He said: “When he’s not watching the cartoon, he’s singing ‘Spider-Man, Spider-Man’.

“When I started dressing up as Spider-Man I did it for my boys.

“Now I do it for humanity because we could all do with a little more joy in our lives. Every family I have come across has loved it.

“It’s great to see the look on children’s faces when they shout: ‘Wow, it’s Spider-Man.'”

Christopher bought the costume for £22 as a surprise for the four-year-old, but needed to try it on before he showed the youngster.

He said: “I wanted to see if it fit me so I waited until night time, put it on and rode my bike to a friend’s house.

“On the way I noticed people were cheering and waving at me.

“When I got back I realised how much fun I’d had.”

Now, every time they go shopping Christopher dons his costume and the family of superheroes head out to the delight of passers-by.

The trio don their outfits to do mundane errands, like doing the grocery shopping or nipping to the post office – all to the delight of wife and mum Chantelle.

She said: “I love them dressing up.

“It’s for the boy and he adores Spider-Man. I think he likes it because he can get to places other people can’t.”

“I only get embarrassed when people ask where my outfit is.

“I tell them that, when I get slimmer, I’ll put one on.”

Christopher and his boys have no plans to stop dressing up any time soon, but are not on the lookout for a Fantastic Four set of costumes so Chantelle can get involved.

She added: “It’s nice to think our family is doing something to cheer people up.”
