Pop sensation Dua Lipa has chosen to spend her summer months in Blackpool, it can exclusively be revealed today. 

And this will be no ordinary vacation or ordinary arrival for the three times Brit Awards winner! Dua Lipa will arrive in the famous UK seaside resort in style to join a line-up of other celebrities at Madame Tussauds on Blackpool’s promenade. 

Fans will be able to get close up and personal with the wax figure and princess of pop who has previously joked that her body double is now taking bookings for all of her private engagements! 

Dua is particularly delighted that she will get to spend her 27th birthday in Blackpool this year! And Madame Tussauds Blackpool, which has the figure on loan from Madame Tussuads London, has an extra special treat in store for the star on her special day, August 22nd

Dua, who is worth an estimated £20M and with a whooping 85M adorning followers on Instagram, has previously been nominated for 15 Brit Awards, eight Grammy Awards and seven NME Awards, winning six, three and one respectively. She was also the first female artist to receive five nominations in a single year at the Brit Awards. 

Kyle Woodcock, Senior Attractions Manager at Madame Tussauds, Blackpool, said: “We are delighted Dua has chosen Blackpool for her summer retreat this year and we have been able to secure this loan from Madame Tussauds in London. 

“She is joining a line-up of other celebs in our popular Festival Fields section and we are confident Dua will be a huge hit!” 

The creation of Dua’s wax figure was an in-depth process, with a dedicated team of sculptors taking hundreds of precise measurements and photographs to ensure as close a match as possible. 

Featuring more than 80 famous faces, Madame Tussauds Blackpool gives visitors the chance to get up close with their heroes, from sporting stars to TV favourites, movie icons, singing sensations and everything in between. 

It takes a team of 25 artists to work on one wax figure, spending a total of 800 hours collectively. This includes: 350 hours to sculpt the figure, 187 hours to insert a head of hair and 30 hours to make a set of teeth. 

Dua is one of 2,000 wax figures on display around the world, with roughly 150kg of clay used to sculpt each figure equating to 23 stone, the average weight of a tiger.
