Australian cricket star Shane Warne has again created a storm in England, but this time in the form of a giant, 28-foot statue.

The statue of the world's greatest spinner, made of wire and plaster, is the subject of a new Cricket Australia advertising campaign.

The first instalment of the six advertisements will hit television screens on Sunday night.

In the advertisements, a group of Australian workers take the Warne statue past a series of London landmarks and garner all sorts of reactions from locals.

The campaign, which culminates with the arrival of the Warne statue at Piccadilly Circus, will also be screened in the lead-up to next summer's Ashes series between Australia and England.
