The Olympic Bronze Medalist, World Champion and Dancing on Ice winner, has been in Liverpool to see the new sculpture

The gymnast had to stand still for an hour as the sculptor Louise Giblin covered her with plaster to make the cast.

The gold coloured body cast is owned by a private collector but has been loaned to the Museum of Liverpool for a temporary display.

Highlighting Beth's achievements at the World Championships the year before the London 2012 games, the sculpture shows shows the O2 arena in London, as well as the capitals skyline, both where Beth won her Olympic bronze last summer.

Beth has been telling Heart's Andy Downton about the experience, and also about winning Dancing on Ice.
