There have been some famous dance-offs down the years - the Jets and the Sharks in Westside Story, Austin Powers and Britney Spears in Goldmember, and Stifler's nightclub outing in American Pie 3: The Wedding.

They have joined in the coronavirus lockdown craze of choreographing short dance routines on social media - just like West Country hospital staff and paramedics before them.

South Western Railway were first to record their moves - a platform routine to Y.M.C.A by Village People - and sent it out on Twitter.

In response, Great Western Railway then raised the stakes with a creatively edited video of their own showing numerous employees (and a child) dancing to The Loco-Motion.
