It's the wrong Joseph, Gromit

Boy acts in nativity play dressed as Stalin

A 12-year-old schoolboy turned up for his nativity play dressed up as Stalin after mixing up his Josephs.

Ilya Gavrichenko, of St Petersburg in Russia, went home and told his parents that he had landed the role of Joseph Stalin.

They got him a uniform and moustache to make him look like the former Soviet dictator and he looked the part.

The mistake wasn't realised until the day of the play by which time it was too late.

With no replacement outfit available, Ilya went out dressed as Joseph Stalin instead of Joseph of Nazareth.

"We even got him a perfect moustache," his father, Fedor, said. "We were all ready for him to be a success.

"Each time he went out on stage, the mothers were in hysterics, crying and yowling from somewhere under their chairs.
