“I had two sessions with the remarkable Tony Webb, who designed the waxwork in Yorkshire and it was incredible,” Chrissie said.

“Tony has made waxworks globally for all the famous museums including Madame Tussauds. We went through some of Cardi B’s iconic red carpet poses, rehearsed them and then I stood on the models spinning wheel, in the chosen position for the final waxwork pose and all my measurements were taken.

“During the second session, I stood in the same position and a gooey clay-like plaster was smeared all over my body. Once [it was] dry it was carefully cut away from me and made into a cast to create Cardi B’s body for the waxwork which is now on display at the Hollywood Wax Museum.

“It was just such a remarkable experience to have worked for such an amazing team and as if I am Cardi B’s waxwork body! What a story to tell - it’s ace!”

When asked how she found out about the waxwork, Chrissie told The Yorkshire Post: “A casting went out to the body of a waxwork model; I went to the audition and was hired in the room straight away.

“They didn’t tell us who the body double was for until we were in the room. Then I was told it was for Cardi B.

“I was so excited when I saw the waxwork because knowing the experience I had of going to the studio and being measured and moulded was just incredible and knowing how much work had gone into it made me feel amazing. It took a year to create.”
