La Roux star Elly Jackson was so impressed with a replica figurine of herself made by a fan, she keeps it on her mantelpiece
La Roux's Elly Jackson keeps a figurine of herself on her mantelpiece.
The 'In For The Kill' hitmaker was given the unusual doll by a fan, who made is especially for her, and decided to keep it as it was such a good replica.
She said: "The weirdest but the most amazing thing I've been given was a figurine of myself. I was like, 'Oh my God, where did you get this? I didn't know they made figures of me.' It's the kind of thing that goes through your manager - and he told me that he made it himself. It looks like it's from Hamleys toy store. I have it up on my mantelpiece."
Despite her fame, the 22-year-old singer insists she's not usually star struck and avoids celebrities as much as possible.
She said: "I'd never usually approach a celebrity ever, but when I saw Fever Ray I couldn't help myself. I admire her and her music so much. I just had to say hello and tell her how much I love what she does.
"She's a very strange, shy lady and I basically got heart palpitations, which I've never got before, even standing next to Danny DeVito, which was quite weird."
