Hollywood actors filming in Buckinghamshire

Two Buckinghamshire villages are fast becoming the most filmed in the world. Hambleden and Fingest , which are just two miles apart, are popular filming locations because of their close links to London.

George Clooney and Matt Damon were in Fingest last week to work on the production The Monuments Men - a World War two film. Hambleden has recently featured in the ITV productions Endeavour and Poirot.

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.
