One Direction got to see their Madame Tussauds wax figures up close and personal ahead of their official unveiling to the public today (18.04.13)
One Direction have met their Madame Tussauds wax figures.
The 'One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)' group's doppelgangers
are to be unveiled to the public at the London attraction today (18.04.13), but the boys - Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson - were given a sneak peek of the models on Tuesday (16.04.13) and they are all ''honoured'' to have their own figures.
Upon seeing his likeness, Niall, 19, was amazed at the attention of detail that went into the figures - right down to the clothing choices.
He exclaimed: ''It's really good, isn't it?! This is weird - he's wearing my actual shoes!''
Zayn, 20, added: ''They look wicked, they're bang on!''
The boy band feel it's a ''privilege'' to receive their own wax figures from the famed tourist attraction, which has also immortalised the likes of Madonna, Michael Jackson and Queen Elizabeth.
Liam, 19, said: ''This is definitely a privilege, getting a wax figure.''
Harry, 19, concurred: ''It's amazing and such an honour.''
The life-like statues are sure to be a hit with their eager female fan base, but visitors will have just 12 weeks to see the waxworks at Madame Tussauds London before they are taken to other Madame Tussauds attractions around the world including New York City and Sydney, Australia.
