By Holly Brockwell on at

Whether you love or hate the yearly parade of daft ideas and 'new products' for April Fools' Day, it's worth remembering that it falls on a Saturday this year. Which means that a lot of companies are releasing theirs today.

Spotted any early Fools flying about? Let us know in the comments.
