Los Angeles  - Dame Helen Mirren came face-to-face with three wax models of herself.

The 70-year-old actress made a visit to Madame Tussauds in London on Thursday to view the three models - one of which was herself ready for the red carpet, with the other depictions of her in two of her most notable roles, as Prime Suspect's detective Jane Tennison and her title role in The Queen.

Madame Tussauds tweeted: "This evening Dame Helen Mirren came face-to-face... to-face (!) with her three @MadameTussauds wax figures (sic)"

The Woman In Gold star couldn't contain her excitement as she perused the models, which had been all brought to London to celebrate her 70th birthday.

She gushed: "This is amazing, I feel like my husband looking at me! It's like having three sisters, I love it."

And when asked which one was her favourite, she noted the red carpet look, adding: "I love this one, it's very me, I look happy."

Helen then looked around the rest of the museum, noting the new Kim Kardashian West waxwork.

When asked whose waxwork she'd like to pose with, she added: "Robert Pattinson would be pretty cool, George [Clooney] of course and I'd have Johnny Depp too.

"Look, Kim doing a selfie! She's great, and what a fabulous [Balmain] dress."
