A BUST of Winston Churchill has been created as part of a new exhibition of the former Prime Minister.

Sculptor Jethro Crabb made the bust from clay, which will be covered in silicon to form a mould, which will then be filled with wax to create the finished waxwork head.

Individual hairs will then be inserted, before the lifesize figure is put together.

Mr Crabb previously spent eight years at Madame Tussauds and is currently completing a waxwork figure of US President Joe Biden for the National Presidential Wax Museum in America.

He also made many of the puppets for the new Spitting Image show.

To make the Churchill figure as authentic as possible, designers are working with his original tailor, hat and shoemakers to create bespoke clothing.

The exhibition is set to open at Blenheim Palace later this year.
