PRESS ASSOCIATION -- Johnny Vegas has made it on to the wall of the National Portrait Gallery - after stripping to recreate Demi Moore's famous pose.

The gallery has acquired portraits of Vegas, Matt Lucas, Jimmy Carr and other comedians as part of a display charting 70 years of British comedy heroes.

More than 50 photographic portraits of comedians from the 1940s to the present day have gone on display at the London gallery.
