  • UK: A schoolgirl who took up modelling after she was bullied about her appearance has landed a modelling contract.

    Ellie Burton, 14, was persuaded to take up modelling by her mother after a group of cruel school bullies left her with low self-esteem.

    The teenager signed up with a local modelling agency and was stunned when she was invited to take part in a casting for Marks & Spencer.

    Ellie beat hundreds of other youngsters and impressed judges so much that she was invited to model the department store’s Back To School range.
