Perrie Edwards reveals pain-staking effort behind Little Mix's Madame Tussauds' waxworks
Perrie Edwards has revealed a glimpse at the pain-staking process behind creating her recently unveiled Madam Tussaud's waxwork.
The Little Mix star and her bandmates were given the honour of being immortalised at the iconic London museum.
The life-size and eerily similar figures of Perrie, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirwall and ex member Jesy Nelson were seen for the first time this week to celebrate the band's 10 year anniversary.
Jesy, 30, made the cut in the line-up, despite quitting the X Factor winning group to go solo last December.
Taking to Instagram, Perrie shared a series of photos and videos to reveal an inside look at the wax modelling process.
The models have been a year in the making, with Perrie, who is now expecting her first child, having her first measurements taken before the Covid pandemic.
Giving fans a glimpse at the work behind the sculpture, Perrie showed a video of her posing in her underwear with her arms held in the air.
The singer was sat in a chair with her legs crossed awkwardly on a constantly rotating platform as he photographs were taken from all angles.
"This killed my arms," she told fans adding that the experience left her feeling like 'rotisserie chicken'.
"Arms on fire," she recalled as she also told how she started 'shaking' as she struggled to hold the uncomfortable position.
She described the process as this feeling “surreal” and called museum's team 'amazing' and said their attention to detail “BLEW my mind.”
In another back stage image, Perrie was seen having a skin tone check as she stood with one arm exposed from her cropped black bomber style jacket.
The other snaps included in Perrie's Instagram upload show the star getting her hair fixed into a tight top-knot bun which her likeness also sports in the new museum display.
In the finishes look, the Little Mix stars are seen wearing the colourful oufits from their Bounce Back video.
They join pop stars including Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Dua Lipa who have all had waxworks made at Madame Tussauds.
A spokesperson for the iconic London museum revealed that they had started working on Little Mix's display before Jesy quit last year - which explains her appearance.
"When that news did come through, we all collectively decided that it was really best to carry on with our plans to immortalise the 'Bounce Back' video, and of course include Jesy in that line-up," said Claire Treacy, senior PR manager at Madame Tussauds in London.
"Jesy is such a huge part of Little Mix, of everything that they've achieved over 10 years," she added.
