Mariah tweets HMS Ocean’s crew

The clip of HMS Ocean's crew miming to her 1994 hit All I Want for Christmas Is You has got more than half a million hits on YouTube.

Mariah saw the clip and tweeted: "This is the best thing I've ever seen, you guys just made my day! Happy Happy Christmas!!! x0x0 to the troops."

The video was the crew's way of celebrating their imminent return to the UK, in time for Christmas, after a seven-month deployment.

Lt Kelly Cleeve reportedly said that recording the song had been a way to boost morale and give the guys a bit of a diversion.

She explained, "It was fun to do, and the result raised many smiles both on and off the ship, so as far as we were concerned - mission accomplished."
