Feline friends: Ed Sheeran waxwork unveiled at cat cafe in London

Ed Sheeran has played to packed stadiums around the world – now he, or rather a wax figure of him, can add a cat cafe to the list of locations.

Waxwork museum Madame Tussauds on Tuesday unveiled a model of the chart-topping British musician at Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium in London, where customers sip their drinks surrounded by felines.

The figure of Sheeran is dressed in a checked shirt, bears the singer's many tattoos and is holding a guitar – as the cafe's cats eat treats and play around the model.

"Knowing what a pet-lover he is, launching the figure at London's renowned cat cafe felt like something the man himself would surely approve of," Edward Fuller, general manager at Madame Tussauds in London, said in a statement.

The figure will soon head to the museum, where visitors can see it from next week.
