A chance to wax lyrical about Beyonce

She looks like Beyonce. She stands like Beyonce. She even dresses like Beyonce. But is she?

It is, on closer inspection, a waxwork that might even fool her rapper husband Jay-Z.

Madame Tussauds has unveiled the waxworks figure, donned in nude fishnet tights , gold ankle boots and a revealing gold leotard adorned with pearls and tassels.

Visitors can be forgiven for doing a double-take on viewing the mannequin, complete with microphone, in London's Regent's Park, where it was revealed for the first time on Wednesday before being moved to the Marylebone Street attraction.

Human fans - as well as dozens of ducks - have been taking a keen interest in the waxwork.

They have been running up to the double of the 32-year-old Texas-born star to have selfies taken.

Besides her singing achievements since beginning with girl band Destiny's Child, Beyonce has enjoyed highly-acclaimed cameo roles in films such as Dreamgirls and Goldmember.
