Kirsty Nicholson, from Stockton, has run away to join The Circus of Horrors.

She initially applied to be a singer with the circus, not realising that that would also mean she has to cram herself into a two foot tall bottle.

Kirsty admits there was a temptation to get into a flap, when she heard the news.

She said: "I should have known better. I saw the show when I was seven-years-old, so I should have guessed that just singing was not an option!"

"I had to overcome claustrophobia by locking myself in a dustbin until I got used to it!"

Coming home

She is now a part of The Circus of Horrors and is making her debut in Blackpool, and will return home to Teesside for a show in Middlesbrough on Thursday 24 February.
