Leona Lewis Waxes Lyrical About Model

Leona Lewis's "lifelong dream" was to be turned into a wax model.

The 'Bleeding Love' singer is thrilled about being transformed into a £150,000 life-size figurine, which it will be unveiled at London's world famous Madame Tussauds museum next month.

She said: "It is such an honour to be asked by Madame Tussauds to join the other waxwork music stars. It has been a lifelong dream since I visited the attraction as a child to be immortalised in wax. I now can't wait to meet my wax double!"

The model of the pop star will be dressed in the gown Leona wore at last year's Beijing Olympics closing ceremony, which was designed by students at the London College of Fashion.

Leona, 24, sat for the waxwork specialists earlier this year when they took 300 measurements and a series of reference photographs.

In July, a new Michael Jackson waxwork was unveiled in the wake of his death.

It is the 13th model of the pop legend that has appeared at the museum.

Coldplay singer Chris Martin recently admitted he would love to appear in the attraction's music section.
