100 Year Old Iris is Australia's Latest Celebrity Love Guru!

100 year old Iris is Brisbane's newest celebrity after her star turn on radio station B105 this week.

Iris, a resident at Seasons Aged Care Waterford West, has been dubbed “Brisbane's love guru” after offering relationship advice to the younger generation during B105's morning show with Stav, Abby and Matt, inviting listeners to “ask her anything.”

Iris’s granddaughter was talking to the radio show when she mentioned her grandmother’s recent 100 year birthday, and her birthday present request: a stripper!

“I just fancied a nice, young man parading in front of me,” said Iris.

It was at that moment, the B105 morning crew knew they had found a superstar in Iris.

Her pearls of wisdom and relationship advice proved to be very valuable, with listeners agreeing to implement her recommendations.

Jacintha called to ask how she could convince her partner to do more housework and Iris simply replied, “Well, I don’t think you can.” She continued by saying, “If he loves you enough, he should realise you need help and he will help you… And if he doesn’t, then you won’t be very happy.”

When asked by listener Nikki where she could find potential suitors, Iris admitted things had changed since she was young.

Iris told the listener she spent her youthful nights at dance halls where she had the opportunity to meet “nice, young men”. She compared this with how young people today find love.

“I know that you can go on computers now, and find someone. I never had to do that,” Iris replied to the listener. Iris advised Nikki that she should go out dancing, and get to know some new people.

Given that she just celebrated her 100th birthday, Iris grew up during the war. She offered some insight in to what that was like for her, and how this affected her love life.

“When there is a war on, anything can happen. You don’t know if you’re going to be here the next day so you have to take any opportunity,” she laughed.

Iris shed light on another issue that listener, Ellie was struggling with; if it were inappropriate to contact a man she hadn’t heard from in a few days.

Iris said the relationship didn’t sound very promising, but if she really liked him, it would be a good idea to call and make some judgement from there.

The Seasons Aged Care Waterford West resident is thrilled to share her years of love and life experience with callers from across Brisbane, and beyond!

Iris has been invited to join the B105 morning crew on-air for a regular weekly segment so if you have any tentative relationship queries, be sure to make them heard.

In Iris’s words, “I’m ready for anything.”
