Samantha Cameron meets David’s double
Samantha Cameron came face to face with her husband’s double today we unveiled a wax figure of the new Prime Minister in a specially created Downing Street set this morning, Thursday 1st July 2010.
Mrs Cameron gave the likeness her seal of approval and posed alongside the figure in front of the iconic door of No 10. “He looks very familiar!” Mrs Cameron commented: “They’ve done an amazing job, they’re such talented artists, he even has a little bit of stubble - the children will be amazed when they see it!”
Mr Cameron is featured in a typically relaxed pose, wearing a dark Paul Smith suit teamed with white shirt and teal tie. The figure cost £150,000 and took four months to create; the Prime Minister was involved in its creation, sitting for sculptors at Portcullis House.
“We are pleased to welcome David Cameron as the British Prime Minister and are delighted that Samantha Cameron has been the first to meet his figure unveil our very own Downing Street”, said Liz Edwards, spokesperson for Madame Tussauds London. “Guests will now get the opportunity to stand shoulder to shoulder with the country’s elected leader at one of the world’s most famous addresses and we are sure they will love it”
