Madame Tussaud’s, a day out for all the family that has always been beyond our comprehension, is a mixed bag when it comes to recreating life-like waxworks of the rich, famous, and slightly familiar. Take ours, for example. We could’ve sworn it looks like someone else entirely!
Not Anne Kirkbride’s, however. Just look at the spooky resemblance between the husky Corrie legend with her sultry smoker’s drawl, scrotum-like skin and come-to-bed highlights, and the wax effigy to her right which, to all intents and purposes, is dead to the world. Well, shut that door!
And as if that wasn’t enough, this smooth-to-the-touch re-imagining of Deirdre Barlow can be found not in London’s Madame Tussaud’s, no. Not in New York’s. Not even in Shanghai’s! Hold your noses, folks, because this one’s in Blackpool! So not only do you get to blink three times at a shop dummy whilst raising your hands incredulously – you get to do it in a complete shithole!
