Hollie's mum, Heather said: "Hollie loves entering the pageants, she enjoys every minute of it and has made a lot of friends.

"She is very outgoing to start with and this has just increased her confidence."

Hollie lives in Padiham with her mum and dad Stuart and she is looking forward to starting at Padiham Green Primary School.

Hollie will compete in the Princess section for ages four to six and Darcy-Mae, who has only just turned one, will be in the mini section for children aged one to three.

The pageant will be held at Chorley's Masonic Hall on Saturday, September 22nd.

"It has really helped to build her confidence also."

Darcy-Mae lives in Read with her parents, Tammy Kelly and Jordan York, and she has two big brothers, Riley (five) and three-year-old Jordan.

Tammy said: "Darcy-Mae loves going to the shows, she laughs and smiles all the time.

"This is the sort of thing I would have loved to have taken part in but never had the confidence but nothing seems to phase her."
