A statue of comedian Bobby Ball which is slotxo due to erected in the town he called home for 25 years will capture the "iconic" image of him twanging his red braces, its sculptor has said.
The comic, who died in 2020, was so well known for his braces that mourners at his funeral donned pairs in tribute.
A bronze of him has been commissioned to stand in Lytham, where he lived.
Sculptor Ben Twiston-Davies said the statue of the Oldham-born comic will be "larger than life" to "mirror his joy".
Ball made his name as one half of a double act with Tommy Cannon in the 1970s and 80s and would famously pull on his signature braces while saying his "rock on Tommy" catchphrase.
The sculptor, who also created the Agatha Christie memorial in London, said he needed "to capture that iconic moment".
"He had such a firecracker personality and his vivid visual look makes him a great subject for a statue," he added.
Ball's widow Yvonne, who has previously said the comedian used to joke with her about having a statue made in memory of him in Lytham, said she had been "ecstatic" to help the artist precisely define the statue's features, which had included making sure the gap in his teeth was the right width and his moustache was the right length.
