Clock tells time with a wink
The world's first talking, smiling, winking clock has been unveiled.
It cost £50,000 to put together and was modelled on the eyes, nose and face of British Airways cabin crew member Jill Muir.
"Its just fantastic, it really hasn't sunk in yet. I'm so pleased and proud," she said after the clock was unveiled on Monday.
While Ms Muir's features are on view, the voice the public hears actually belongs to radio presenter Jo Blakeway.
The two were recorded at different times in the studio, then the voice and lips synchronised to produce the clock.
"It's nice, something different," said Ms Blakeway. "It's a talking point as you're coming up the stairs - 'Ooh, did you see that clock in there'. Its just good fun."
