If you thought toddlers strutting around with fake cigarettes and little girls dressed as prostitutes was pushing it, prepare to be gobsmacked by the latest episode of Toddlers and Tiaras.

The show - which follows mini beauty queens on the pageant circuit in America - reached new lows this week when it showed two-year-old Bella being spray-tanned by her mum.

And that's not all.

The little girl's mum Lana proudly admitted to the cameras that she has been tanning Bella regularly since she was SIX MONTHS OLD.

The 'pageant mom' confidently told the camera crew: "I've been spray-tanning Bella myself for about a year and a half."




She goes on to say her toddler daughter 'loves it', just as Bella cries out for her mum to stop.

Mum's reply? "You're going to be pretty!"

Toddlers and Tiaras is shown on Wednesday nights, at 9pm on channel TLC.

Pretty gruesome stuff.
