Now gaze deeply into the soulless eyes of this monstrosity, which looks more like a Serbian cage-fighter than its intended subject, Meryl Streep:

Theresa May is the latest public figure to be turned into a waxwork (well, preserved as one), but Madame Tussauds were not going to mess this one up, even if the production department did express fears the real Theresa would be finished before wax version.

Still, they got the best wax sculptor that money could buy to immortalise the PM and the likeness, for once, is beyond dispute. Though it seems whoever did the job might not have had her best interests at heart, as they've chosen to depict her in the exact red suit she wore whilst holding hands with Trump.

Yes, the very suit she wore the night she botched the election she didn't need to call.

The blame though, must surely lie with May's team, who failed to realise that a woman conducting her job like a walking waxwork should probably not be enshrined as one.

But all is not lost. It'll make a fair few candles we can use come the nuclear apocalypse she's insisting on dragging us into with Trump, even if it does read 'This Lady Is Not For Burning' on the plaque at her feet.
