Watch: Little Mix get waxwork lookalikes at Madame Tussauds

 Waxworks of girl group Little Mix have been unveiled at Madame Tussauds London. 

All four original members have been honoured with statues, including Jesy Nelson who departed from the band last October. 

She's set alongside remaining singers Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards in the outfits they wore in the 2019 music video for their song Bounce Back.

Nelson wears a huge, furry purple hat and pink snakeskin trousers, Pinnock sports a pink blazer, Thrilwall's in a bright green dress and gloves while Edwards wears thigh-high white stockings.

The waxworks were revealed for the first time on Wednesday as fans had the chance to get up close and personal with them.

Nelson announced she would be leaving Little Mix last year, claiming being in the band had "taken a toll" on her mental health. 

"I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard," the 30-year-old said at the time.

"There comes a time in life when we need to reinvest in taking care of ourselves rather than focusing on making other people happy, and I feel like now is the time to begin that process."

The other members of the X Factor-winning group declared their support for Nelson, who has since signed a solo record deal with Polydor. 

She had previously spoken about her struggles with anxiety and spoke about the toll trolling had taken on her mental health in BBC documentary Odd One Out.
