More than 390,000 people in the UK claim to follow the Jedi way, according to the 2001 Census.

The figures revealed that 0.7 per cent of the UK population gave their official religion as Jedi, following a massive campaign to try and get it recognised.

At the time the issue caused a jolly great deal of fuss as deadly serious civil servants tried to comprehend the wave of interest.

Even now, officials are describing the inclusion of Jedi as a religion as "not a serious answer". Of course, they won't be saying that when some "death star" parks itself in the Earth's orbit.

Anyhow, Jedi hotspots in the UK include Brighton and Hove (6,480), Manchester (5,476) and Wandsworth (5,024).

The "Force" does not appear to be strong in Merthyr Tydfil, Blaenau Gwent and Wear Valley. ®
