Twitter reacts to Teletubbies baby unveiling

The face behind the Teletubbies sun baby have been revealed – and Twitter has gone crazy over the news.

Nineteen-year-old dance education student Jess Smith told fellow students during her first week at Canterbury Christ Church University that she was the smiling face in the sky on the hit children’s show, before breaking the news on Facebook – after keeping her role a secret for nearly two decades.

According to Kent Online, she wrote: “So I’ve recently celebrated my 19th birthday and after a lot of thought, I’ve decided it’s time to tell everyone. I used to hide it but after a lot of encouragement from my friends at university, I’ve gained the confidence to come out with it.

“I am the sun from Teletubbies. There has been quite a few people pretending to be ‘the sun’ but only I could tell you the real story.”

And here’s what Twitter thought about it.
