Firth unveiled at Madame Tussauds

Colin Firth has taken a bow as the latest new exhibit at Madame Tussauds.

The Oscar-winning actor - who won his Academy Award earlier this year for The King's Speech - has been recreated in wax at a cost of £150,000.

He has gone on display at the London attraction in the A-list party section, alongside fellow Oscar winner Kate Winslet, as well as David and Victoria Beckham.

The actor, renowned for his dashing demeanour, is captured in his red carpet finest of a black textured tuxedo complete with bow tie and pocket handkerchief.

Colin is famed for his role as brooding hero Mr D'Arcy in the BBC adaptation of Price And Prejudice.

Tussauds this month celebrated the 250th anniversary of the birth of founder Marie Tussaud.

A spokeswoman for Tussauds said: "Colin is one of the hottest leading men of our time, an Oscar winner and a true British gent."
