Sexy Christmas underwear is officially so last year. No red satin, sequins or white fringing for festive couples in 2012 - because Christmas 2012 was the year the onesie ruled supreme.

Even Mayor of London Boris Johnson admitted he had received a Union Jack onesie, but refused to publish a picture.

The Mayor revealed last week that he owned the cosy garment, in response to a question on Twitter.

A Mayor's spokesman later told the Daily Mail: "Boris has no intentions of making a public appearance in the onesie at the moment.

'It is made of a thick woolly material and he found it a bit warm. It was also a bit big.

Asda recently revealed that it was set to sell up to a million onesies for Christmas.

Many celebrities tweeted pictures of themselves in their onesies at Christmas - with some more pleased with their gifts than others.
