PART 2: WANNABE JORDAN- STACEY THOMAS AND HER MUM HAYLEY MATTHEWS

At 11 years old, Stacey Thomas had already decided what she wanted to do with her life. And her decision didn’t come as much of a shock to her mum. Stacey had decided that she wanted to become a model – or more specifically – a glamour model. Stacey, now 17, plans to emulate her mum Hayley’s hero, Katie Price and become a glamour model when she turns 18. She’s also considering a boob job. Stacey’s here to tell us why - and how her mum has been a huge support to her, when others have turned their back. But is it too much too young?
