The Madame Tussauds museum in London has pulled the waxwork of singer Cheryl Cole, simply known as Cheryl, allegedly reasoning that she “may no longer be relevant.”
The wax figure of the former Girls Aloud singer first appeared in the museum in 2010, having been among Britain’s most famous stars in the 2000s, though her popularity seems to have reached its maturity.
According to a report by The Sun, via Independent, Madame Tussauds fears that Cheryl—who now appears on the BBC’s The Greatest Dancer—isn’t as relevant anymore, and that visitors might be less interested about seeing her wax model in its collection.
The statue is now being stored in the London’s archives, the report claims.
A spokesperson for the museum addresses that removing waxworks isn’t an “uncommon thing to do” as it refreshes its celebrity lineup “from time to time.” They add that Madame Tussauds ensures those featured “best represent” the figures that people currently wish to see the most.
I kinda feel a bit sorry for Cheryl (unsure of her current surname) right now with everyone joking about her Madame Tussaud's Waxwork being taken down from display. It's just so typical of people in this country.— Buzz Killington (@Rockerfemme) August 17, 2019

I agree - they should have removed the one on the left years ago. pic.twitter.com/j1CO1eRrEg
