There’s only one way to really know you’ve made it as a celebrity – and that’s once you’ve been installed into the hallowed halls of the 200-year old Madame Tussauds,

The place is teeming with historical treasures – from the original guillotine that beheaded Marie Antoinette, to Dr Crippen’s glasses, to Elton John’s jumpsuit.

One of the UK’s most loved visitor attractions, Tussauds has always been a barometer of popularity. 

Deciding who the public most want to get close to, and then bringing them to life in exquisite wax detail isn’t easy. Get it right and fans will flock to the figures, get it wrong and hundreds of thousands of pounds and hours will be wasted.

We follow the creation and launch of new wax figures for Little Mix, and YouTube superstar DanTDM. 

Madame Tussauds The Full Wax – Wednesday at 9pm on ITV
