Last Monday, 15-year-old Paige Doherty was found dead by the roadside in Clydebank, Glasgow, after being reported missing for 48 hours, Metro reports. A 31-year-old man has since appeared in court charged with her murder.
The moving #PoutForPaige campaign was launched on social media to honour Doherty’s memory and rally behind her family during this sad time, and friends, family and celebrities have paid tribute to the teen who loved posing with a pout.
Among the famous faces who paid tribute to Doherty were some of the cast of Geordie Shore, with pouting posts from Charlotte Crosby, Gaz Beadle, Jay Gardner and Holly Hagan.
