Clothing guru Gok Wan admitted his new waxwork “kind of freaks” him out
The host of Channel 4s “How to Look Good Naked” has been added to the Liverpool branch of Madame Tussauds,but Gok feels uncomfortable with it as he doesn’t feel like a celebrity.
“It’s really weird, I don’t really understand fame, I don’t really understand being a celebrity because I don’t really see myself as one. I’m quite down to earth,” Gok said.
“I think it’s because I spent ten years behind the camera as the stylist, as part of the entourage, in the shadows, only speaking when I’m spoken to kind of thing.
“Now the kind of tables have turned and things like the waxwork – which is unbelievable that people would spend that kind of money on a replica of me, to put into a room that people would then pay to go and see – kind of freaks me out.
“If I think about it too much it sends me a bit mental so I tend not to and kind of just treat it as it is, which is ‘Oh that’s lovely, it’s a waxwork, it looks a bit like me’.”
