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."

With their encouragement, you'll be able to finish work in record time. After hours, you'll be able to share a good meal together. Do your best to balance work with play.More
