| Last updated
A little more than one million people want to attend or are interested in going to a 'Christmas Eve Rave' at 10 Downing Street.
The joke Facebook event was kickstarted this week following allegations of an illegal Christmas party held at the office last year amid a nationwide lockdown.
Th organiser created an event called CHRISTMAS RAVE and revealed that Prime Minister Boris Johnson 'and chums' will be headlining the event.
It seems like the British public would absolutely love the idea of bringing some glow sticks, their best sesh gear and some drinks to Number 10 on December 24.
It didn't take long for hundreds of thousands of people to sign up for the event on Facebook and now it's notched the all important one million mark.
"No social distancing required," the event on Facebook says. "Bring Who you like. Bring your own Nibbles and drink."
The event has become so popular that the Met Police has even reportedly commented on it.
Someone apparently DMed @metpolice_uk about the supposed rave, writing: "Hey Guys! Giving you a heads up on a relatively small rave happening on 24th Dec at 10 Downing St.
"Feel free to turn off your body cams and scanners and get absolutely t***ted with us (we won't grass on yer)."
The Met police allegedly replied: "We have already been made aware of this. Thank you."
One user commented: "Christmas rave has had me laughing all day .. bloody brilliant love it !"
Someone else joked: "They will be there in number, it's to big a risk for them to risk it."
"I read that reply as 'Roger that, we'll be there and we'll bring the sherbet'," another added.
The hilarious Facebook event comes after Senior Downing Street staff were caught on camera joking about their alleged Christmas party in 2020 and the video has now finally been released, which has caused widespread outrage in the UK.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has apologised to the public over the video that showed staff joking about last year's alleged Christmas party.
Speaking at Prime Minister's Questions two days ago (December 7), Johnson said he understood the public's outrage at the clip, and that he was 'furious' himself.
He also said that a full internal investigation would be conducted into what happened, and those found to have acted inappropriately would face consequences.
