Coronation Street Waxworks
Bradley Walsh (our Danny Baldwin) will appear as a life-size model in a waxworks exhibition. He posed for more than an hour at Louis Tussaud's Waxworks in Blackpool.
And for 20 minutes of that, he had to keep perfectly still when he was having an ice-cold blancmange-type material applied to his face.
The Manchester Evening News reports that wax sculptor Mike Conroy was full of praise for the actor's patience.
Mike had to follow up the "blancmange" with a layer of plaster and also take detailed measurements of Walsh's face before he could start work on the dummy itself.
He also had to measure his chest, waist and hips to make sure that the dummy's body is in perfect scale with its head.
But Walsh, who was once a professional footballer with Brentford, sat patiently through it all.
"I've quite a busy schedule," Bradley said, "so sitting perfectly still for 20 minutes was a great opportunity to have a rest."
