Families of loved ones can also opt for a Harry Potter or an Elvis-themed bespoke coffin.

Bosses at Go As You Please say no ideas are off limits to help make a difficult day a little lighter.

Other designs also include Doctor Who Tardis, a pint of Tennent's Lager and a bottle of Bell's whisky.

More scaled-down designs include leopard and camouflage print.

One late comedy fan even opted for woke comedian Nish Kumar to be wrapped around their coffin.

Lego, Betty Boop and Tartan have also been created by the quirky company.

The firm – which has branches in the north-east of England and in Edinburgh, Scotland – said the coffins are built to the needs of each individual customer.

And they say no idea is off limits when it comes to fulfilling customer's casket wishes.

"Instead of opting for any coffin from our traditional range, a bespoke coffin or casket can offer a heart-felt and personalised tribute to the loved one that you wish to remember.

"Whether it be through your choice of adornments, decorations, colour or print, a personalised coffin is the ideal choice for those looking to honour someone in an everlasting way by truly reflecting their personality and character

"No matter how weird or wonderful it may be."
