Going by the name Princess Sophie Pink on YouTube, the little girl calmly chatted to Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford while handling her pets including a Chilean tarantula called Ruby.

She told the hosts she started for a pet spider to her mom Rachel after seeing one at a museum. She has now got so many pets that she struggles to keep up with their names.

She explained: "Some have names, for the tarantulas we have to know what gender they are and have to wait for them to moult.

"I've kind of named them but there's too many."

When asked if she'd ever been bitten by any of her pet snakes, Hollie said: "Georgie has once bitten me... Lizzie has bitten me two times in a row.

"But you're more in shock than it hurts."

While mom Rachel is not a big fan of her daughter's pets, telling Ruth and Eamonn: "It's turned a lot into fascination now, but I'm still not 100 percent comfortable with them.

"I've just seen how she is with them, she loves them."

Hollie who is originally from Cheshire had set up her Youtube account to show people that snakes and spiders are not scary.

She told the show: "My mission on YouTube is to spread that spiders and invertebrates are cute. But my proper mission is to meet David Attenborough."

However, Eamonn thought little Hollie could do one better than meet him, quipping: "Hollie, you are fascinating, we look forward to when you're the next David Attenborough, and I hope you play this clip when you're famous!"

Viewers were bowled over by Hollie and her pets, with one posting: 'I reckon little eight-year-old Hollie's the next Steve Irwin!"

"Keep going Hollie I'm sure you will meet David Attenborough soon."
