HARRY POTTER star Daniel Radcliffe has been issued advice on how to cope with his rising star status - by singer Charlotte Church's mother.

The 15-year-old actor - whose movie HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN opened to rave reviews on Monday (31MAY04) - has experienced a sudden surge in popularity and has overtaken Church as the second richest teenager in Britain.

And Charlotte's mum MARIA feels she's in an ideal position to steer Daniel in the right direction.

She says, "The best tips I can offer Daniel are to have respect for money and keep his feet on the ground."

Maria has also urged Radcliffe to keep his girlfriends out of the public spotlight following her daughter's turbulent romance with ex-boyfriend STEVEN JOHNSON, which was relentlessly documented in British newspapers.
