The 'Kiss You' five-piece described the new exhibition as "such an honour" while seeing the finished designs.

One Direction came face to face with their very own waxwork models this week as part of the latest Madame Tussauds exhibition.

The 'Live While We're Young' singers were introduced to their life-size wax counterparts at a secret meeting in Nottingham this week (16th April), before the exhibition gave fans their own first look this morning (18th April).

Band member Zayn Malik was said to have described the models as "wicked" and "bang on" with Liam Payne saying he felt "privileged" to be immortalised by the global waxwork museum.

One Direction star Harry Styles said it felt like "such an honour", while fellow band member Louis Tomlinson admitted he couldn't wait for fans to get to see the five new waxwork additions.

The new exhibition will stay at the London Madame Tussauds for twelve weeks before heading out on their own world tour to museums in New York and Sydney.

One Direction are set to bring their 'Take Me Home' tour UK leg to a close this coming weekend, with recent rumours suggesting the five-piece are planning to take a four-month break at the end of this year.
