The London Bridge TikTok trend sees users lip sync to the classic Fergie hit - but not always on the right bridge.

The capital's London Bridge has become the centre of a new TikTok trend, even if users are confusing it for some of the capital's other Thames crossings. 

For those who are yet to have a London Bridge TikTok video pop up, the trend basically sees users record themselves while lip-syncing to Fergie's 2006 hit London Bridge.

However, it seems some visitors are not too sure on where the bridge actually is. Instead of dancing on London Bridge, after which the Fergie song is named, some visitors have mistakenly recorded their videos from other nearby crossings including Tower Bridge.

One TikTok set on Tower Bridge has gone viral on the video sharing platform with over 3.3 million views. As you can imagine, the comments of the post are filled with users tearing into the people in the video for dancing on the wrong bridge.

One user wrote: "That’s the Tower Bridge actually." Another added: "It’s always the wrong bridge with this song."

Tower Bridge is not the only crossing that visitors of the city have mistaken for London Bridge. Some TikTok users have even recorded videos from Westminster Bridge, which is almost three miles down the River Thames.

Another video uploaded by American social media personality Alix Earle, which sees her dancing on Westminster Bridge with Big Ben visible in the background, has amassed over 16 million views on TikTok.

While a few seem to have set their videos from the wrong bridge, there are others who have filmed from the actual London Bridge. Those wanting to visit the actual London Bridge can head to it via Monument, which is on the Circle and District lines.

If you're travelling to the city soon and want to hop on the London Bridge trend on TikTok, you may want to check you're on the right bridge before recording.
