The likenesses have taken months of work by Madame Tussauds sculptors and stylists, and even the chart-topping group were impressed by the results.

 

After being introduced to their doubles, Zayn Malik said: "They look wicked, they're bang on."

 

Around 60 devotees of the group - whose hits include What Makes You Beautiful and Live While We're Young - were on hand to see the models unveiled at the London attraction today.

 

They will be there for 12 weeks before emulating the real-life boy band and heading off on a world tour, visiting New York, Sydney and other locations yet to be announced.

 

The group themselves were given a sneak peek at the finished models earlier this week, with Niall Horan taken aback by the experience.

 

"This is weird - he's wearing my actual shoes," he said.

 

And heart-throb Harry Styles said: "It's amazing and such an honour."

 

One Direction topped the charts for a third time last month with their Comic Relief single One Way Or Another.
