‘World’s Worst’ Waxworks Collection Sold


Louis Tussauds House of Wax in the English seaside town of Great Yarmouth had been quietly disappointing customers for over 50 years when it rose to prominence in 2008 after being labelled “the world’s worst waxworks.” The museum shut down last year after owners June and Peter Hayes retired, but this month the collection of unlife-like models of stars, athletes and royalty found a new home when they were snapped up by an anonymous buyer from the Czech Republic. The waxwork heads above, if you haven’t already guessed, are of ’70s heartthrobs and “Starsky and Hutch” actors Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul. Of course they are. (Rex Features: Albanpix Ltd)

Victoria and David Beckham
These models of fashion guru Victoria Beckham and her footballer husband David must have been made around 2000 or 2001, judging by the haircuts. Definitely a case for impoundment by the fashion police. (Rex Features: Albanpix Ltd)


Joan Collins
Joan Collins thrilled audiences around the world in the 1980s as the villainous Alexis Colby in the TV series “Dynasty.” She doesn’t look too thrilled here, though. (Rex Features: Albanpix Ltd)
