One Direction got to see their Madame Tussauds wax figures up close and personal ahead of their official unveiling to the public.

The One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks) group’s doppelgangers are to be unveiled to the public at the Baker Street attraction today and the boys – Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson – say they are all “honoured” to have their own figures.

Tomorrow, One Direction return to duty on their world tour, which heads for Manchester and Sheffield over the weekend.

Like their real-life counterparts, the wax versions of One Direction are headed on a world tour, too – including trips to New York and Sydney – before returning to London next year.

Upon seeing his likeness, Horan, 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!”

Malik, 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 the Queen.

Payne, 19, said: “This is definitely a privilege, getting a wax figure.”

Stles, 19, concurred: “It’s amazing and such an honour.”
