There’s been lots of speculation over the last couple of years about who will succeed Daniel Craig as James Bond, but less on the matter of who’ll be the next Bond girl.

However, it’s likely that a major star will play the traditional role, with rising star Margot Robbie currently the hot favourite with bookmakers. Australian actress Robbie, 26, is tipped for the role in a forthcoming 007 movie, which will be the 25th film in the franchise and the first for a brand new Bond actor. She’s currently the 12/1 favourite for a role in the notional sequel to Spectre, according to Irish company Paddy Power in a report in The Sun.

Sculptor Bradley Simms is pictured working on the wax figure sculpt of Pierce Brosnan, as Madame Tussauds London announces it will bring together all six Bonds for the first time in October. Brosnan played 007 four times appearing first in 1995’s GoldenEye , he is featured as he appeared in the 1997 film TOMORROW NEVER DIES. - Madame Tussauds London today announced it is bringing together wax figures of ALL SIX James Bonds for the very first time this October, with five completely new wax 007s joining the existing figure of Daniel Craig. To coincide with the release of Albert R. Broccoli's EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment's SPECTRE, the line-up of Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan and Craig will appear at the legendary London attraction for a limited time only, before embarking on a tour of Madame Tussauds' worldwide. This unique experience, created in close collaboration with EON Productions, will give fans an opportunity to stand side by side with all six Bonds - in the same place, at the same time. Guests are invited to see how they measure up to each 007, pose with their favourite and take a stand out profile picture. Each of these new wax figures will be featured in a classic 007 dinner suit, designed by Oscar® winning costume designer Lindy Hemming, based on the original costume. The Madame Tussauds team already had access to measurements of Craig, Connery, Moore, Dalton and Brosnan from previous figures featured at the attraction but needed George Lazenby's to complete the picture. The star of On Her Majesty's Secret Service was happy to oblige and gave the artists a sitting in LA in February. "The kind of information we can gather at a sitting is hugely beneficial, even at a different time period to the figure we are creating," commented Stephen Mansfield, one of the Principle Sculptors on the project. "George was extremely entertaining and generous and we gathered an entire catalogue of measurements, photographs and footage. We are using those along with references from the film to create what we hope will be an authentic and lifelike figure." General Manager of Madame Tussauds London, Edward Fuller, is delighted to be hosting the line up on the first leg of their world tour. He commented, "It's very at Madame Tussauds - London, United Kingdom - Friday 24th July 2015
