But maybe the youngster's biggest tragedy is that her mother, Jayne, 31, is in no hurry to paint a picture of how it used to be. 'We spend about £300 a month on beauty treatments for her. But, around big cities, girls have got to be more forward and act older than they are. 'I don't understand why people get so upset about it. At first, I think she is criticising the organisers for encouraging the children to look too adult. She means the girls - some of whom were still toddling - weren't allowed to look adult enough. Jayne was at her side, helping her practise her sashay. ' There was a jaw-dropping moment in the film - Sasha, Beauty Queen At 11, to be shown on July 14 on BBC3 at 9pm - when the pageant veteran charged with showing Sasha the ropes demonstrates how to walk like a beauty queen. Jayne talks about Sasha's media 'career', believing her daughter is a bona fide celebrity, and is proud to have been instrumental in making that happen 'Back home, we have to buy an adult dress and get it altered to fit, but there they are totally geared up for girls her age. The girls are encouraged to put on masses of make-up. I was amazed at how much there was to learn, but I knew I was in the hands of the experts.' Jayne and her husband, Martin, spent £26,000 on Sasha's presents, which included a swimming pool It seems that the main lesson learned was that her darling daughter could look like a plastic Barbie, and be rewarded with a sash to prove it.
All about the look: Sasha Bennington is just 11 but her mother loves the way she looks Jayne is talking breezily about how Sasha had her first set of false nails glued on at eight, and now enjoys the sort of rigorous beauty regime - hair extensions, fake tans, pedicures - that was once the preserve of porn stars and Dolly Parton, not school children from Burnley in Lancashire. 'Because this country doesn't have a tradition of this sort of thing, the organisers didn't quite know how to play things. They kept saying they wanted the girls to look natural. The pair took a documentary team with them, and found what you'd expect at a U. beauty pageant held in a down-market-looking Texan hotel: mums parading their daughters like prize poodles, kids who look disturbingly like mini Celine Dions, and enough lipgloss to pose a drowning risk to the tiniest entrants. She explains how to turn your body round while holding the judges' eyes, before flipping your head round at the last minute 'like that Exorcist child'. It was just like a big theatrical event, like being transported to another world.'Underpinning the fairy tale, though, was a deep desire to win. 'People always said she looked like a Barbie in Miss British Isles, but the girls in Texas truly did,' enthuses Jayne. I watched them on the catwalk, with their arms held so precisely, walking slowly and turning just so.

At 11, Sasha Bennington is too young to remember the days when Jordan was just a country and being branded 'fake' was something to be ashamed of. 'Perhaps it's different in country areas, where they don't need to grow up so fast. Jayne tells me she was uneasy about the way the contest was run, citing odd rules about how much make-up should be applied to those pre-pubescent faces and including confusing clauses about how contestants could bring make-up artists but should try to look 'natural'. ' Earlier this year, Jayne was given free rein with the blusher when Sasha became the first British child to dip a scarlet-tipped toe into the American pageant scene. Why else would you be able to buy make-up for pre-teens at Boots? 'All the mums were up at 6am so they could get started on hair and make-up.'And everything is . You have to spend £2,000 on a pageant dress over there. Sasha just ran through all the dresses, she was in her element.
Why else would you be able to buy make-up for pre-teens at Boots? Former glamour model Jayne and daughter Sasha attend beauty pageants all over the world It wasn't an altogether beautiful experience. They take it so seriously, which can only be good for someone like Sasha. 'We went to this huge shop where there was every colour and style you could imagine.
' Just over a year ago, there was fuss galore when Jayne entered Sasha (then ten) in the junior Miss British Isles competition - Britain's first adult-style beauty pageant for children.
I'd love to have those sort of pictures, nice pictures, rather than ones you hide away because you can't bear to look at them.' It was about the same time she started dabbling in beauty pageants that Jayne declared she wanted her daughter to be the next Jordan. She's a great role model, this really down-to-earth woman who has made a big success of her life.
