Before we describe the Star Wars Lightsaber BBQ Tongs please be aware that the headline was a joke. Eating wookie meat is not advisable as they're big, hairy and short tempered. But using the tongs for earth meats is fine.

Designed to look like a Lightsaber, these BBQ tongs might not extend quite as far as a "real" Lightsaber but they'll offer enough reach to stop wannabe Jedis burning their digits.

In between meat flips, or when done, the tongs can have their removable red cover placed on them to look like a short Lightsaber. And, of course, they make the classic noise you'd expect from a Lightsaber. Just be careful you don't get too carried away swinging it about or there could be steak flying all over the garden.

The Lightsaber BBQ Tongs are available now for £20.
