Let's consider some of the more 'interesting' Madame Tussauds figures of recent years


YESTERDAY, MADAME TUSSAUDS in Berlin unveiled a live exhibition devoted to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex; Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

And frankly, we’re not the better for it.

Basically, two actors wore wax masks of the royal couple’s faces over their entire heads, and performed a live show in a living room set, before leaving the museum and – wait for it – mixing with locals at the Gendarmenmarkt Christmas market.

The latest additions to the collection forced us to cast our mind back over some of the more questionable wax figures of recent years.

So, without further ado, here are just some of the ones we’re still struggling to get our (normal-sized) heads around.

1. Anyone else feel like Meryl Streep has been done a huge disservice?

2. Anyone else scared of David Hasslehoff here?

3. Anyone seeing more Ronan Keating and less Gary Barlow?

6. Feeling vaguely unsettled by Zac Efron, if we’re being honest.

7. Mildly creeped out by this particularly forlorn-looking Donald Trump.
