Dua Lipa unveils waxwork

The 23-year-old described the experience as "surreal" after unveiling the figure in front of fans in London on Friday night.

Pop star Dua Lipa has posed with a waxwork of herself at Madame Tussauds, in a surprise appearance ahead of the Brit Awards on Wednesday.

The display has been dubbed the Glow Room and features the outfit Lipa wore for her Glastonbury 2017 performance.

The One Kiss singer is nominated for four Brit Awards at this year's event, leading the nominations for the second time running.

She also picked up two Grammys at last Sunday's ceremony in Los Angeles for Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording.

The Glow Room will allow fans to pose with the waxwork as 10 cameras fire to create a 3D animated image, which can be shared to social media.

At the launch, the star said: "It blows my mind. It's pretty crazy to see it come to life. I'm hoping I can take it home with me.

"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."

She added in a Tweet that she had been "missing" her London fans.

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."

The Dua Lipa Glow Room opens on 16 February.
