Lord of the Rings actor Andy Serkis has reprised his Theresa May-Gollum character in a fantastic video that shows the prime minister singing a Brexit-themed version of Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.

This is not a drill.

Serkis first debuted the Gollum-May hybrid before Christmas in a video showing him dressed as the PM but talking like Gollum as she spoke about the Brexit deal.

It went down particularly well with the masses.

Now, the morning after that deal was firmly rejected by MPs in a historic Commons vote that had May losing by 230, Gollum is back again dressed as the PM – but this time singing a parody of the Queen classic.

Serkis uploaded the video on Facebook, and it features a mash-up of TV appearances made by key Brexiteers, and Lord of the Rings.

The video opens with the lyrics: "Was that the right deal or was that just fantasy? Are we stuck in the Union, no article fifty?

Open your eyes, did you notice the lies or see? I’m just Theresa, I need your sympathy…

He poked at former prime minister David Cameron, too. May-Gollum sings:

David, I just switched to leave, undermined all that I said, the people’s will put that to bed. David! I was sure we’d won, but now that’s changed I’m Brexit all the way.

The latest video depicts May as an embattled leader who doesn’t know "who’s friends or foe", referencing the likes of Boris Johnson, Jacob Rees-Mogg and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The song concludes with the May-Gollum character singing: "No one really matters to me."

December’s video, which was shared by the likes of Gary Lineker and Stephen Fry, concluded with a call for a second Brexit referendum.
