Imogen wows judges to be crowned bonny baby

Little cutie: Imogen Allen with mum Toni Day

Five-month old Imogen Mae Allen won over judges who voted unanimously to give her the crown at the final this week.


In a Chronicle first, where there were 11 babies in the final thanks to a tied vote, the tiny tot of South Street, Darfield, beat off competition from ten other babies.


Runner up was Rylan Jack Barber of Victoria Street, Darfield, and third place went to Joshua James Horton of Netherfield, Elsecar.


Speaking to the Chronicle, Isobel's mum, Toni Day, 21, said she was thrilled her little-un had been crowned champion.


"When it came to the final photos she couldn't hold her head up so I didn't think we'd get her smiling," she said.
