Two tots have landed contracts with an elite modelling agency after winning a children’s photographic competition in the Bexleyheath Broadway Shopping Centre.

About 2,000 youngsters took part in the free-to-enter Model Tots competition, hoping to win either the “winning tot” or “winning baby” award.

And it was a case of keeping it in the family for Lula Evans, who won the baby category, because her proud mum was also victorious in a handful of similar competitions as a baby.

“I actually won a few of them and took a fair number of prizes including a teddy bear, which I still have after all these years, but nothing like the modelling contract Lula has won,” she said.

“I suppose you could say we’re keeping it in the family as far as winning competitions is concerned.”

Lee O’Brien, 3, from Welling, was named winning tot in the ages 3-5 category and his mum Michaela Curran could not have been happier.

“It was overwhelming to see Leo chosen as one of the main winners and to get such a fantastic top prize,” said Ms Curran, 22, the toddler’s aunt.
