Reality star Katie Price has come under fire from trolls after posting a video of her daughter Bunny wearing make-up.
On Instagram, the former glamour model, 42, shared a clip of her youngest child, five, with lipstick and blusher on.
It shows Bunny – whose dad is Katie’s ex, Kieran Hayler – smiling for the camera before bouncing up and down in excitement.

With everything going on in this crazy world right now, I just wanted to come on today to wish everybody a Happy Mother’s Day. These are very strange times and I am so thankful to be spending the day with all 5 of my wonderful children. I know many people (including myself) weren’t able to see their mums today and my thoughts are with you all. Please stay safe everyone, follow the government’s advice, #stayhome and lets #Bekind to each other. Katie x
On the floor in front of her is a pile of various bits of make-up, including mascara and nail polish.
Katie explains in the video that she bought it all for Bunny.
In the comments, a number of social media users criticised the mum-of-five.
One said: “A little lipgloss and nail polish all little girls like. But why are you giving her all that mascara, foundation etc? She’s a child.”
Another wrote: “Let children enjoy being children. They’ve got a lifetime to cope with everything that goes with being an adult.”
A third asked, stunned: “Isn’t she 6!?”
“Are you joking?” demanded a fourth, adding: “Getting so much make-up for a little girl?”
A number of Katie’s fans defended her in the comments.
“Oh my goodness people, lighten up. Jesus,” one said. “Just a little girl playing dress up.”
Another wrote: “What’s with all the negative nellys on here? Little girls love make up! I highly doubt Katie lets her out with a full face on.”
Now, an insider close to the star has hit back at the comments. They explained that Bunny loves to copy her mum’s make-up tutorials. She also loves to put it on her siblings, including big brother Harvey.
Getting so much make-up for a little girl?
They told the Mirror: “Bunny delights in copying her mummy’s make-up tutorials. No one is safe – Bunny does every ones make-up including Harvey.
“Bunny loves bright colours – whether she is painting or drawing. She is a naturally very artistic little lady. A lipstick is a face paint tool, for whatever purpose Bunny feels fit on the face to highlight – nothing more – it comes off in the hour.
“Bunny may well bring out her own range one day – in some countries make-up on children defines their cultures – tribes, religion – organically learning through play.”
Speaking further, the insider said that parents should supervise kids if letting them play with make up – more to stop them scrawling all over soft furnishings.
