Zoella and her boyfriend Alfie Deyes are joining the likes of One Direction, the Queen and Angelina Jolie with their very own waxworks at Madame Tussauds. Beauty vlogger Zoella – real name Zoe Suggs – and fellow internet star Alfie, who runs the YouTube channel PointlessBlog, will join a host of famous faces at the London attraction later this year.
Their waxworks will appear in a scene of a spare bedroom in their Brighton home, showing them lounging on a bed uploading to their video channels.

"So @PointlessBlog & I have been asked to be made into wax figures for Madame Tussauds!" Zoella tweeted to her fans. "BEYOND EXCITED. Such a cool opportunity :)"
Alfie simply wrote: "ZOE & I ARE GOING TO BE WAX FIGURES IN MADAME TUSSAUDS!!"
The couple had their first sitting for sculptors on Monday, and in the four-hour meeting they agreed to donate their own clothes for their waxworks to wear.
Zoella's main YouTube channel has more than seven million subscribers, while Alfie's PointlessBlog channel has just under four million. In December, Zoella's first book, Girl Online, became the fastest-selling debut novel, after selling more than 78,000 copies in just the first week.

Earlier in the week, 25-year-old Zoella told fans she had some big news to share in a Twitter message. "You will find out the exciting thing tomorrow or the day after!" she wrote. "It's nothing I've ever done before and is in the top 5 coolest things EVER!"
As fans started to speculate and jump to conclusions, she added: "p.s. I am not engaged or pregnant haha."
Ben Sweets, the general manager of Madame Tussauds, said: "We are delighted to be working with Alfie and Zoe. It's a first for the attraction and reflects just how huge these YouTube stars are."
