From Cheryl to the Queen, which celebrity waxworks have had meltdowns at London's Madame Tussauds?
CELEBRITIES come and celebrities go – as do their waxworks at tourist favourite Madame Tussauds.
We told yesterday how One Direction are the latest victims to have had a meltdown, going from fame to flame at the London attraction, which has immortalised the rich and famous in model form since 1835.
While the lads, whose figures had been on display since 2013, seem to have suffered the dreaded seven-year-itch, the Queen is still going strong there after 92 years.
Here we look out how long some of the other famous, and infamous, waxworks have lasted . . .
