The company introduced the product after its customers admitted that they'd give up Christmas dinner to stop playing their favourite video games.

The all-in-one concept was designed so that those who didn't want to stop playing games could have Christmas dinner in their chairs while still playing.

The company says it has been inundated with requests for vegan and vegetarian options, and this year it has come up with something to suit everyone.

The traditional Christmas Tinner comprises of nine layers of food, ranging from a starter to a pudding.

The top layer is made of scrambled egg and bacon, which sits above a layer of fruity mincemeat.

The middle layers combine turkey and potatoes, roast carrots and other trimmings before being finished off by a layer of Christmas pudding.

The vegan option, meanwhile, boasts 12 layers, and features scrambled tofu and tempeh bacon, before serving up a mushroom wellington.

Dessert includes a vegan chocolate cake and custard.

The vegetarian version also has 12 layers of food and switches out scrambled eggs and bacon for gingerbread pancakes and the traditional turkey for a nut roast.

This option also features veggie pigs in blankets, and yule log and Toblerone for dessert.
