Passers-by had a chance to snuggle up to movie hunk George Clooney as they stole a Valentine kiss.

A newly-created figure of the heartthrob actor and director was positioned on a sofa in London's Carnaby Street by sculptors from Madame Tussauds.

The model, seated on a leather sofa, is to take up position at the London attraction from tomorrow - Valentine's Day - so onlookers were the first to get a glimpse.

Clooney topped a poll of Tussauds visitors when they were asked their top choice for a Valentine date. He pulled in twice the number of votes for runner-up Prince Harry.

Tussauds PR manager Nicole Fenner said: "We decided to make some of his fans dreams come true with a pre-Valentine's Day date with our gorgeous George.

"The people here on Carnaby Street are the very first to get up close to it - and judging by the response it looks like he's got the seal of approval."
