Claire Rayner
1949

Novelist, broadcaster, and health advice columnist Claire Rayner’s published responses to letters from real women seeking advice on motherhood in magazines and on television earned her renown as perhaps the nation’s best-loved agony aunt. Testament to her cultural impact, she has been immortalised in cockney rhyming slang – think of CLSG next time you put on your Claire Rayners (trainers)!
