If you spent all Christmas watching Black Mirror: Bandersnatch and searching out all 10 'proven' endings to the choose-your-own-adventure, then you really do deserve a medal. Or at least a limited edition version of Stefan's volatile computer game.

But if you didn't realize there was also a secret post-credits scene, don't feel too bad. Because even Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker has forgotten how to find it.

"I think it's either that you get it straight after the train [ending] or, if you haven't yet done it, it will trigger if you've seen like four or five endings, I think. I think," he told The Wrap.

"There's some bit of arcane kind of stuff it's working out there."


He added: "That's a good example of how complicated the whole thing gotthat I can't tell you how to trigger it."

Co-creator Annabel Jones clarified: "At the time we launched, we would have knownif that gives you any comfort and attempts for us to regain our professionalism."

It's okay, guys. There's a trillion storyline combinations. We can just about forgive you.

As for what's in the post-credits scene, it finds Stefan (Fionn Whitehead) on the bus and, instead of pulling out one of the tapes you choose to get from WHSmith, he pulls out a copy of his game Bandersnatch.
