$1m advent calendar is no cheap date

Harrods has unveiled an advent calendar billed as the most exclusive in the world and featuring a designer kitchen and a speedboat.

The $1 million (618,000) calendar has been created by Porsche Design and is one of five available worldwide.

Harrods is displaying one in its flagship Knightsbridge store, although the designers have had to show an image of some of the larger items on illuminated plates.
