Justin Bieber’s waxwork unveiled in London

Justin Bieber was seeing double in London on Tuesday as he unveiled his waxwork model at the city’s famous Madame Tussauds museum.

The Baby singer posed for the lifelike sculpture, which took waxwork artists eight months to create, and was present to show it off to the public for the first time.

At the unveiling ceremony, Bieber was keen to tell fans he has grown in stature since his statistics were taken for the model, joking, “It’s pretty incredible to see. As you can see, you know, I’m at least six feet taller than this guy.”

The waxwork, one of three created for Madame Tussauds in London, Amsterdam and New York, is dressed in a red and black shirt and jeans, and sports the star’s former floppy hairstyle.
