'Planet of the Apes' stars ditched their monkey suits for glamour at the UK premiere of Tim Burton's new film.

Around 3,000 fans turned up at the event to catch a glimpse of the stars.

Actor Mark Wahlberg delighted bystanders with a 20-minute walkabout in Leicester Square, shaking hands and chatting.

Helena Bonham Carter, who plays a chimpanzee in the film, looked a world away from her character in a dazzling designer gown.
