DECKED out in sparkly dresses, full faces of make-up and towering heels, budding beauty queens battled it out to be named Queen.
Only these weren't your average pageant entrants – some of this lot were barely out of nappies when they strutted their stuff on camera for TLC's Toddlers and Tiaras.
The controversial programme followed hopefuls as young as two and their frequently overbearing mums, capturing their fierce rivalries and endless tantrums.
This week it emerged one of its stars, Kailia Posey, sadly took her own life at the age of 16.
Kailia's mum shared the tragic news saying: "I don't have words or any thoughts. A beautiful baby girl is gone. Please give us privacy as we mourn the loss Kailia. My baby forever."
The US show, which first aired in 2009, pulled in two million viewers an episode at its peak, before it was cancelled in 2016.
It often sparked outrage over the treatment of the girls and the inappropriate behaviour of their parents.
After Toddlers and Tiaras, several of its stars continued to make headlines, with some going on to land spin-off shows.
Mama June and Honey Boo Boo were its breakout stars – but their lives have been anything but smooth since.
Here we take a look at what happened to the cast.
