MEET the nine-year-old model and actress from St Helens who will be strutting her stuff on the catwalks of both New York and London Fashion weeks.

Lilly-Ella Redcliffe from Dentons Green, who has appeared in small movie roles as well as modelling for North West businesses, was thrilled when she received the news that she had secured three fashion week jobs in the next two months.

The Rivington Primary pupil, who also attends Helen O'Grady Drama Academy and Paparazzi Dance, will be walking the catwalks in designer outfits by British designer Krissie Colton for Me Clothing and Italian designer Athea Couture.

Her proud beauty therapist mum Emma Redcliffe, 36, said: "This is such an amazing, huge opportunity for a little girl who loves to be in front of the camera.

"She is really excited and grateful for this experience and me and her dad Mark are really proud of her.

"We can't believe this has happened and I can't wait to go with her.

"She will be going to Society Fashion Week in New York first and walking for Me Clothing then coming to London and walking for Krissie again as well as the Italian designer. Lilly-Ella is really looking forward to it, she's really made up, she loves dressing up anyway but to do something like this is amazing."
