Yes, really…

Justin Bieber is no more. Not only is he going to retire, but he's going to be removed from his pedestal, stripped and then melted down for candles. OK, OK, before you call the police on us, we mean Justin Bieber the waxwork, not Justin Bieber the popstar – even though the latter's ability to hold the same 'oh woe is me I'm a puppy dog boo hoo' expression for hours on end could make him a very good waxwork.

The New York outpost of Madame Tussauds has been forced to retire his likeness, because he has been ruined by so much groping from over-zealous Beliebers. 'With no ropes or barriers to stop them, thousands of fans have had their photographs taken with him since then — but it has taken its toll,' someone from the museum has said.[

And though the staff have tried to look after the waxwork and maintain it to stop it from, like, crumbling under the fingertips of a never-ending queue of giggling tweens, they couldn't keep up with the Beliebers' lustful strokes. As a result, the waxwork 'no longer does justice either to the star or to the attraction.' Oops.

And – shock news – Tokyo's models of One Direction look like they're suffering the same fate. Japanese fans have been mobbing the five waxwork figures of Harry, Zayn, Niall, Liam and Louis, stroking them, kissing them and even offering them cookies.

Well, they always say you hurt the ones you love the most.
