One Direction’s wax figures have been removed from Madame Tussauds in London after seven years of being on display and four years after the band split.

The waxworks of the boy band, who split in 2016, were moved off the floor of the well-known tourist attraction this week despite all the members having their own success.

According to The Sun, there are no plans for the singers to be displayed alone as updates are constant as it “reacts to the celebrity landscape” in Madame Tussauds museum in London.

Madame Tussauds said the decision to remove the figures was made after the band’s tenth anniversary this summer.

The band consisted of Harry Styles, 26, Liam Payne, 27, Niall Horan, 26, Louis Tomlinson, 28, and Zayn Malik, 27, who formed One Direction in 2010 on the X Factor when Simon Cowell put them together.

Each member had auditioned for the show individually but did not end up making it to the Judge’s Houses stage as solo acts.

One Direction went on to have a very successful career selling more than 70million records and their waxworks were unveiled in 2013.

The boy band won 200 awards including seven Brit Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards, six Billboard Music Awards, seven American Music Awards, and 28 Teen Choice Award during their time together.

The former group has been focusing on their solo careers over the last four years, since going on hiatus in March 2016.

According to The Sun, Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall has said that her group should get waxworks at Madame Tussauds, adding: “You can melt down Olly Murs and make it into us.”

She said: “I think we deserve one. Budgeting permitting, get those four waxworks out there because come on, we’ve earned our place.”

Cheryl Tweedy also had her waxwork removed from the wax museum last summer.
