It’s the time of year when our inner secret agent comes alive as we use all our best tricks to keep the magic of Christmas alive for our little ones.

 

Well, all that hard work might have been undone thanks to one news presenter who received some serious backlash after she suggested that Santa isn’t real.

 

 

Sky News’ Kay Burley was talking to consumer expert, Harry Wallop when she asked him how old his children were.

 

Informing Kay they were 14 and 11-years-old, Kay responded with:

 

“At that age, they both believe in Father Christmas so they know that you’re not buying it for them.”

 

 

Broadcasting at 4.55pm, the live news segment was at a time many children could have been watching and parents were not happy about it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kay has since responded to the Twitter reaction saying there is much more important news to be discussing on the day MP Jo Cox's murderer was sentenced to life imprisonment.
