First published in News

The Earl of Grantham was seeing double yesterday when he attended the opening of his waxwork at Madame Tussauds.

Actor Hugh Bonneville, who lives in West Sussex, appeared unnerved at the lifelike model of himself.

He joins the likes of Princess Diana, Ghandi and Nelson Mandela who have all featured in wax at the London attraction.

Mr Bonneville, 50, is best known for his role as the Earl of Grantham in the Downton Abbey.

Starting out acting in 1990, he has appeared in numerous TV and film shows including Twenty Twelve, The Vicar of Dibley and Notting Hill.

Sometimes you do wonder who the waxwork is meant to be - but that looks more like Lord Grantham than Hugh Bonneville himself!

Although Hugh Bonneville may well reside in West Sussex, this is obviously a PR-sourced story from Madame Tussauds. However, the fact that they seem to have finally managed to produce a lifelike model completely justifies its inclusion as breaking news.
