A Northwood eight-year-old has fulfilled what many others dream of and interviewed author and TV personality David Walliams last month.

Liberty, who is described as a bubbly character by her parents, got the chance to interview Mr Walliams through a competition held by the Radio Times.

Liberty was the second youngest out of the group of 12 who were chosen after submitting their number one question that they would ask The Britain’s Got Talent judge.

Nina Elliot accompanied her daughter to the Radio Times headquarters in London and described it as “A wonderful day with a fantastic host”.

She said: “It was such a great day. David was amazing, he was so personalised with the children and made every child feel special.

“He was very funny. Liberty loved it, she was quite struck by how tall he was but she will remember it forever.”

Richard, Liberty’s dad said he was incredibly proud of his daughter who was left smiling ear to ear.

He said: “I have seen a few videos of her, I am so proud. She was very confident and bubbly, you could see just how much she enjoyed herself. She was smiling ear to ear.”

Richard was quite surprised by her question to Mr Walliams which was, ‘What is your favourite interview question and can you answer it?’

In which he replied, “Who is the most untalented person we have had on BGT and my answer would be Simon Cowell, I mean what does he do?” which one child replied, “He just sits there” which got everyone laughing.

The day was enjoyed by all said Nina, who says they were all treated like VIP’s as food and drinks were provided and everyone left with a signed version of his new book Fing.

She added: “It was a great day out and made everyone, including the parents welcome. I would like to thank him and the Radio Times for an unforgettable day.”
