Recently-married Cheryl Cole has been given a makeover at Madame Tussauds ahead of her TV return on The X Factor.

The singer - who tied the knot with French restaurateur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini in a secret ceremony three weeks ago - was restyled four years after being added to the London attraction.

Stylists at Tussauds swapped the short orange skirt and purple silk top of old for a chic look with tight leather trousers and sleeveless metallic tunic top, as well as killer heels.

Tussauds marketing manager Matthew Clarkson said: "It's time to refresh her look especially now she's about to burst back onto our TV screens with imminent return of the X-Factor."
