MISS UNIVERSE 2018 Catriona Gray is getting her own wax figure at Madame Tussauds.
She is the third Filipino celebrity to be part of the popular wax museum.
Catriona, who is celebrated her 26th birthday in January 6, has just announced the news on her Instagram feed.
Catriona’s wax figure will be unveiled in Manila, and toured in the Madame Tussauds museum in Singapore, Bangkok, and finally Hong Kong.
In September 2018, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong announced Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach as the “first-ever Filipino wax figure” in the museum.
Her wax figure donning a replica of the blue Michael Cinco ball gown she wore during her final walk at the Miss Universe pageant, was unveiled in March 2019.
In December 2019, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong revealed boxing champion Manny Pacquiao to be the newest addition to their “pool of Filipino wax figures.”
His wax figure is set to be unveiled this 2020.

Meanwhile, the January 5 episode of ASAP Natin ‘To marked the kick-off of its 25th anniversary celebration.
ABS-CBN’s long-running variety show became a top trending topic because of Sharon Cuneta’s birthday celebration that took place during this episode.
In her speech, Sharon thanked her husband Senator Kiko Pangilinan who joined her onstage.
“Thank you for being faithful all these years. Kahit hindi niya kamukha si Brad Pitt, at least tayo wala taong problema.”
Sharon also quipped, upon seeing her children onstage: “Ang alam ko apat ang anak ko.”
Frankie and Miel Pangilinan were present that day along with their brother Miguel.
Sharon continued: “Salamat sa lahat ng anak-anakan ko. Thank you, Frankie, Miel and Miguel for giving importance to Mama, and loving me, and being respectful and kind, grateful children.”
According to KC Concepcion, she was unable to attend Sharon’s ASAP birthday celebration due to “personal reasons.”
The Megastar also said that she hoped her children will emulate Judy Ann Santos, Regine Velasquez, and Sarah Geronimo.
