Zayn Malik announced his shock departure from One Direction less than a week ago, and to be honest we’re all still struggling to come to terms with this very difficult time.
And it seems as though we’re not the only ones still getting teary-eyed when we remember that the brooding beauty has quit, with Madame Tussauds London now revealing that they’ve had to appoint an actual tissue attendant to help out super emosh fans.
We feel you, guys, we feel you.
The attraction has seen a dramatic increase in the amount of fans flocking to Zayn’s perf waxwork, and they understandably can’t control their reaction to seeing the five boys together as One Direction in the themed area dedicated to the band, with the attendant required to hand out much needed tissues to inconsolable guests.
And, if you can believe it, the role was first created two years ago when the figures were first launched and fans were overcome with tears of happiness at seeing their idols up close…Well, in wax form anyways.
Ah, happier days.
Grace Cadden is the current assistant on hand at the attraction and she commented: “The One Direction figures are some of the most popular in the attraction, and they have been since they arrived.
“Directioners that have visited since the news broke have enjoyed seeing all of the boys together and singing along with their songs – many have also been teary eyed, but we’ve had a delivery of 150 boxes of tissues over the weekend so we’re prepared.”
Phew, thank bloomin’ goodness for that.
On a more positive note, Madame Tussauds marketing manager Matt Clarkson has revealed that Zayn might have walked away from the biggest band on the planet in real life, but he’s there to stay in the land of waxworks.
He shared: “I want to reassure fans that we will absolutely not be removing Zayn from our One Direction line up – all five boys will remain in the attraction as they have been since their arrival in 2013.
“We will continue to play their music non-stop in their dedicated setting, and the Tissue Attendant will be on hand when needed.”
Let’s just hope that a Naughty Boy waxwork doesn’t pop up and steal him away, eh Louis Tomlinson?
