Storm Trivett, seven, has already shot his first big campaign for Dreams beds and casting calls are now starting to flood in from brands planning their new season marketing drives.

The Buxton Juniors pupil is currently letting single mum Lisa manage his career around her day job as a window cleaner.

She said: "I think he was born to do it. He's a natural showman with a really unique look and full of enthusiasm.

Storm Trivett was snapped up by modelling agency PHA.

“He makes an impact and has a name that people remember. I took him to the PHA Agency in Manchester in 2019 and they signed him on the spot.”

The role with Dreams saw Storm’s face on posters across 200 stores nationwide, as well as the company’s online shop.

It was a proud day when Lisa, 49, took Storm on his first trip to London last year to see the posters for himself at the company’s flagship outlets.

She said: “It all happened really quickly. He didn’t even have to go through a casting process.

Storm is the star of a national advertising campaign for bed retailer Dreams.

“We went round London on an open top bus and it was a really overwhelming moment.”

Storm’s sister, Star, 13, was also previously signed up by a modelling agency before ultimately deciding it was not for her.

Lisa said: “If Storm decided he didn’t want to do it, it wouldn’t happen, but he really enjoys being on set and likes to please people.

“He has this beautiful long hair that makes people think he could be a girl, but he likes to feel he is representing how boys can be different.”

Storm is also already making waves on Instagram.

Storm’s progress has been slowed by the pandemic, with brands having to work around health and safety limitations but there should be an updated Dreams poster campaign coming after lockdown and other jobs are in the pipeline.

Lisa said: “He’s got acting skills too and he’s really driven to have a big house one day and all the rest.

“For now, he’s got a little box for his modelling money. It’s not hard to keep his feet on the ground.”
