Mel and Roger leave their mark on UK during handprint ceremonies
15 OCTOBER 2008 During the course of their careers, Spice Girl Melanie Brown and Roger Moore have left a lasting impression on the international music and film scenes. This week the pair were busy leaving their mark on home turf - literally - after being honoured with plaques bearing their handprints in separate ceremonies in London.
Back in the UK to co-host this year's MOBO Awards, Los Angeles resident Melanie added her prints to the Wembley Square Of Fame. The monument, which was inaugurated in 2006 to coincide with the £35 million refurbishment of Wembley Arena, also bears the impressions of Madonna and Cliff Richard.
Across town, Sir Roger was busy unveiling a bronze version of his own imprints in Leicester Square. The 007 icon's plaque, which is inscribed with the legend 'My word is my bond', joins those of fellow screen stars - including Tom Cruise and Michael Caine - on the pavement in the heart of the British capital's movie district.
