50 Shades Of Grey Character, Christian Grey, Brought To Life By Image-Generating Software

Form an orderly queue ladies. This is what Christian Grey, the big shot from 50 Shades of Grey looks like in the flesh. Or would look like, if he wasn't a mere fictional character.

Thanks to Dr Faye Skelton, an academic at the University of Central Lancashire, we have the 'first' image of heartthrob Christian.

Dr Skelton used image-generating software and descriptions from women who have read the book, to bring the man to life.

"While we don't want to intrude on anyone's fantasies, based on a small sample of women, this is the image of Christian Grey they have in their heads when reading the novels," she said.

"Personally, I think he's quite handsome - although everyone's interpretation will be different."

50 Shades of Grey by E L James has sold over a million copies and has taken the nation by storm. It tells the tale of Christian Grey, a dominating businessman, and inexperienced student Anastasia Steele.

It's surely not the first time we've seen this kind of a project, though. Artist Brian Joseph Davis used the same software to create literary mug shots using character descriptions to create mug shots of darker, troublesome characters.
