Today we threw a celebrity party to mark the 250th birthday of founder, Madame Marie Tussaud when her wax figure (first created in 1842) was joined by some contemporary residents of her legendary attraction.
Her Majesty The Queen, Prime Minister David Cameron, celebrity “Royalty” David and Victoria Beckham, Dame Helen Mirren and Russell Brand joined Madame Tussaud in a party scene and to mark the momentous birthday the attraction also announced a crop of new faces for 2012.
Taylor Lautner– will join his co-star, British actor Robert Pattinson, in the A-List Party at the attraction in January. The American heartthrob was one of the most requested personalities in 2011.
Tom Daley will dive into the attraction with a dramatic action figure in February. Suspended at a height it will capture him in mid-dive as he soars from the diving board towards the water.
The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge will join the Royal line up to celebrate their first Wedding Anniversary in early April, shortly before a brand new figure of Her Majesty the Queen is revealed to mark her Diamond Jubilee in June. The new figure will replace her current one, created in 1996 and it will be the 23rd figure of the Queen; she was first featured as a toddler back in the 1930’s.
