A CLITHEROE schoolgirl has become the envy of her friends after having a conversation with Radio 2’s presenter Chris Evans.

Anna Worsley, who is a pupil at Pendle Primary School, came under the national spotlight when she was interviewed by the famous broadcaster on his breakfast show during the “Kids – what are you doing for the first time today?” feature.

Anna revealed that she was off to see badgers at a secret location that evening after winning a school competition to produce a factfile about badgers. The eight-year-old was one of 10 winners who enjoyed an evening’s badger watch with local wildlife officer, Phil Dykes, over two nights and teacher Mr Richard Waterhouse.

When Anna spoke to Chris Evans again the following morning, she told him what she had seen and gave herself a mark of ten million out of ten!

Anna’s proud parents, Susan and Adrian Worsley said: “We were incredibly proud of Anna for being on national radio. She is normally quite a shy person and although she was visibly nervous she sounded confident when speaking to Chris Evans. She wasn’t even phased by his unpredictable badger questions!”
