Angel In School Nativity Gives Audience Middle Finger For 20 Minutes

Ella Legge

This 'angelic' cheeky little girl spent her first nativity play flipping her two middle fingers at the audience - in a bid to show her mum her finger that was hurting her.

Carla Bovingdon is claiming her little daughter Ella Legge spent at least 20 minutes of the half-hour performance waving her middle finger at her mum last week.

Hilarious photos are showing the five-year-old dressed as an angel standing in the middle of the school nativity play, looking downcast and clutching her arm as she flips her finger at the audience.

In another photo, little Ella puts up her other middle finger to compare her hands - hilariously unaware she was mimicking Eminem's iconic but very controversial pose.

Carla, 33, claims the little girl had a small hangnail on her finger but had been so concerned she had been desperate to show her mum what was wrong during her school nativity.

The mum-of-three then joked that her daughter was 'completely oblivious' to her mistake and, despite mouthing at her to put her finger down, was forced to leave her to just get on with it.

Carla, who lives near Maldon, Essex, said: "It was so funny because she didn't realise what she was doing.

"She likes to let me know if she's at all injured, so she was basically trying to show me what she had done from across the room. It was the tiniest little hangnail as well.

"Then she put both her fingers up because she was trying to compare to see if both fingers were hurt.

"It was pretty much for the majority of it she was there with her middle finger up. Because I didn't run over there she kept holding it up as if she was saying, 'mum, look!'.

"A couple of the teaching assistants had a bit of a giggle. I think where she was standing, and the fact that you don't watch one child the whole time, I don't think everyone noticed.

"A few of the older children whispered, 'Ella's got her finger up'. Everyone seemed to know what she was doing, but yeah there were a few laughs here and there.

"I was thinking, 'oh god, Ella please stop.' Because she was doing it so innocently I think most people were thinking, 'oh bless her'.

"That's what made it so funny as well, because she was completely oblivious.

"She's quite endearing normally and is really cute. She likes pretty dresses. Being an angel was perfect for her."

Carla shared the photos online and claims Ella was amazed when more than 7,000 people liked or commented on her mum's post.

However she claims she had to warn her daughter not to repeat her middle finger-flashing antics in a second performance of the nativity as it 'wouldn't be funny this time'.

Carla, who works as a network marketer, said: "I posted the photos online and she had lots of laughing reactions and funny comments.

"She obviously doesn't have social media but I was showing her how many people thought it was funny.

"She wanted to say thank you to everyone for liking her picture, but then she said, 'I don't know what's funny though'. She doesn't get what the joke is.

"She just thinks she looks cute, but doesn't know why we're all laughing which is quite funny. When she's older I will get [the photos] out again to show her.

"It had to be my child. I had to keep mouthing 'put your finger down' discreetly, but then I just accepted that she was going to be standing there with her finger up.

"The performance was about half-an-hour long, and I would say 70 percent of it she had her middle finger up.

"Now after people have had a laugh I can see the funny side of it.

"When she did the performance again, I had to say, 'don't do it again. It was funny when you didn't realise, but now it won't be funny so don't do it again'.

"The second performance was much better. There was a little bit of clowning around as per usual for her, but it was fine."
