Posh and Becks get new Madame Tussauds figures in London

Posh and Becks get new Madame Tussauds figures in London
20 Jun 2014

She's a one-time Spice Girl and solo pop star - now superstar fashion designer - he's one of the world's most recognised football stars. So many of us would be thrilled to spot Victoria and David Beckham while on a holiday in London.

This may be easier than it sounds, too, given that there are waxworks of the celeb couple on show in the tourist hotspot's Madame Tussauds museum.

Indeed, only a few days ago, the pair had new waxworks launched at the museum, as the 15th anniversary of their wedding draws ever closer.

On 4 July, it will be a decade and a half since pop star and footie player tied the knot.

"They are uniquely talented individuals who have succeeded in their respective fields to become true international icons," said Matthew Clarkson, Madame Tussauds marketing manager, discussing Posh and Becks.

"There is no doubt they both deserve their places here. We are sure that they will be a huge hit with guests, and we can’t wait for fans to get a chance to get up close and meet them."

The new waxworks have replaced two that were made in 2004. They are on show in the museum's Party Area. Other sculptures in this part of the museum include Helen Mirren, Kate Winslet, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

David is shown wearing a suit, while Victoria has a piece from her own label on - a dress from the SS14 Ready-to-Wear collection. David's hair is done in a quiff, Victoria's is swept over one shoulder.

While you're in London, you might also want to check out the British Museum, currently home to the much-publicised 'Vikings: life and legend' exhibition, and Tate Britain's just-opened British Folk Art show.ADNFCR-408-ID-801729986-ADNFCR
