A BATLEY schoolgirl has been chosen out of thousands of children to appear on Channel 4 show the Secret Lives of Five Year Olds.

St Mary’s Catholic School pupil Kaci-Faith Scrutton, now aged six, was picked for the documentary after her mum Stacey Scrutton sent a video to casting directors last year.

She was one of nine girls who featured in the first episode last night. The series follows nine boys and girls while looking at the differences in their behaviour.

Mrs Scrutton said: “When I got the call to say Kaci had been picked I was in Tesco shopping and I just screamed at the top of my voice and cried with joy.

“We are all so proud of her achievement, her little Yorkshire accent is fabulous on the show.”
