The Benny Hill theme tune was played out of loudspeakers at Westminster after Boris Johnson stepped down as Conservative Party leader.
Rexit protester Steve Bray played the iconic jaunt outside 10 Downing Street, after actor Hugh Grant requested it on Twitter.
Explosive topics can be overheard during live news broadcasts as journalists cover the latest developments in the political story.
Mr Bray celebrated the return of his speakers this morning, a week after confiscating them under new legislation aimed at cutting down on noisy protests.
The Notting Hill actor tweeted: “Glad you have your speakers back. Do you have any chance to have the Benny Hill track in your hand? “
Mr Bray responded by tweeting a video of the song being played outside the Houses of Parliament.
He wrote: “Only for @HackedOffHugh as requested here today at the media circus… College Green. Benny Hill theme tune. “
The Benny Hill theme wasn’t the only satirical song played over Mr Bray’s speakers.
Good Morning Britain faced a minor disruption in its live broadcast on Wednesday when protesters began singing Bye Bye Boris, a parody tune written by Somerled MacKay.

Bray, from Port Talbot in South Wales, had regularly protested Brexit at College Green throughout 2018 and 2019 and had previously been heard shouting during TV news broadcasts.
He is also known for going into the background of live TV reports, often wearing an eye-catching top hat and carrying placards with anti-Brexit or anti-Government messages.
