Ryan Gosling fans have already began queuing to meet the wax version of their hero at Madame Tussauds, which was unveiled yesterday in London.

The life-size figurine equivalent of Gosling is now available to be drooled and wept over like the One Direction waxworks that went before him. The museum was forced to enlist a tissue attendant to help console hysterical fans

Gosling of Tussauds is only on display for the summer months, which has only heightened his appeal.

“It's only been one day, but already the reception towards our brand new Ryan Gosling wax figure has been excellent,” said Matthew Clarkson, Madame Tussauds London marketing manager.

“The figure is actually only with us for the summer so people are very keen to visit before he leaves. It's too early to say if the impact will rival the One Direction phenomena, but we can certainly say the figure has been one of the most popular in the attraction for selfies today, so watch out 1D!”Gosling caused an outcry among women all over the globe after it was strongly rumoured that he and his girlfriend, Eva Mendes, are having a baby.

The news coincided with Brazil’s humiliating defeat against Germany, but the distress of World Cup host nation was nothing compared to that of Gosling’s bereft fans.

“Take the pain of #Brazil's loss and multiply it by every ovary on Earth... Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are having a baby. #LetTheRiotsBegin,” said one upset tweeter.

Another said: “Fact: there are more girls crying in the world right now over Ryan Gosling than people who cried in Brazil yesterday.”
