Catriona is the latest Filipino to get her own Madame Tussauds wax figure. In 2019, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach's wax figure was unveiled in Manila before being flown to Madame Tussauds Hong Kong. Boxing champion and senator Manny Pacquiao is set to have his own wax figure, also in Madame Tussauds Hong Kong. – Rappler.com
