A DAD-OF-THREE will don his favourite Where's Wally? outfit when he takes part in one of London's most recent talked about tourist attractions.

Antony Pace from Welham Green is immensely excited about participating in the "fourth plinth" experiment in Trafalgar Square, tomorrow (Tuesday).

The 46-year-old, who loves fancy dress, wants to entertain people in his one hour on the plinth - something he believes others need to do more often.

"I love the idea of the plinth and wish that people were being a little more outrageous up there," he said.

The software engineer, of Parsonage Road, added: "My aim is to fill the hour so that once you start watching you won't want to stop.

"I realise that is ambitious but I've been very surprised that some people are happy to simply sit on the plinth and not do anything in particular - maybe they are the true artists."

Antony, who is married to Chris, and has three sons, Damian, 11, Dominic, 13, and Oliver, 15, said his biggest concern about the day was how the five of them were going to get into London at 4.30am!

"I don't think the trains run that early - or late - and we [the adults] intend to finish the day in town with a pint or two!" he said.

British sculptor Antony Gormley launched the fourth plinth project last month.

Each hour for 24 hours a day a different person will occupy the plinth as a living statue until October 14.

Antony added: "I'm not an artist like so many say they are that are going on the plinth and I couldn't claim to be a particular fan of Antony Gormley's work but I'm looking forward to the hour immensely."

Antony will be on the plinth from 6am until 7am.
