A Conservative minister has been given a pink glittery unicorn as a secret Santa present.
David Gauke was given the gift after he compared a 'managed no-deal' Brexit scenario to a 'unicorn that needs to be slaughtered'.
The justice secretary revealed the gift on Twitter - but did not disclose whether he has killed it in the way he suggested earlier in the week.
The Tory MP tweeted a photograph of himself with a bemused look as he held the unicorn.
The photograph was captioned: 'An unexpected Christmas gift'.
