LITTLE Natasha Coupe is one of the "faces" of this year's Children in Need appeal.

The seven-year-old from Denville Road, Blackburn, was one of the young models featured in the Children in Need catalogue this year.

Natasha had her face painted to look like the Children in Need mascot, Pudsey Bear, and modelled clothes.

And she donated £25 of her modelling fee to the appeal.

Her proud mum, Julie, said: "She asked if she could do it because it would be helping other children."

Natasha's modelling career started five years ago when she entered the Miss Pears competition. She has done a range of catalogue work, including a shoot with Rolf Harris.

Natasha, who attends St Annes School, is hoping for a catwalk career when she is older.
