This cute, colourful pyramid is also fiendishly clever. It comes with a small transmitter that connects to your Sky box, so it can pick up satellite telly sound up to 30 metres away.

There are nearly 100 radio stations plus TV, and Sky+ content but it sounds better with Sky Sports cricket than The Crickets on Capital Gold. If you’re DAB deprived, though, it’s a cheap way of sampling the delights of digital radio.

All in all, the Sky Gnome will cater for the ball-loving pursuits of sportsters but leave music lovers out in the cold.

Sky Gnome review

The Sky Gnome is great for sports fans and news hounds but not so hot for music lovers
