Shiny £150,000 wax figure of UK ex-PM was removed from Madame Tussauds’ World Leaders area a few days after Theresa May's succession in mid-July. Funny fact, Boris Johnson figure remains proudly on show, no matter what.
The waxy-faced PM was immortalised six years ago and stood unmoved by political tides outside a fake 10 Downing Street door.
Now David Cameron’s wax-twin could have some rest in the museum storage, as he is no longer in the company of Barack Obama and Mahatma Gandhi, among others.
“Mr Cameron’s figure will remain in the attraction’s archive, where we keep all of the moulds, heads and hands of every figure we’ve ever made,” a spokesperson for Madame Tussauds told.
And if Theresa May in wax is going to replace him soon at the spot, the museum can’t say for sure: “Traditionally, we haven’t featured likenesses of un-elected prime ministers. However, it is still early days in Mrs May’s administration but if, as it appears, she remains Prime Minister for the foreseeable future, we will review this policy and potentially fill the vacancy outside No 10.”
