Star Wars day is held every year on May 4 to celebrate the hugely popular film franchise created by George Lucas.
Ant and Dec appeared to have dressed up like Jawas who were a species of meter-tall humanoids in the film that wore long brown capes.
The pair captioned the funny snap: ‘May the 4th be with Chew! #maythe4thbewithyou *photo taken in a pre covid world in a galaxy far, far away…’

It comes after reports that the pair could lose millions over a property investment.
The Saturday Night Takeaway duo had invested more than two million each for neighbouring properties at The Keys complex on the Algarve in 2015 – but developers went bust.
Last Tuesday, it was reported that the pair, and Phillip Schofield, stand to lose £8million and won’t get compensation for their ‘dream villa’ complex which was never completed.
Fellow ITV presenter Phillip, 59, paid £1.5million for his holiday home there, with all three celebrities expecting plush villas boasting rooftop pools and their own private bars, after falling in love with the area.

But after the developers accumulated millions in debt, the firm went into administration in 2017, leaving the resort empty, unfinished and the investors out of pocket.
Their hopes of getting their money back after the developers went bust have been knocked after a Portuguese court refused an appeal designed to block the sale of the resort, The Sun reports.
The Keys Resort, near the exclusive at Quinta do Lago golf course, went into liquidation in August 2017 owing £250million to Caixa Geral de Depositos, the Portuguese state-owned bank.

Developers Birchview Imobiliaria, which were declared insolvent in May 2017, claim the bank was wrong to pull its support.
An appeal had been lodged to put a stop to the sale to finance firm SRESPX – who agreed to the purchase if it did not have to pay creditors – but it was refused by Judge Marta Rei.
She said: ‘There is no basis to argue the nullity of the sale process.’
Documents from the court revealed Ant and Dec are owed £3.1million and Phillip Schofield is owed £2million. Instead creditors will now be forced to take the appeal to the top court.
