Girl, 4, defies doctors who told her she may never walk by strolling on major modelling shoot

FOUR-year-old Daisy Briggs strolls on her first major modelling shoot — proving doctors wrong after they said she may never be able to walk.

Little Daisy has not let spina bifida, hydrocephalus, hip dysplasia and club foot stop her achieving great things.

She managed to rack up walking 25 metres a day during lockdown last year, raising £25,000 for the NHS.

Her hard work was recognised by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who gave her a Points of Light award.

And she has now been picked to model River Island’s kidswear range, and will appear on the store’s website and social media.

It is her first big job, having been signed by Zebedee Management when she was just 18 months old.

Mum Rea, 34, of Sutton, South London, said: “We’re so proud of Daisy and it’s topped off an amazing year of achievements for her. She really enjoyed having a fuss made of her and being photographed.”

River Island’s Jo Sawkins said: “Our teams absolutely loved working with Daisy.

“Her inspirational and positive personality helped bring our campaign to life and she was great fun on set.

“What an incredible young girl she is and we have thoroughly enjoyed supporting her career this far.

“We look forward to hopefully working again with her in the future.”
