It is a truth universally acknowledged that Sir David Attenborough is everyone's favourite person, and now you can wear his familiar face on the front of a very festive Christmas jumper.
British brand notjust has a collection of quirky, tongue-in-cheek Christmas jumpers, from a Gareth Southgate knit complete with a printed waistcoat to a Jeremy Corbyn "Jerry Christmas" sweater, but our favourite has to be the Sir David Attenborough product.
The jumper, in festive red and green, depicts the nation's hero holding a robin, with the apt slogan "Attenbrrrr!" below him.
We'd like to imagine that the 92-year-old hero has been sporting the jumper while filming his latest series, Dynasties, in Antarctica.
With a limited edition run of 250 jumpers, each snuggly knit is priced at £34.99, and is designed and produced in the UK - you can buy one here.
Plus, investing in this cosy Christmas jumper isn't just about keeping warm and declaring yourself an Attenborough fangirl: for each jumper sold by notjust, the brand will donate a jumper to the homeless.
Attenborough's latest nature series for the BBC, Dynasties, has been all over the headlines in the last couple of weeks.
In one episode about emperor penguins in Antarctica's Atka Bay, viewers were treated to an amusing scene in which one female penguin unceremoniously (and adorably) slid on her belly to interrupt another couple who were about to mate, causing a fight to break out between the penguins.
Another headline-hitting event happened when Attenborough's crew went against their usual policy of never interfering with the animals to step in to try to save a number of penguins trapped in a ravine, digging steps to help the penguins escape to safety.
Series executive producer Mike Gunton told BBC Radio 5 Live that while the crew would never normally interfere with the course of nature, calling it a "very dangerous thing to do", in this instance, they felt it was necessary.
"It's such an unusual circumstance to do this, and there are lots of situations where you couldn't, and shouldn't and wouldn't - but I think in this situation there were so many factors," he said.
"There were no animals going to suffer by intervening. It wasn't dangerous. You weren't touching the animals and it was just felt by doing this... they had the opportunity to not have to keep slipping down the slope."
You can catch up on Dynasties on the BBC iPlayer now.
