The youngster was following instructions from the creepy character, which has started popping up in YouTube videos for children, including Peppa Pig and Fortnite .

Momo, a scary looking female figure with bird like feet, was used as a viral meme by teens on WhatsApp.

Through the picture, kids were encouraged to harm themselves and in some cases even take their own lives.

They are also sent a number of disturbing and graphic images.

If kids do not perform tasks set by the Momo creature, they are then cursed through the popular messaging app, the warped trend claims.

Toddler Trims, a hair salon in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, has now shared images of the young girl who is among those to have fallen victim to the challenge, reports Manchester Evening News.

The post says: “So I’ve just had a beautiful little girl in affected by this sick MOMO challenge!! If you are unaware this sick human/mutant is hacking into peppa pig, fortnight, minecraft etc..

“Any & most children’s YouTube videos, telling them to cut there hair off, hold Knives up to there throat, set themselves on fire & that it will suck all the blood from there body … this little girl is off to the doctors after her new haircut.

“She is five years old & still keeps talking about momo, her mother is absolutely devastated!!

“Thankfully we have managed to give her a cute pixie cut which she loves but still won’t promise me she won’t listen to MOMO again. I couldn’t help but feel this monster has brainwashed her.”

It adds: “Her mother is pretty traumatised & turning the internet off for now. She has asked me to make everyone aware of this sick sick challenge & what it is doing to our babys!!!

“Please search #momochallenge on fb/google & keep your babies off the net… this could’ve been a lot worse!”

The post has been shared almost 60k times in less than 24 hours as fears over the impact such videos are having over children grow.

Fears around the game have increased after reports revealed it is hacking into children’s programmes on YouTube Kids.

Schools have written to parents to tell them that Momo is popping up in seemingly innocent Peppa Pig episodes, as well as Fortnite, Minecraft and videos showing kids opening Kinder Eggs and other treats.

Parents think their child is safe watching a normal episode of their favourite programme – but a ‘Momo’ clip has been spliced into the YouTube clip.

The ‘Momo’ character – a scary doll’s face – interrupts the show and threatens the viewer into contacting a number on WhatsApp.

Some parents say their children have been told they will be “killed in their sleep” if they do not contact ‘Momo’.

Once the child has connected, the shadowy people behind the ‘Momo’ account can send what they like to the child on WhatsApp.

In some cases the account may threaten to access or release personal photos or information or warn of a “curse” from “Momo”.

Police in Leicestershire are believed to be the first Brit force to address the horrific Momo Challenge today after Daily Star Online revealed yesterday that yet another terrified parent had issued a chilling warning over the “suicide game” after she claimed her son was told to stick a knife in his neck.

The latest “victim” of the game comes after one Brit mum shared her hack at how to reverse the terrible effects of the challenge and the sick challenge was found in Manchester earlier this week.
