Comedian excited about new wax double

Russell Brand is the latest celebrity to be immortalised in wax at Madame Tussauds.

A team of expert modellers have taken 300 measurements to make sure that the star’s dummy is as life-like as possible.

‘Now that I’m monogamous I want to live vicariously through wax Russell,’ the comedian, 35, jokes.

‘I insist that he’s placed next to wax Helen Mirren and I hope they melt into one sexy blob.’

Russell’s model – dressed in his trademark guy-liner, skin-tight trousers and jewellery – will be unveiled at Madame Tussauds in London next month.
