Not at all creepy. Via the Norwich Evening News.

It just so happens that their companion is a life-sized and disturbingly realistic doll of Sir Cliff Richard wearing a Norwich City scarf.

According to the Norwich Evening News, the Sir Cliff doll sits in their Peugeot 206 when they travel to friends' houses or the supermarket. He was constructed from a model head bought at a car boot sale and an MDF torso, and dressed in one of David's old jumpers.

The doll's eyes are covered with aviator sunglasses because, the paper reports, "his eyes are too intense to look at".

Jill is big fan of Sir Cliff and has 22 of his CDs and "some DVDs".

She says: "One of the old 45s we have got in the loft is from when he was in the Drifters [later renamed the Shadows]... I saw him when he came to the theatre in Norwich in 1959 – I remember queueing up to get tickets and he was just fantastic that night."

We got the head because we like Cliff Richard, Jill especially is a big fan, and it just escalated from there.We thought he would be useful for when Jill is driving on her own, especially at night, so it looks like there is a male passenger.

The couple say that plenty of people give them a double take when they are driving around with "Sir Cliff".

David told the Norwich Evening News: "We recently caught the Dover to Dunkirk ferry service to go to Germany – and not once during the inspection by customs and immigration staff in either country was he spotted or commented on!"
