Adele has given a new MadameTussauds figure her wax-seal of approval and declared: "They've even got my chin right."

The Oscar-winning star has been immortalised by sculptors at the London attraction, who have unveiled a model of the Skyfall singer.

Adele, who became a mother in October, was included in the Queen's Birthday Honours list last month when she was recognised with an MBE.

Her figure is dressed in a black gown, to replicate her look for last year's Grammy Awards performance, and joins stars such as Beyonce, Rihanna, Amy Winehouse and Britney Spears at Tussauds. A replica of the singer is also being displayed at the Amsterdam branch

Adele was not present at the launch but she has already been given a look at the model and said of her double: "That's scary! It's amazing - I feel a bit emotional."

Tussauds spokeswoman Nicole Fenner said: "She is one of the most influential and acclaimed British female artists ever and looks right at home alongside our other pop greats."
