Madame Tussauds unveils Theresa May waxwork

A “strong and stable” waxwork of the prime minister has gone on display at Madame Tussauds in London.

The figure of Theresa May can be found in the attraction’s Downing Street set, next to fellow world leaders, including US President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

She is wearing one of May’s most famous outfits, donated and fitted by British designer, Amanda Wakeley.

The red power suit donned by May on election night was also worn on her first official meeting with Trump.

Edward Fuller, general manager of Madame Tussauds London, said: “Whilst there may be no end in sight to Brexit talks, it has only taken our highly talented team of sculptors four months to create this phenomenal likeness of Theresa May.

“Mrs May is set to leave a lasting impression on British politics, and I’m confident the same will be said about her figure and our visitors.

“It’s clear the next few months aren’t going to be easy as she guides our country through some difficult decisions, but whilst her policies may be questioned we can guarantee our wax figure of the Prime Minister is most definitely strong and stable.”

British prime ministers have been immortalised in wax at the attraction, which is part of the Merlin Entertainments Group, since 1885.
