Star Wars actor Anthony Daniels has hit out at fraudsters who are selling forged copies of his autograph to unsuspecting film fans.

Daniels, who has starred as robot C-3PO in all six Star Wars movies, has launched a stinging campaign against the fakers on his website - where examples of supposed "signed memorabilia" are displayed.

His spokesman says, "We are concerned about the number of forgeries of his signature that are widely available.

"Various dealers, organisations and individuals think they have the right to cheat the fans."
