BURNLEY-For couples that do everything together, a Burnley-based company has designed ‘The Twinsie’. It has three legs, four arms, two hoods and costs £50. The unusual garment is available in light grey, navy blue and aubergine and, according to the Daily Mail, was created after a public consultation on Facebook.

Colin Leggatt, marketing director of The Original Factory Shop, said: ‘The Twinsie offers a practical but fun solution for those wanting to stay warm this winter without running up costly energy bills. ‘And what a fantastic Christmas present for the person in your life, or even the person you’d like to get closest to’.
