David Bowie fans can now pose with the Ziggy Stardust-era waxwork.

The iconic museum has unveiled a new model of Bowie, clad in the massively recognisable striped outfit.

The addition of the new Ziggy piece is part of their ‘Music Festival’ experience.

Tim Waters, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, said: “David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust transcends generations and music genres, making him the ultimate headliner to launch our new Music Festival zone.

“We were honoured to work with his estate in what would have been his 75th year and play our small part in keeping his inimitable legacy alive for generations to come.”

The team at Madame Tussauds worked with Bowie's estate to create the new waxwork, and it was made using data sourced from his sitting in 1983.

It is the second Bowie waxwork to be featured.

The 'Music Festival Zone' also features Jimi Hendrix, Stormzy, Ed Sheeran,  Amy Winehouse and more.

Waters explained: “With our new Music Festival experience, we’ve captured the magic of live music, with legends you literally could not see perform together anywhere else, in a way that only Madame Tussauds London could.

“There’s also the added bonus of no muddy fields or main-stage clashes to contend with.”

Madame Tussauds London’s Music Festival experience opens tomorrow (April 1).
