Look at my charm and charisma, you can pick it up like this.

An updated version of Han's Christian Anderson's fable, The Emporer's New Clothes is to be updated for a new show at this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival - Matt Hancock's Charisma.

Students Felicity Finknottle and her boyfriend Oliver Tallbloke have changed the story, as the nudity in the original was a trigger, without realising that the character of Matt Hancock is even more likely to put a few people off.

Speaking about the show Finknottle told us 'It seems like such a jape, a month in Scotland, pedalling this show before spending another year working in an office so we can afford to do the same thing next year'.

The story will see the imaginary Emporer's clothes being replaced by the even more imaginary charisma of Matt Hancock.

'It is a far-fetched idea' said Tallbloke 'but all of the best ones are'.

A spokesman for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival said 'We already have 11 shows about Matt Hancock lined up, so one more isn't going to make any difference is it?'

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
