This is a dtory about a mother, who wants to make a celebrity out of her child.
Vigoroustraining, no carbs after 7pm and hours spent doing hair and make-up. This is what her daughter gets instead of playing with her classmates in the streets.
A mum-of-two to Chelsea, eight, and Tia Louise, eight months, 30-year-old Natasha from Corby, Northamptonshire, believes nothing is more important than preparing her eldest daughter for a future of fame.
And she will stop at nothing to get her there.
Despite letters of complaint from Chelsea’s school about the make-up she wears, Natasha says her daughter must look her best in case a talent scout passes her on the school run.
Natasha, who lives with husband Paul, 31, a forklift truck driver, says: “I’d love nothing more than for Chelsea to make it as a celeb.
“There are so many other girls who want to be famous so I have to push Chelsea hard and make sure she doesn’t miss out on a big break.
She says: “Chelsea and I love Cheryl Cole and I’d love her to become as famous as her.
“Cheryl isn’t the best singer in the industry but she is beautiful and an amazing dancer so I make sure Chelsea works on every aspect of dance and singing as well as her looks so she has no weaknesses.
“When she had reached the top of the class for her dancing I made the teachers audition her for the teenage class too. At first they didn’t want to take her because of her age.
“But I persuaded them to watch her dance and they let her in.”
Despite claiming Chelsea enjoys attending 14 hours of competitions and classes a week, Natasha resorts to offering rewards when her daughter complains of being too tired to go.
With travel, classes, competitions, outfits and make-up, Natasha spends £500 a month on her daughter’s busy lifestyle.
She says: “I spend at least 30 per cent of everything we earn on Chelsea.
“I’d spend hundreds of thousands if I could, but I already lie to my husband and tell him the private lessons are only £10 an hour rather than £35.”
She says: “If Chelsea wanted cosmetic surgery I’d back her.
“I think she’s beautiful but if it would help her get ahead I don’t have a problem.
“I’m flat-chested and I worry that her confidence could be knocked if she turns out to be too.
