Madame Tussauds in London has announced a new series of exhibits that will give Star Wars fans the chance to walk among the iconic characters from the films.

Jedi Master Yoda is the first wax figure to be revealed, in a re-creation of his swamp in the Dagobah system.

This is the first of 11 walk-through scenes which will bring visitors face to face with 16 heroes and villains from the sci-fi franchise.

Celebrity couple David and Victoria Beckham will have new wax figures of themselves unveiled at Madame Tussauds today, ahead of their fifteenth wedding anniversary next month.

The pair already feature in the attraction, with older versions of the retired footballer and the former Spice Girl created in 2004. These will be replaced by the new creations, which will join other celebrity figures in the 'Party Area' of Madame Tussauds.

A new wax figure of double Olympic champion Mo Farah has been unveiled at London's Madame Tassauds.

Farah is portrayed in his trademark "Mobot" pose and is wearing a Team GB athletics kit.

“It’s brilliant – it’s weird to see myself like this but they did a great job, they look exactly like me. Even my kids are shocked!” the long distance runner said.

The unveiling comes just two days after Farah finished eighth in his first London Marathon.
