Colin Firth set for Madame Tussauds
Colin Firth is used to handling statuettes - and now he will have to get to grips with being one.
The Oscar-winning King's Speech star is being turned into a wax figure for London attraction Madame Tussauds later this year.
Model-makers have finished off the first stage by completing a clay version of his head.
Principal sculptor Louis Wiltshire has put the finishing touches to the lifelike image which will be used to create a mould for the final cast of the actor's head.
The actor - who can currently be seen in the hit spy thriller Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - will join a group of other A-list stars in December.
