A gay human vending machine is just one way London's royal revellers will be celebrating the Queen's diamond jubilee at a Soho street party.

Hundreds are set to throng the streets of the UK capital's gay district on Monday afternoon and evening (4 June) to mark Elizabeth II's 60-year reign.

Around six streets will be closed for partygoers to toast Her Majesty at Soho's rainbow of gay bars.

And dating website will be setting up a special treat outside Profile bar in Wardour Street to entice punters to join their celebrations - a human vending machine.

The 2.4 metre tall 'device' will display five hunky gay men for passers-by to drool over and win prizes including a holiday in South Africa.
