The boys of One Direction have finally met their match as they helped to unveil their new Madame Tussauds wax figures on Thursday.
The boys got a little silly as they were posing with their wax counterparts in London, England with Liam Payne opting to pick the nose of his new friend.
The boys also tweeted this from their group account:

I’ve always been afraid of wax museums because the figures inside look so REAL. But hey, if they come in the form of One Direction, I guess I’ll have to make an exception.
In a special for iTV, the boys of 1D took a trip to Madame Tussaud’s in London to surprise some lucky Directioners. How? By pretending to be waxed models, of course!!
While I wasn’t sure how this was going work out, I must admit that the boys (especially Harry) were rather convincing.
It’s a sweet gesture by the boys, who are known to be quite the pranksters. But like the first girl who got the big surprise, I would have screamed just like her if I found out.
Justin Bieber’s wax double was unveiled yesterday in the London Madame Tussauds Wax Museum – and the 17-year-old couldn’t have been happier about it!
The Biebs took to Twitter during the event, embarking on a major tweet-spree expressing his excitement over the event. He tweeted:
“arrived at @tussaudslondon to see my WAX figure!! the 1st time i saw a wax figure was in nyc and all we could do was look thru the glass”
“now we are here in London and they r about to show my figure here and in amsterdam and in nyc at the one we looked thru the glass. #DREAMBIG”
“look right over there. they think we know eachother…http://plixi.com/p/84220549”
And as always, he ended with a lovely thank you to his fans:
Madame Tussaud clearly didn’t get the memo that Bieber cut his hair, TWICE, after the hairdo this wax-Justin is sporting. Nonetheless, the new Bieber is an almost identical double, and better brace himself for the hordes of screaming girls that will be coming to visit him over the next few months! At least he’s a little less breakable than the real one.
This wasn’t the only Bieber unveiling to go down recently. Around 275 kids filled the Bata Shoe Museum viewing room in Toronto, Ontario, on Monday, to get a glimpse of the newly-added purple high-top Supras (size seven and a half, for you crazy Beliebers who were curious) worn by none other than Bieber himself. The museum bought the sneakers at a Clothes off Our Back Charity Auction, the proceeds of which go to children’s charities.
“Only a little glass keeps me from his DNA,” 14-year-old Montana Cannon told the Toronto Star on Monday. If that’s what they say about his shoes, I wonder what girls would do if it was his hair behind that glass…
Snoop Dogg has become the latest celebrity to get the Madame Tussauds treatment.
The rapper-turned-reality-star attended the unveiling of his wax replica at the famous Las Vegas museum on Monday, sporting the same outfit as the one worn by his double as he posed for photographs. He also brought along a group of 50 youngsters from his Pomona Steelers football team to the event.
With the $300,000 statue, Snoop becomes the third rap icon to be immortalized at Madame Tussauds. The wax doppelgangers of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, who received the honour posthumously, can be seen at the museum’s Vegas and New York branches, respectively.
