A new-look casting of Simon Cowell is joining the line up at Madame Tussauds Blackpool – and his ex-girlfriend Sinitta has checked out the likeness.

Sinitta said: “Everything is just so perfect and lifelike, from the eyebrows, his ears, the expression in his eyes, he’s even got his chest hair, it’s just genius.

“I’m completely in awe, it was strange at first because I thought it was going to be a spoof and he’d suddenly go ‘Hello darling’, because he’s just so realistic.”

TV’s Mr Nasty will feature within the Big Night In section in the X Factor judge’s houses-themed set at the Blackpool attraction, dressed in his trademark open-buttoned white shirt, and guests can pose as if they themselves are an X Factor judge or contestant.
