David Walliams among stars to perform Archway schoolgirl’s story
An eight-year-old writer watched celebrities perform her work after winning a short story competition.
Eloise Shaw Miller’s tale about a magical TV remote gained her a bronze medal in the BBC Radio 2 contest which attracted more than 74,000 entries.
Children aged up to 13 were invited to compose original fiction of 500 words.
At the Hay Literary Festival, Eloise, from Whitehall Park, Archway, witnessed pop singer Will Young and other stars read the winning stories and met presenters Alex Jones and David Walliams, as well as Outnumbered star Daniel Roche.
She said: “I’m actually a bit lost for words because it was such a great experience.”
