TINY Sam Wardle has gone from claiming unemployment benefit to earning up to £100 a 'gig' since responding to an appeal in the Chronicle for a dwarf strippagram.

Sam, just 4ft 2ins tall, is in huge demand all over the country and has performed as both a strippagram and kissagram in London,Salisbury, Nottingham, Derby, Stockport, Blackpool, Doncaster, Rotherham, and of course, Barnsley.


She spotted a story in the Chronicle in January when Hayley Batty, who runs agency Hayley B Entertainments, was appealing for a dwarf due to 'huge demand'.

Sam, 38, was an unemployed former cleaner and decided to give it a go.


She said: "It's got me working, and I've never looked back. I've had so many knock-backs in my life, I decided you've just got to go for it sometimes."
