A toddler is lighting up the small screen after being selected to star in a new baby milk advert.

Fourteen month old Jessen Calappa, from Collier Woods, was chosen to appear in a new Cow and Gate advert, known for their laughing baby clips, after his mum entered him into facebook search. 

His mum, Renata Calappa, said: "He is such a happy little boy and can often be found singing and dancing in public.

"He loves making other people smile and I’m so glad that he will now be bringing a grin to faces across the country."
