angel looked distracted. Perhaps his halo was itching? He forgot the words. His formation dancing remained unformed.

Absentmindedly, he fiddled with his robe... and lifted it aloft to show the dazzled audience h i s green Ben 10 pants.

And you know what's the most annoying thing? We got it all on film and we're not allowed to send it to You've Been Framed.

Apparently, it's invading the other children's privacy.

Grrr. I want my pounds 250!
