BBC's Newsnight presenter closes Halloween show with Thriller dance

It’s close to..er.. 11pm.


Last night’s BBC’s current affairs show Newsnight ended with presenter Kirsty Wark wishing viewers a Happy Halloween with a performance of the thriller dance.

Not content with interviewing Cookie Monster or acknowledging their #Fails, the Newsnight crew, with help from dancers from a local theatre school, gave the show a spooky sendoff.

Our favourite bit is when you think:

No Kirsty Wark’s not going to do itm is she? Is she going to do it? SHE’S DOING IT!
