Lautner waxwork battles screen foe

Taylor Lautner's waxwork has taken its place next to Robert Pattinson's likeness

Taylor Lautner has been honoured with a perfect Twi-likeness.

The US heart-throb, who plays Jacob Black in the hit Twilight film series, has been recreated as a wax figure.

Now he will do battle with his screen nemesis to see which is most popular among visitors to London attraction Madame Tussauds.

The Lautner figure is standing shoulder to shoulder with Robert Pattinson - who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the supernatural romances - and visitors will be able to choose which should be given an area of his own.

The new figure took four months to create, at a cost of £150,000, and is dressed in jeans and a leather jacket.

Liz Edwards of Tussauds said: "Taylor was one of the most requested personalities in 2011.

"We wanted to do something fun to celebrate Taylor's arrival and what better way than to try and answer the ultimate question - Taylor vs R-Patz - who is the supreme king of hearts?"

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
