Shrek's Father In Law. The Frog Prince

BBC viewers under the age of five were sent into an excited state of shock last night after realising that this years' series of Stargazing live is being presented by Shrek and Donkey.

The realisation was made by a 3 year old boy called Josh on Monday night after he pointed at his TV screen and said "Shrek...Donkey".

After a few seconds, of TV scrutinizing, the child's parents corrected him by saying "No. Dara O'Briain, Professor Brian Cox".

But the child refused to be convinced and when he went to nursery today, all his friends agreed with him, the BBC Stargazing team do look like the dynamic duo from the Disney films.

Disney Pixar refused to comment, but their legal team are currently at work to see if they can sue the BBC for copyright violations.

The BBC however, say. "If it makes children watch our educational space programme we'll consider asking Dara and the Prof if they'd like to change their names"

Professor Brian Cox, refused to comment but Dara said "No. I don't want to be Shrek. He looks like Wayne Rooney."
