Filled with dozens of waxworks and celebrities taking selfies, it felt like a real party where you'd spot famous faces you recognised in the crowd.




Never camera shy, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were at the back of the room taking a selfie.




Meanwhile, Tom Hardy was sitting comfortably on a sofa where you were encouraged to cuddle up and listen to his heartbeat.
