Legendary soap barmaid Bet Lynch is kissed so much by Coronation Street fans that bosses at Madame Tussauds are having to take special measures to protect her this Christmas.
The feisty barmaid appeals to all ages and genders. Whether a peck on the cheek from a young fan, a cheeky smooch from an ageing admirer or a fond farewell from an old friend, blonde bombshell Bet is a favourite for a little peck from visitors to the Madame Tussauds attraction in Blackpool.
The leopard-print clad pint-puller gets more action from kiss-happy fans at Madame Tussauds Blackpool that she even outshines beauties including Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Lady Gaga.
Being particularly popular, Bet’s figure has demanded a lot of attention from the studio team – making her the most retouched figure on display at the attraction.
Bosses at Madame Tussauds Blackpool say Bet’s figure is touched up at least twice as much as any other figure at the venue – especially at Christmas when mistletoe kissers pay the figure particular attention.
She’ll undoubtedly be one of the star attractions of the new Rovers Return’s Christmas On The Cobbles event, which sees wax figures of the biggest stars of the Street in a special Christmas scene at Madame Tussauds Blackpool.
