Dave Oldbury, who's already spent as much as £100,000 on memorabilia, has tattoos of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia.

The dad-of-two, whose collection includes letters, books and action figures, told the Daily Echo newspaper: ''I have made some of the nicest and best friends from every single avenue of the Star Wars world.

''I reckon I've spent the best part of £80,000 to £100,000 collecting all these items and probably £30,000 to £40,000 on getting people to sign autographs.''

The new film in the franchise, titled 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', stars Harrison Ford and opens later this year.
