Breakout star Susan Boyle will find a place alongside royalty and Hollywood celebrities as she will be immortalised in wax at the Madame Tussauds Museum.

The 49-year-old singer was nicknamed the "hairy angel" by tabloids for her dowdy appearance but made a fortune of USD 15 million with her very first album

I Dreamed A Dream.

The work on Boyle's waxwork, which will go on display at the London tourist hotspot later this year, has already begun.

"She's very excited about this. Susan would never in her wildest dreams have ever imagined she'd one day be a waxwork at Madame Tussauds. It's unbelievable," said a source close to the singer.

The wax model will reflect SuBo's off-duty look, casual clothes, little make-up and unkempt hair.

Boyle's will be one of just eight new waxwork figures, costing 150,000 pounds each to make.

The wax museum was keen to get Boyle as she is very popular among American tourists.

"Susan Boyle is hugely popular especially among Americans. It's a big coup to get her," said a source at Tussauds.
