SECOND man to walk on the Moon - Buzz Aldrin - will be meeting starstruck fans in Solihull this weekend.

The Apollo 11 astronaut will be among the celebrities attending the hugely-popular Autographica event at the Hilton Metropole Hotel.

The annual event also welcomes Gary Connery - the daredevil who was stand-in for the Queen at this summer’s Olympic opening ceremony.

Dressed in Her Majesty’s pink dress and pearls, he completed a skydive from a helicopter above the Olympic stadium. He has also doubled for 007 in various Bond movies.

Visitors will be able to get the stars’ signatures and pose for photos.

Autographica runs from October 12-14.

Tickets are available on 01959 573 792 or online at www.autographica.co.uk
