One of Britain’s youngest beauty pageant queens has told of vicious bullying she suffered at the hands of her peers who beat her with hockey sticks.

Schoolgirl Sienna Demontis, from Derby, is only 13 but has already won Miss Galaxy UK, making her one of the country’s youngest beauty queens.

But her success has not come without a price and her mother, Dee Thompson, has revealed the shocking scale of bullying Sienna has endured for her passion.

‘She has been surrounded by girls, she has been hit with a hockey stick, been called names, been told she only won because she had makeup on,’ said Ms Thompson.

I think people do find it uncomfortable that she is so young, and that’s the thing.’

The youngster started out after uploading snaps of herself from a photoshoot and uploading them to a modelling website.

Since then, the teen has been competed in several international pageants, appeared on TV adverts and modelled for Disney.

 Sienna will feature on the BBC’s Inside Out tonight, in which she tells the programme: ‘There were some people that were kind of like negative towards it.

‘I don’t think your age matters on doing pageants, if you find it fun then I think you should just go for it.’

Her mother Ms Thompson added: ‘It has always been Sienna’s choice and it will always be Sienna’s choice.

‘If she wants to walk away now she can walk away now.’

Holly Pirrie, from Pageant Girl Ltd, commented: ‘There is a lot more than meets the eye to the stereotype people have.’

Ms Pirrie also said she would like to invite people with negative comments to shows so they are able to see for themselves what really happens.

Sienna, who was 12 throughout much of the BBC’s filming, told The Voice in July that she dreams of furthering her modelling career.

‘I want to enter more pageants and take home more crowns! I hope one day to compete for Miss Universe.

‘I want to continue to model and hopefully do more things on TV. The advert I have done for Easy Braids is currently showing on CITV. I have done so much for a 13 year-old and hope that the future holds much more.’

The youngster is also branching out into the acting world with the landing of her first role as a ‘zombie’ extra in the upcoming series Case Files, which is slated for a 2018 release.
