When Taiya May Thompson got through to the final of Baby Face she was copying her big brother, Jaiden, who was a finalist five years ago when he was only a few weeks old.
But the little girl, who is 12 months old now, went one step further when our judges chose her as this year’s winner of the competition kindly sponsored by the Spinning Gate Shopping Centre in Leigh.
Her mum and dad, Amber King and Jonathan Thompson who live off Firs Lane in Leigh are delighted that she has won.
Amber, 22, said: “She is very pleasant and smiles a lot, a happy baby but we were surprised when she won out of so many babies.
Rocco Beau Ace Dennon who came second will win a 10 x 8 colour portrait;
Sophie Anne Turnock is third and wins an 8x6 colour portrait;
And Junior Dunn is fourth and also wins an 8x6 colour portrait.
