Kylie Minogue and Robbie Williams have joined an all-star line-up to record a reading of classic festive poem 'Twas The Night Before Christmas.

The pop stars were joined by British musician Richard Hawley, former The Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, and Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones, who took it in turns to narrate passages from Clement Clarke Moore's popular poem.

Downton Abbey star Hugh Bonneville started the reading and comedian/actor Ricky Gervais added a lighter tone to the final lines of the poem by voicing Santa.

Hawley and Marr took to their respective pages to alert fans to the holiday treat, sharing links to a page on the Bbc's website where the reading can be heard.
