Shakira and Pique…doing their business!

IT is sometimes said that if you want to stop fearing someone then imagine them on the toilet.

Traditional Christmas decorations in Cataluna go one step further and use tiny figurines to depict the rich and famous going about their, ahem, business.

The crude Christmas caganers even feature in nativities alongside more typical festive figures like Mary, Joseph and the Baby Jesus.

The tradition, which dates back hundreds of years, is stronger than ever and this year the ‘must-have’ figure is Barcelona player, Tito Vilanova.

Other people to undergo the toilet treatment include singer Shakira, tennis player Rafael Nadal and even The Queen.
