Watch: Family recreates Les Mis song in quarantine with hilarious results

The British answer to the Von Trapp family.

Being stuck indoors for weeks on end with four boisterous children is no easy task.

So Ben and Danielle Marsh, together with their four children, from Kent in the UK came up with the perfect antidote to keep them – and their Facebook followers – amused.

Complete with an intro that sees the children good-naturedly bickering amongst themselves, the Marsh family recorded themselves singing the song ‘One Day More’ from the musical Les Miserables in their living room.

This is the last one we are going to do on a lockdown theme, but it felt very apt. And it might be just in time to cheer up some friends and family who have had – or are about to have – birthdays, all by themselves. Decided to include a bit of the intro so that you can see what kind of madness Danielle Marsh and I would be dealing with, if we didn't occupy them with music making…Hope everyone out there is doing okay.

The lyrics of the song were changed to reflect the current situation, with the family bemoaning, among other things, the fact that their grandparents do not know how to use Skype (and that they miss them) and that football matches and school are on hold for now.

The video has gone viral, with over seven million views to date.
