Adele has praised her "amazing" Madame Tussauds waxwork.

The Skyfall singer - who won an Oscar earlier this year - can lay claim to a life-size statue of her very own as the popular tourist attraction unveiled a doppelganger in her honour at its London museum today.

Adele had a chance to sneak a peek at her waxwork prior to its public launch and commented: "That's scary! It's amazing. I feel a bit emotional."

The 24-year-old singer - who has largely been out of the spotlight since giving birth to her first son, Angelo, with boyfriend Simon Konecki in October 2012 - also gave the double her stamp of approval.

She quipped: "They've even got my chin right!"

Adele's waxwork is styled after her look at the Grammy Awards in February 2012, which is a night the Someone Like You hitmaker no doubt cherishes, as she took home of the six prestigious US trophies for her multi-platinum selling album, 21.

Madame Tussauds London's PR manager Nicole Fenner commented: "Adele is quite simply one of the world's most successful, celebrated and popular performers and rightly deserves a place here at Madame Tussauds London.

"We wanted to replicate her as a dynamic performer and hopefully we've achieved that. She is one of the most influential and acclaimed British female artists ever and looks right at home alongside our other pop greats."

The attraction will go on display at Madame Tussauds museums in London and Amsterdam later this month.
