The weirdest and most wonderful Diamond Jubilee memorabilia


There are just days to go before we celebrate 60 years of the Queen's reign. It's at times like this that the absence of Woolworths is most keenly felt.

Where shall we find limited edition Diamond Jubilee tea towels? Where to procure cups, saucers and plates emblazoned with the Monarch's visage?

Never fear. With the decline in availability of standard celebratory tat, there has been an influx of offbeat fare.

From jelly moulds of the Queen's face to Coronation Chicken ice cream, we pick some of the most unusual Jubilee memorabilia.
