Brand waxwork joins Tussauds A-list

A waxwork of Russell Brand has been unveiled at Madame Tussauds in London

You've read Russell Brand's Booky Wook, now meet the looky like.

The hirsute comic turned Hollywood actor has clearly found a use for wax - after being immortalised by Madame Tussauds.

The model of the star, which cost £150,000 to create, has been unveiled at the London attraction.

Get Me To The Greek star Russell attended a sitting for Madame Tussauds sculptors in Los Angeles earlier this year.

His figure has been dressed in a Ted Baker grey suit with his signature tight trousers, an open neck black shirt, silver jewellery and topped off with "guy-liner".

Russell will be placed with the celebrities in the "A-list party" area of Tussauds, just a canape's throw from Dame Helen Mirren, his co-star on forthcoming movie Arthur.

Liz Edwards, PR manager at Madame Tussauds, said: "He will undoubtedly be one of the most visually striking figures here at Madame Tussauds London."
