Former timelord David Tennant shared the stage with DJ Christian O'Connell when he played the Virgin Mary in an alternative take on the nativity story.

The actor, soon to star in BBC drama The Spies Of Warsaw, was joined by former Arsenal footballer Ian Wright and singer Newton Faulkner for the performance on Christian's Absolute Radio show.

The DJ played Joseph, with Ian starring as a dinosaur midwife, in the performance.

The three wise men were played by a trio of David's fans who won a competition to co-star with him.

Next year will see him team up with another former Doctor Who star when he appears in ITV drama Broadchurch with Arthur Darvill.

Arthur, who played Rory in the sci-fi show, will star as a priest while David plays a detective investigating a murder in a small town.
