Shoppers got a chance to cuddle up to George Clooney in the West End today....but they soon found their date didn't have much conversation.

The figure lounging on a purple leather sofa in the middle of Carnaby Street was actually just a waxwork of the Hollywood A-lister.

Madame Tussauds said they had put him there as a treat for fans, after he was voted the most desirable date for Valentines Day.

Prince Harry came in at number two, with Twilight actor Robert Pattinson in third, Brad Pitt in fourth and Colin Firth in fifth.

The top five most dateable females were Angelina Jolie, Cheryl Cole, Kate Winslet, Beyonce and Helen Mirren.
