Laura Styles

A girl from Orpington is to star in a new TV show after becoming a “real-life Mary Poppins” at a prestigious childcare college.

Laura Styles, 20, completed this year a £13,000-a-year course at Norland College, Bath – a 120-year-old institution where tight buns and white gloves remain.

Miss Styles, who before attending studied at Orpington College, is one of 43 others who were followed by ITV cameras for six months while undergoing training.

Now off to begin her career with a family in Kensington, the documentary, titled ‘Britain’s Poshest Nanny’, will give the public an insight into what is required.

Miss Styles told News Shopper: “I’m so excited, I can’t wait. I’ve always wanted to work with children and my nan said, ‘if you’re going to be a nanny, you need to be the best’.

“The training is quite tough, it’s so traditional. We have to learn about cooking, cleaning, absolutely everything – we even had self-defence training so we can protect the children.”

Miss Styles is one of the main girls featured in the show and said at first the cameras were a little daunting, but got used to them eventually.
