Adele is the latest celebrity to be created in wax by specialists at Madame Tussauds.

Here sculptor Louis Wiltshire works on the clay head that will be used to create the wax mould for the star's new wax figure at Madame Tussauds in London.

Work is now well underway on the Oscar Winner's figure which will be portrayed in a dramatic performance pose at the London and Amsterdam attractions in July.
