Here at Newstalk ZB, we're across every breaking news story whenever it happens, even if that's at 4 in the morning.

So it was that Bruce Russell came to break the news that Andrea Leadsom had dropped out of the race to be Conservative Party leader and British PM, leaving the way clear for Theresa May.

Bruce cued up an audio cut of May making a triumphant speech - only - that's not quite what come out. 

Instead, listeners were treated to a snipped of Selena Gomez's 'Hands to Myself' - take a listen above.
