Who was most in the Halloween spirit last night? Kirsty Wark, of course, who ended Newsnight with a zombie dance to Thriller, accompanied by backing dancers from Tiffany Theatre College. Wark is, of course, a woman accustomed to performing alongside people with terrible hairdos without losing her cool, having shot to prominence following a difficult interview with Margaret Thatcher in 1990.
Opinions about the performance were almost universally positive:
Some slightly more so than others…
No word yet on whether Paxman will twerk next week.
Judge Wark’s performance for yourself below.
