Honey Hodgson, nine weeks, and Eliza Easton-Woodruff, six weeks, will share the role of baby Jesus in the Follow The Star community event.

The show will run from 5pm to 6.30pm during tonight’s late-night shopping at Sidmouth Prayer Room in Holmdale.

Honey’s mum Gemma said she was ‘privileged’ to have been asked to take part.

Ann Worthington, co-organiser of the event, said: “It’s an alternative to all the glitz and glamour. We are always grateful for our mothers offering their babies to play the baby Jesus.”
