We're more used to seeing Stephen Nolan and Gregory Campbell at loggerheads - but here they are as we've never seen them before.

As part of this year's Children in Need's fundraising efforts, BBC Northern Ireland have called on some of our best known faces from the world of politics for an epic lip synching video.

The hilarious video raises questions that a few of our politicians could have missed their calling in life as 'singers' or even dancers as Mairtin O'Muilleoir complete with sunglasses, Basil McCrea and Gregory Campbell among others showcase some serious moves.

Stephen Nolan gives them a run for their money too as he sits at his infamous desk and mimes along to the Cee Lo Green hit Forget You.

But true to form, as he is used to keeping our politicians in order on a daily basis he takes control of the video mid-song as he requests they play something "manly" that he would like.

Before requesting Build Me Up Buttercup.
