Ariana Grande's new wax figure looks absolutely nothing like her

Waxworks might have been around for hundreds of years (Madame Tussaud was established in 1835!), but if recent headlines are anything to go by, it's an art form that's not faring well these days.

Last month, Ireland's National Wax Museum hit the headlines because of a Daenerys Targaryen waxwork that bore a stronger resemblance to Legolas and/or David Bowie than the Mother of Dragons.

Now, Madame Tussauds has come under fire for its new Ariana Grande waxwork, unveiled earlier this week.

Dressed in the singer's signature thigh high boots with an oversized sweater, fashion-wise, it's on the ball. The waxwork's hair also bears a convincing resemblance to the 25-year-old's famous ponytail.

As for everything else? Well, if fan reactions are anything to go by, it leaves a lot to be desired.

These are some of the best reactions to the waxwork on social media:

What do you think? Is the waxwork of the 'Thank U, Next' singer really that bad?
