A controversial British beautician, who had admitted to injecting her eight-year-old daughter with Botox, has now boasted of her exploits in an American television interview.
Single mum Kerry Campbell, originally from Birmingham and now living in San Francisco, told Good Morning America that she gives her daughter Britney Botox to make her look her best at pageants.

"We were getting into the pageants. I knew she was complaining about her face, having wrinkles, and things like that. When I brought it up to Britney she was all for it. She had watched me do it before. So when we first did it she was fine with it," the Sun quoted her as saying in the show.
"When she goes to wash her hands, she'll look in the mirror and be like 'Mummy, I have a wrinkle'. It's a tough world in the pageant world I'm telling you. Kids are harsh and being confident is something she has to be with them," she added. Campbell also admitted waxing her daughter's legs for pageant success.
On the experience of the show, TV interviewer Lara Spencer said show it was hard to remain composed while interviewing Campbell.
"It was very difficult, as a mum, to have that conversation. And she was unapologetic. She wanted to get her side of the story out there. She said the pageant world is tough and this is the latest example of just how far parents will go," said Spencer.
