Seven-Year-Old Girl Is Hit Agony Aunt
Updated : Apr 4, 2009
A seven-year-old girl has become Britain's youngest agony aunt while working for her local radio station.
Elaina Smith was offered the post after she rang a phone-in on Mercia FM and told a woman caller who had just been dumped to go bowling with friends and drink a mug of milk. Her advice was such a hit that she has now been given a weekly slot on the station's breakfast show. Now she gives tips on everything from ending a stale relationship and how to get a man to dealing with lazy older brothers.
Elaina, from Coventry, said: "I really enjoy it. I say whatever comes into my head and people like what I say. I used to want to be a vet, but now I want to be on the radio." Her mum Karen Harris, 31, added: "Elaina's dad and I separated. She's always trying to set me up with people in town. I'm happy being single but if I do need advice I know who to ask."
When one listener wrote to Elaina asking how to get a man, she replied: "Shake your booty on the dancefloor and listen to High School The Musical." Another girl asked what she should do about her lazy older brother. Elaina answered: "Tell him to get a job and stop watching Loose Women on the telly." And when a woman asked how to get her man back, Elaina told her: "He's not worth the heartache. Life's too short to be upset with a boy."
