So, diamond-encrusted hair straighteners not enough for you, eh? Feeling in need of more utterly ridiculous over-the-top indulgence? Well, it is Christmas…

Selfridges has got a seriously limited-edition (there are only four) chocolate fountain that has been plated in 24 carat gold. So it costs £5000. Gulp.*

According to the maker – Giles and Posner – the fountain is cordless, rechargable and works with virtually any type of chocolate. Although I’m assuming it favours this stuff.

* There is a non-gold-plated version by Giles and Posner that costs £229.
