The news at the moment is stressful enough without Huw Edwards turning everything upside down – but that’s exactly what he’s done. The BBC newsreader left “Huws At Ten” fans shaken and disturbed during a broadcast this week when he abandoned his signature pose in a deliberate response to a spoof Twitter account.

- Real-life BBC exec given damning leaving speech by W1A’s Neil Reid

You get the picture. It’s one thing you can rely on in this uncertain world.

It just looks… it just looks WRONG, doesn’t it?
@HuwsAtTen Crikey – what happened on 29th? Is this the end of the world? Perhaps it's to distract Trump. The Huwosphere is in meltdown now…

Hopefully he’ll return to his signature pose before long and then everything can get back to normal.
