ALL the votes have been counted – and the winners have been chosen.
Today the Mercury can announce the names of its Little Stars champions – and all three are little girls who just looked so pretty in their pink outfits.
The overall winner, the tot who received the most votes of any of the entrants, was Saffie Hume. Her angelic little face won the hearts of readers, who then cast their votes by text or by post.
Saffie was successful in the 0-18 months old category.
The winner of the category for boys and girls between the ages of 18 months and three years was Phoebe Pennells.
And Chloe Finch was the winner of the category for boys and girls aged over three.
All three winners will receive some great prizes, courtesy of Starlight Studios, which took all the photographs, Sacrewell Farm and Country Centre and Mini Monsters soft play in Oakham.
Mercury editor Eileen Green said: “I’d like to thank everyone who entered the competition and all those who voted. I am sure readers will agree that these three little girls are all worthy winners.”
