Above you can see the nativity scene at The Grove Methodist Church in Horsforth earlier today.
Do you notice anything odd about it?
Well, there's a shepherd missing.
And can you guess who that shepherd might be?
Let me give you a clue.
Prior to going AWOL (and despite point blank refusing to wear the customary tea towel on his head), Jamie initially seemed enthused at the prospect of making his debut as a thespian.
But then he managed to break his staff and, looking back, it was probably the beginning of the end.
Sadly, the end itself came only about three seconds after he'd managed to get to the front of the church - prompting the narrator to announce to the amused congregation, "Oh dear, one of the shepherds has gone 'ome!"
Perhaps, next year, they'll just put him in charge of props.
