Madame Tussauds Hires 'Tissue Attendant' For One Direction Statues

After Zayn Malik left the band, the museum has brought in backup -- 150 boxes of tissues.

Madame Tussauds has hired a "tissue attendant" for the wax sculptures of One Direction at their museum in London.

After the departure of Zayn Malik, fans have been heartbroken over the loss of the of the 1D singer -- perhaps even to tears. That's why the wax museum has appointed an employee to stand by 1D's figures and hand out Kleenex.

"Directioners that have visited since the news broke have enjoyed seeing all of the boys together and singing along with their songs - many have also been teary eyed, but we've had a delivery of 150 boxes of tissues over the weekend so we're prepared," said Grace Cadden, the current assistant.

And the museum is assuring fans that, although Zayn has left the group, he will not be leaving the exhibit any time soon.

"I want to reassure fans that we will absolutely not be removing Zayn from our One Direction line up - all five boys will remain in the attraction as they have been since their arrival in 2013," said Matt Clarkson, Madame Tussauds marketing manager.

Phew.
