Professor Brian Cox has created the greatest Star Wars-themed Christmas tree in the galaxy

The dark side has never looked so bright

December’s only just begun, but Professor Brian Cox might just have made at the best Christmas tree decoration of the year.


Fittingly for a scientist obsessed with the wonders of the solar system, this year’s he’s gone for a Star Wars theme – and the results are incredible.

The Darth Vader tree comes complete with lightsaber, adorable fluffy Yoda and Chewie baubles, and enough tinsel and fairy lights to decorate a Death Star. 

“We bought a black Christmas tree and decorated it as Darth Vader,” Cox revealed on ITV’s This Morning, before he was given an early Christmas present: a stormtrooper tree decoration (seen on the right next to Lord Vader’s cape).


Is this the greatest Christmas tree in the galaxy?
