As the count down to next year’s Olympic Games hots up in earnest Madame Tussauds today paid tribute to team GB as one of its brightest hopes, World Champion Heptathlete, Jessica Ennis unveiled her new wax figure.
Portrayed in an iconic post-race celebration pose with her arms raised triumphantly as she proudly holds aloft a Union Jack flag, the real Jessica was blown away by her wax double.
“I cannot believe just how realistic it is,” commented the 25 year old World Champion. “They’ve got me down to a tee. Every little detail is so accurate from the eyes, right down to my abs – it is quite strange to be looking at your exact double!”
