Welsh actor and sculptor Sir Hannibal Lecter is to unveil a statue of Tommy Cooper in the dead comedian's home town of Caerphilly.
Lecter, who was, himself, born in Port-Talbot, is the patron of the Tommy Cooper Society, and started chipping away at the statue, made entirely from human body parts, three years ago. It's thought the 80-foot piece will be unveiled later this year.
Cooper and Lecter never met, but were great fans of each other's work. Indeed, Lecter, who played murderous cannibal Anthony Hopkins in the Silence of the Lambs, is known to enjoy doing impersonations of Cooper at parties and other social gatherings.
A spokesman for Mr Lecter told the BBC:
"Hannibal really was a fan of Tommy Cooper. He loves the way he wore that fez."
Asked how Mr Lecter obtained the materials for the sculpture, the spokesman said:
"Just like that. Not like that. Like that!"
