Olly is due to greet fans outside the attraction on the Promenade at around 4pm.

He said: “There is no greater honour than having a wax figure created, it means I’ll be immortalised for years to come among the other famous faces at Madame Tussauds Blackpool.

“I hear there was great demand for a figure of me to be made, so I can’t wait to be the one of the first to see it first, the whole thing was a great experience from start to finish.”
