The Risk wax lyrical about rivals One Direction


Boyband The Risk waxed lyrical about their heroes One Direction after a visit to Madame Tussauds to see their figures.

The One Direction models were unveiled earlier this year after months of work by Madame Tussauds sculptors and stylists.

The Risk, who like chart-toppers One Direction were put together during a series of The X Factor, release their new single in August and hope to follow One Direction into the charts.

Singer Andy Merry said: "One Direction were in The X Factor the year before us, and now they're absolutely huge. We've just announced our brand new single and tour - this time next year it could be us launching wax figures here."

More than 20,000 fans have posed for pictures with the One Direction wax lookalikes since they were unveiled in April.
