Celebrity Child Model Alert! Guess Which Star This Little Cutie Grew Up To Be?

Section: Kids' Fashion

With her cheeky smile at the camera, her amazing side ponytail and her confident pose, it would be hard not to guess who this little cutie grew up to be…

Alesha Dixon posted these photos of herself as a child model on her Instagram this morning, tagging them as a ‘Flashback Friday’ reminder of her younger years.

‘I loved an over the shoulder! #patperkins,’ she captioned an image of herself wearing a pale pink jacket and cream shorts for a modelling campaign for Pat Perkins.

‘This has to be my favourite! Modelling for @mothercareuk in goofy glasses!!!’ she captioned a second one, this time of her wearing a navy pinafore dress, a red long-sleeved top and a very Eighties side ponytail.


The Britain’s Got Talent judge appears to have passed on her modelling genes to her baby girl, Azura, who was born last October.

She Instagrammed a picture of her five-month-old daughter wearing a pretty headband by designer Roberto Cavalli.

Azure has been accompanying her mum to the BGT auditions, with Alesha telling OK! magazine that her childcare arrangements are working out really well.


‘I took her to three of the auditions, which was great. My mum and partner came too. Azure will always come first but I do think it’s a positive thing that I’m working. I still want to be out there doing things,’ she said.

‘I’ve got a great support system and I do think I’m very lucky that I have. I always knew it was going to be a juggling act, but I’m the type of person who wouldn’t be permanently at home. I’m still ambitious.’
