Dua Lipa made a surprise appearance at Madame Tussauds ahead of the Brit Awards as she unveiled a waxwork in her image on Friday night.

The pop singer, who claimed two Grammys at last Sunday’s event in Los Angeles, opened the London display, which recreates one of her live performances.

“I’ve been to Madame Tussauds a few times when I was younger and I took my family when they’ve come down from Kosovo and Holland and it’s always been a really fun experience.”

Madame Tussauds general manager Steve Davies said: “We had a lot of fun setting up this special moment with Dua for her fans.

“2019 already looks set to be another groundbreaking year for her and it’s about time we celebrated our fellow Londoner.”
