Cheryl’s Madame Tussauds waxwork has been removed for a pretty rude reason



Bosses at London’s Madame Tussauds wax museum have decided to remove their Cheryl Tweedy waxwork.


The Sun has reported that Cheryl’s waxwork is “currently being stored in the London archives,” as she doesn’t fit the bill as a recognisable enough celebrity.

So yeah, it’s pretty cut throat in the waxwork world it seems.

A rep for the museum confirmed that it “isn’t uncommon for our figures, as from time to time we do change who we have in the attraction.”

The review of the waxwork collection is so that Madame Tussaud’s can have “figures to best represent what our visitors want to see.”


So basically, the famous faces that are considered to be the most relevant.

In fairness, we’re big fans of Cheryl, but she has been fairly quiet lately in terms of her career.

Cheryl Tweedy spent a number of years as an X Factor judge, alongside Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osborne.

Interestingly, her fellow judges’ waxworks have not been removed from the museum.

When her waxwork model was first revealed in 2014, Cheryl’s replica wore a red gown and a tiara.

In fact, the sculptors even added the rings given to Cheryl by her now ex husband, Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.
