Madame Tussauds takes down ‘One Direction’ wax statues

After being on display for 7 years, the band has been removed from the museum . The exhibit claims to have the biggest collection of celebrity wax figures in the world. What could be the reason behind eliminating the former pop band? Keep reading to find out more!

  • One Direction consisted of 5 members including Nail Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Laim Payne, Harry Styles and Zayn Malik.
  • They all have a collective net worth of $340 million.
  • The boys parted ways in 2015, soon after Zayn Malik decided to leave the group.

The wax statues of the group were unveiled in 2013, 3 years after the band was formed. It took 2 months for 20 craftsmen to make the masterpieces. Ever since their display, they have been a great source of attraction for the fans. 

After the band crumbled, the members started pursuing their solo careers. Their statues no longer represent unanimity. Therefore, the museum decided to take them down after 1D's 10th anniversay in July. In a statement, the wax exhibit revealed that:

'With each member of the band's continuing success in their solo careers we felt this anniversary was a fitting moment for the figures to bow out and end their tenure at the attraction as a five-piece.'

‘Directioners’ are devastated by the news. Madame Tussauds does not plan on displaying the solo figures of the boys anytime soon. The boys may have been removed from the exhibit but they will never be removed from the hearts of their fans.
