The news that Robert Pattinson has been spotted smooching a group of female fans in Blackpool would surely be enough to bring the female population of the North West thronging to the seaside party town, and incredibly that seemed to be the case.
Sadly though for those who'd like to have a go with Rob on the dodgems, look closely at this Rob and you may be in for a rather waxy disapointment, because this Rob is a waxwork unveiled at the Blackpool Madame Tussauds.
Actually you don't need to look that closely as the waxwork shall we say isn't exactly a perfect likeness, perhaps bearing more resemblance to James McAvoy after an extreme bout of insomnia than the 'Twilight' star.
We doubt girlfriend Kristen Stewart would even recognise it as him, despite it costing £150,000 to make and attracting hundreds of fans to the attraction.
That didn't stop the ladies from wanting to get close to this wax version of the 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2' star, with two Blackpool beauties pouncing on the fortunate piece of former candle material.
As for the real Rob, unfortunately he's not touring round Britain's party towns but rather promoting the final installment of the 'Twilight' series, and has been in Australia meeting fans and doing interviews to promote 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2' ahead of its worldwide release on November 16.
Kristen Stewart has been attending the Japanese leg of the tour, and spoke at a fan event at Shinkjuku Piccadilly today, speaking out about the love triangle at the heart of 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2'.
