Little Hollie Houston, from Larches, Preston, won the hearts of people across Lancashire with her cheeky grin, raking in thousands of votes to be named this year’s Top Tot.

Hollie, 11 months, beat off competition from over a hundred other youngsters to take this year’s title, sponsored by Rascals Party and Play Centre.

She will pick up an engraved silver salver, framed portrait, bumper bag of goodies plus a play centre prize from Rascals.

Her mum Jennifer Mason, 28, said: “I couldn’t be more proud. I’ve been ringing up everyone in my family and telling them. They’ve been jumping around the house chanting ‘winner, winner!’”

The bubbly little girl, who celebrates her first birthday on December 8, is no stranger to the limelight, as she stars as a model for Wirral-based clothing company Holly’s Baby Boutique. So when Jennifer and dad Kieran, 36, found out about the Top Tots competition, they knew Hollie was perfect for the role.

Jennifer, who works as an admin assistant, said: “I’ve taken hundreds of pictures of her. She always has a smile on her face. She’s the happiest baby I’ve ever known. She first smiled at one week old and she hasn’t stopped since.

“She’s only 10 months old but she’s already got all her teeth. She was born with her two bottom teeth!”
