Cheryl’s waxwork taken out of Madame Tussauds as she’s ‘no longer relevant’

Alexa, play Fight For This Love


Madame Tussauds in London is planning to remove Cheryl's sculpture as bosses feel she's "no longer relevant".

Cheryl was added to the museum at the height of her fame in 2010, fresh off the success of her original stint as a judge on The X Factor.

Unfortunately for Chezza, her fame has undoubtedly dwindled since her "Fight For This Love" glory days, and Madame Tussauds is planning to store her waxwork in the London archives.

Cheryl's career as a bastion of British culture began in 2002, when she was made part of Girls Aloud. The group would go on to have a nearly unbroken run of UK top 10 hits.

In 2008, Cheryl became a judge on The X Factor, from which point her popularity skyrocketed. She soon began releasing solo material, and Fight For This Love is still unquestionably an anthem of our times.

Simon Cowell brought Cheryl with him to the US in 2011 to launch the American version of the show, but infamously binned her off after a few days and replaced her with Nicole Scherzinger.

Cheryl eventually rejoined the British X Factor in 2014. By the time she was finished with the show in 2015 she had two marriages under her belt and was starting a relationship with One Direction's Liam Payne.

Making a reappearance on The X Factor last year, Cheryl performed her single "Love Made Me Do It" while bizarrely licking her hand. Her latest solo release "Let You" peaked at #57 on the UK charts, and no album was released.

The 36-year-old is currently a judge on The Greatest Dancer, where Curtis Pritchard will be appearing as a receptionist.

A spokesperson for Madame Tussauds said it was "not uncommon" to remove certain waxworks from the museum, adding: "From time to time we do change who we have in the attraction."
