Spider-Man: Homecoming stunt double Chris Silcox has climbed into the world famous Spidey suit for a hair-raising appearance in London, ahead of the UK release of the film next month. 

In a breathtaking set of images, Silcox - wearing one of the actual suits used in the movie - stunned onlookers when he scaled the BT Tower.

The iconic web slinger clung on in a seemingly daredevil fashion on the 29th level of the 190m tall structure.

He also turned heads performing acrobatic flips at famous landmarks including Millennium Bridge and was even spotted hanging around on the London Underground and perched on a London phone box.  

Spider-Man was also spotted on the Tube

Silcox, who doubles British star Tom Holland in the new film, said: “It’s been an honour to work on Spider-Man: Homecoming as Tom's stunt double.

“I’m proud to bring the Spidey Suit into his hometown and showcase a little of what's to come when the film is released in a few weeks. The views from London's Heron and BT Towers are spectacular and rival those of New York!”
