Six year old Sophi Hollins from Southampton, ,4ft,10ins the average height of a 12-year-old twice her age.

She was diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome, a rare condition causes expansion of the soft connective tissues in the body, which results in long limbs and can cause other health problems.

At the age of two Sophi underwent corrective eye surgery and she wears special glasses.

She takes medicine to prevent the expansion of soft tissues arround her heart .

Her mother Lorraine, 38, says her baby teeth have fallen out so she looks quite strange being so tall.

She wears an adult size three shoe, jeans for 11-year-olds .

'Some people don’t realise she’s so young and they treat her like an older child, which can be scary for her.

Some time I have to show her birth certificate as a prove of her age.
