A mother from Lincoln, whose two children are regulars at beauty pageants, is starting what is believed to be the country's first magazine dedicated to the events. Leanne Woodall plans to publish Sparkle Girlz in July, aimed at contestants of all ages.
Leanne's 10 year old daughter is already a regular at the events and now her two year old daughter has also started taking part in the competitions. She hopes the magazine will change critics' negative views of the events which she says are becoming more and more popular among children.
