Los Angeles - Sam Smith will unveil his wax model at Madame Tussauds San Francisco next Monday.

The Stay With Me hitmaker will be performing in Golden Gate Park at the Outside Lands music festival on Sunday and the next day he will attend the grand unveiling of his statue.

Chris Connors, General Manager of Madame Tussauds, said: "Madame Tussauds is honoured to celebrate Sam Smith's musical accomplishments here in San Francisco and to welcome him into our effervescent Music Room. We can't wait to offer his fans a chance to get up close to one of the best-loved singers of his generation."

Sam, 23, had to sit for multiple hours so his replica could be made and underwent a complete 3D scan to ensure the proportions of his model are correct.

He also had to provide moulds of his hands, have his exact shoe size measured and sit patiently as the team matched his eye and hair colour.

The Lay Me Down singer's doppelganger will join a galaxy of star models, including Adele and Sir Elton John, that are also on display in the Music Room.

Visitors to Madame Tussauds San Francisco will be able to view Sam's model from 10 August.
