‘Help!’ Rochelle Humes asks for advice when the family pet dies


The Saturdays singer Rochelle Humes took to Twitter with an emergency yesterday asking her followers for help.

“Parents – help!!”

Rochelle was looking for advice after her three-year-old daughter’s pet fish died overnight. She went on to ask her fans for their thoughts on the best course of action.

“Alaia’s goldfish has just passed. Do I tell her in the morning the truth (in a nice way) or is the fish on holiday?”

Quick to offer their words of wisdom, Rochelle needed help in deciding when a child is too young to learn about death.

“She’s only three, confused when is too young?!”

But it seems like honesty was the best policy for most as Rochelle retweeted many messages advising to tell her little girl the truth.

Rochelle later revealed that she and husband Martin decided to tell Alaia what had happened.

“We’ve gone for honesty. Thanks guys.

“Sometimes it’s hard to know the right thing to do when you just want to protest your little one.”
