Lewis Capaldi has expressed regret over a past hairstyle, as his waxwork was unveiled at Madame Tussauds in Blackpool on Wednesday.
Joining 2,000 wax figures on display, the Scottish megastar’s statue was first started four years ago – finishing touches were put on after many delays due to Covid and scheduling commitments.
In the announcement video posted by Madame Tussauds, the musician said: “It’s good. I can understand why I have never made love to many ladies until my late twenties.
“It is weird to look at myself like this – I wish I’d never had this haircut, but it is forever immortalised in this wax figure. I love it.
“For fans, I think it will be great – they can come and touch my bum!”
Lewis’ new figure will be revealed to the public in spring 2023, and take up residence at Madame Tussauds in Blackpool.
Kyle Woodcock, senior attractions manager at Madame Tussauds Blackpool said: “It has been great fun working with Lewis to ensure we create a lifelike figure for his loyal fan base.
“The star was full of charm during his sittings and welcomed the in-depth hair and facial match with the talented team of artists at Madame Tussauds Blackpool, to enable them to replicate his youthful complexion, warm smiling expression and famed, tousled blonde hair.
“Although it has been the longest figure creation process in our history, it has definitely been worth the wait, and we’re all very excited to see the figure when it goes on display.”
Featuring more than 80 famous faces, including KSI, Ariana Grande, and Marvel stars, Madame Tussauds Blackpool gives visitors the chance to get up close and personal with their favourite celebrities.
It takes a team of 25 artists to work on one wax figure, spending a total of 800 hours collectively.
