Susan Boyle meets Susan Boyle
TUESDAY 19 APRIL 2011
Today saw music sensation Susan Boyle come face to face with her brand new wax figure as she came to oversee the finishing touches at the ALL NEW Madame Tussauds Blackpool, ahead of our opening to the public on Thursday 21 April.
On meeting her wax figure for the first time Susan said: “I am thrilled to have my very own wax figure and honoured to be invited here to launch the new Madame Tussauds in Blackpool. It was such a great process to be involved in and it looks very realistic.”
Susan’s wax figure will reside in the ‘Big Night In’ area of our new multi-million pound Blackpool attraction. She will stand alongside the likes of Bruce Forsyth, Gok Wan and Alan Carr to name a few. The wax figure took four months to create at a cost of £150,000.
Madame Tussauds Blackpool is the first attraction in the UK outside of London and will be highly interactive and immersive. You will literally be able to step into your TV and take part in a host of your favourite shows including I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, The Jeremy Kyle Show and Alan Carr’s Chatty Man!
Matthew Titherington, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Blackpool said: “We are delighted to welcome Susan at Madame Tussauds Blackpool today to as we put the finishing touches to our exciting new attraction, which officially opens its doors here in Blackpool on Thursday 21 April.
“We began work on the attraction back in November 2010 and think the results are excellent! Where else could you get fashion tips from Gok Wan, be questioned by Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’s Chris Tarrant or step into the jungle with Ant and Dec? Here at Madame Tussauds Blackpool we have something for the whole family to enjoy!”
