MARKS and Spencer's Colin the Caterpillar cake has had a makeover this Halloween.

The popular cake character has been "mummified" in two layers of chocolate to give him an especially spooky look.

The cake featured the classic chocolatey sponge, filled with signature chocolate buttercream.

It's then coated in a layer of milk chocolate and a layer of creamy white chocolate too – an extra layer compared to the usual Colin.

You can pick up a full size double choc yummy mummy Colin the Caterpillar for £12 in stores now.

The Halloween special edition will set you back £4 more than the standard cake, £8.

This is likely due to the weight difference from the two chocolate layers – a standard Colin is 625g whereas the mummified version is 865g.

Also available are packs of five mini mummy Colins which cost £2.75.

In previous years we have seen Colin dressed up in various costumes to celebrate the holidays.

On Halloween for the past few years he has been dressed as a Dracula, Frankenstein and a ghoul.
