Madame Tussauds' unveiled the wax figure yesterday.

Jenna Marbles, real name Jenna Mourey, was the first social superstar to feature in the New York wax museum.

Taking to Instagram, she wrote that "no words can explain how incredible this is".

The figure is the first ever selfie-taking wax figure and fans can take a real selfie with the fake Jenna.

"It's completely surreal (and) such an honour", she wrote, joking "I'm beside myself right now".

Marbles recently collaborated with Kylie Jenner on content for her app, and featured in the YouTube film 'Smosh The Movie'.

She has 15million subscribers, 1.8 billion views and is the number one female on YouTube.

At the unveiling ceremony, Marbles told reporters that she never thought she would get honoured in this way.

"Who thinks that this is going to happen to them in their life? Never. Certainly not by doing that in my room!"

Madame Tussads said the company is "thrilled to launch... the first figure that is selfie taking".

"Instead of taking a photo with the figure this figure will take a photo with you".
