Emotional Rescue

Published on August 19th 2005.


Ladies, got a problem with your boyfriend? (Haven’t we all?) Does he spend all his time down the pub with Bazza, Gazza and Dazza (why grown men still insist on calling each other by the nicknames they had when they were fourteen escapes me)? Are you slightly suspicious of his willingness to help your rather attractive neighbour put up her new Ikea shelving unit when you can’t even get him to look at that dodgy drawer handle in the kitchen? Or, is the problem no matter how many Saturday nights you spend down at Deansgate Locks in your cutest pulling outfit you don’t seem to get any male attention, apart from that dodgy, bald guy, sweating in the lovely ‘pleather’ jacket who’s old enough to be your Dad?

Well, Flic Everett and Key 103 might just have your relationship problems solved, although they’re not promising to teach your bloke where the hoover’s kept or to pick his bloody socks up!

Flic, Manchester’s younger, trendier, version of Claire Raynor, has just started her new show, “Emotional Rescue” on a Sunday night 9 – 10pm on Key 103. A girl’s only zone, Flic takes over the airwaves and invites all Manchester’s girls to ring in with their relationship and sex problems. As Company Magazine’s resident sex-pert Flic is officially unshockable so don’t worry about embarrassing her with your bedroom dilemmas – she’s heard it all before!

And, after opening her own vintage boutique, Rags to Bitches, on Tib Street in the Northern Quarter she’s been hearing even more girls moaning about their men whilst they shop! Not only has she been helping her customers put the perfect vintage outfit together, she’s also been helping them pull themselves together! In fact, if you’re a little shy about having the whole of Manchester knowing literally the ins and outs of your relationship on the radio, just pop into the shop and Flic will give you your own personal tarot reading. Whilst she can’t guarantee you’ll leave with your perfect man wrapped up neatly in a Rags to Bitches carrier bag complete with bow, I predict you’ll probably be leaving with a fabulous new skirt that will make you forget your man problems for oooo at least an afternoon!

“Emotional Rescue” started last Sunday and so far Flic has solved problems for a lady who thought her boyfriend was cheating on her (“First things first, you need to find out if he is….”) and a girl who was wondering if her gay best-friend would ever fancy her (“Erm….no.”). Flic’s straight-talking, frank advice isn’t the only point of view available on the show. Her husband Simon is going to a regular guest, offering a male opinion, but don’t let this put you off. Simon isn’t your average “What’s up, time of the month?” kind of guy. Flic’s certainly got him well trained. She describes him as a gay-straight man; a new strain of heterosexual male spawned as a result of overexposure to fashion and women’s magazines. She even trusts him to pick some of the clothes for Rags to Bitches so he can’t be all bad!

As well as Simon each week Flic will have an “Amateur Agony Aunt” on the show. Last week it was her gay best friend, this week it might be a hairdresser or a taxi driver, in fact, anyone who is always listening to other people’s problems and giving away free advice! Hell, it might even be me considering the number of emergency email dilemmas I’ve had to solve for my mate Abi this week!

If you know anyone who would be perfect for Flic’s “Amateur Agony Aunt” or fancy having a go at it yourself just send her an email to me on pam@2mmedia.com and I'll pass them on to Flic. And, if you have a relationship or sex puzzle don’t be afraid to give her a call on a Sunday night between 9 – 10pm on 0161 288 0103 or email her at the above address! Go on, it’s got to be better than sitting at home and singing “I Will Survive” into your hairbrush!
