A Hollyoaks actress has been digitally recreated as part of a groundbreaking virtual head that could replace the text emoticons we use today.

Researchers say the interactive computer face, based on 31-year-old soap actress Zoe Lister, can display six emotions including happiness, anger, and fear.

The lifelike figure, which generates voice and facial expressions from typed text, can combine these basic emotions to create hundreds of others.

NO WAY! I have enough of a female face grimacing at me and expecting me to guess what she means, in real life, thank you very much! *Gathers up his precious brood of 'Smileys' and comforts them*
