One Direction get waxed! Harry and the boys are measured up for Madame Tussauds' figures... which will go on a world tour

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

Camera ready: the One Direction boys had two sittings to perfect their wax figures for Madame Tussauds

With a huge worldwide fan base, people go to all lengths to meet them.
But now it's going to be even easier to have a picture with the boys from One Direction.
Madam Tussauds confirmed on Monday that all five members are to be created as wax figures that will tour the world.

Beginning in London, the waxworks will then travel to New York, and then onto Sydney.
Harry said: 'We're just kind of a bit overwhelmed. We've been to Madame Tussauds and seen the kind of people who are in there. It's crazy to think that we will be up there with them.'
Zayn agreed adding: 'All the biggest stars around the world get these wax figures made of them and why are we, five normal lads, getting these made? It's an amazing honour, really cool and we can't wait to see them.'

Hold still! The team from Madame Tussauds took hundreds of measurements

Liz Wells, Global Head of Marketing for the tourist attraction explained: 'We have been overwhelmed by requests for us to feature One Direction.
Louis, Liam, Harry, Zayn and Niall have been involved throughout the sculpting process and discussing the style their figures will be portrayed in.'
The tour will eventually take on more locations to satisfy worldwide demand.
Niall was quite surprised and said: 'We were super excited to find out that they were making us and that people felt we were worthy of a figure

From start to finish, the waxworks will cost £150,000 to make - each.
The boys have had two sittings and had hundreds of measurements taken to make sure the likeness is as realistic as possible, and will be dressed in their usual smart-casual stage style.
Liam said: 'We actually first heard when we were over at Madame Tussauds looking at the figures. The quality of the work that goes on over there is mad.'
And with the knowledge that thousands of fans will be clambering to get their photo taken with the group, the pressure is on.

Principle sculptor, Stephen Mansfield, explained: 'We are acutely aware that millions of fans around the world will have a lot to say about these figures and we are determined not to let them down.
The boys have been a delight to work with, really co-operative and a huge amount of fun.'
Louis added: 'I think it's going to be quite weird to see yourself as a wax figure. But it's an amazing honour to be there. We are very proud.'

Madame Tussauds confirmed the boys will be seated on a school style double bench and fans will be able to sit next to them.
The tour beings at Madame Tussauds London on 18 April until 11 July.
Stateside fans can see the figures at Madame Tussauds New York from 19 July - 11 October, when it'll then move to Sydney, Australia, between 24 October - 28 January 2014.
