Madame Tussauds is to make a waxwork model of Suffolk singing star Ed Sheeran.

The songwriter, who grew up in Framlingham, will appear alongside dozens of famous faces at one of the company’s USA museums.

Sheeran appeared on The One Show on BBC1 on Thursday where he said it had taken three hours to measure him.

He added that being fitted in his underwear was “one of the weirdest experiences of my life”.

“They put me in skin-tight grey shorts and vest, which doesn’t leave much to the imagination,” he said.

“Then they just measured me for three hours, prodded and poked and filmed it.”

Madame Tussauds could not confirm when the waxwork would be ready for display or which museum it would go in.
