However the 33-year-old mother-of-four appears to lose interest halfway through and only manages to apply the mahogany coloured liquid to six-year-old Alana's stomach.
After the DIY self-tanning session comes to an abrupt end the precocious pageant star stands facing the cameras demonstrating a true case of fake tan gone bad.

well,' she told them.
They gave her a push and she's off,
quickly picking up speed. Screaming with delight, her double chins
pushed back by the force of the movement, June careers out of control.
