She added she set up the business out of 'boredom', but it 'thrilled' the reception had been so positive.

Ella said: "I set up my business as a way to keep me busy during lockdown and socialising my customers has been really nice.

"The response from everyone has been really positive, and I've just been working hard to keep up with the orders that keep coming in."

Ella hopes to have a career in business when she finishes school.

She said: "Once I have finished school I would like to be in charge of a successful business and hopefully then open a shop to sell all of my products."

Ella said she has been coping fine during lockdown with her sister and brother, Violet and Aurum, all of them helping to support their parents who are both NHS Keyworkers.
