A SCHOOLGIRL is set for her debut on the small screen after landing a role on a new children’s TV show.

Bolton school pupil Kylá Chenda-Joseph is excited to star on an episode of arts and crafts show Makeaway Takeaway, which will be broadcast this week.

The show sees host and comedian Bec Hill use her top tips and inspirational art ideas to fulfil the wishes of young customers.

Kylá will feature on episode eight of Makeaway Takeaway entitled The Box, which airs next Wednesday after school at 5.30pm on CITV.

The eight-year-old was not cast by agents for this role, but applied directly to ITV - passing through several audition stages with no coaching during the coronavirus pandemic.

Kylá’s proud mum Mara said: “The show is an inspirational piece about making it through the pandemic and finding and creative opportunity for yourself, even when the world has stopped as it did during the pandemic, when Kylá had her first audition with the show producers.

“At the time Kylá showed her interest in auditioning for Makeaway TakeAway she relied mainly on her effervescent sparkly personality and her love of all things creative and artistic.

“I think she also benefitted from her training at The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.

“Kylá’s confidence in her performance and creativity was absolutely beautiful to see and we are so proud of her.

"Kylá’s school and Bolton Council also authorised her licence for this job.

“It was remarkable to see the incredible support Kylá received from school also.”

The budding youngster is now represented by two child casting agents, Bondi Talent and Paris Kids Talent Agency.

Kylá said: “I am so excited to watch the episode after all my hard work. I really hope everyone enjoys the show.”

Earlier this year Kyla also met with Malawi's First Lady, Madam Monica Chakwera.
