Wrong.

It would appear that NBC Nightly News, while running a piece on the flu risk over the winter period, ran a picture of the former Labour leader blowing his nose.

The piece quickly cut to the main video on nasal sprays and vaccines, but eagle-eyed viewers were quick to pick up on Ed's brief appearance.

We're not sure whether the image was used in jest or if it was a genuine mistake, but one thing is certain... People are enjoying it on Twitter.

There will certainly be more where these came from.

Maybe this could lead to a whole host of Ed Miliband 'stock shots'?
