One Direction See Double!
Pop sensations, One Direction, were today the latest figures to be unveiled at Madame Tussauds London. Revealed for the first time in front of a small group of excited fans, the figures wear outfits donated by the boys themselves and sit casually together on a school-style double bench where fans can also sit right beside them. The figures will stay in London for 12 weeks ONLY (until July11) before embarking on a tour that will then visit Madame Tussauds New York and Sydney with more locations to be announced.
The boys were treated to a sneak peek of their finished wax figures at a secret viewing on Tuesday this week, before their latest gig in Nottingham. The boys were stunned by the likeness as they came face-toface with their amazingly lifelike wax figures for the first time, Zayn commented, "They look wicked, they're bang on!" with Louis adding that he "can't wait for fans to see them". Niall was stunned at seeing his double, "It's really good, isn't it?! This is weird - he's wearing my actual shoes!" The boys were overwhelmed by the experience, Liam said, "This is definitely a privilege, getting a wax figure" and Harry agreed, "It's amazing and such an honour".
The group become the first boy band to be created by the legendary celebrity hot spot since The Beatles' figures in 1964. "We are delighted to be the first venue on One Direction's Madame Tussauds World Tour, and by the reaction of the fans today and the boys this week, it's going to be a huge success," said Nicole Fenner, PR Manager at Madame Tussauds London. "The demand for them in London has been staggering, as I know it has been in New York and Sydney where they will travel on to. In London we have created a special themed area where fans can immerse themselves in a whole world of One Direction from today. Most importantly they will be able to sit down right next to their heroes’ wax figures, look deep into their eyes and ruffle their hair."
