Lily Allen has hired a 12-year-old DJ for her wedding
The `Smile` hitmaker has enlisted the services of Ted Lavender - who calls himself Ted at the Controls - to provide the entertainment at her reception following her nuptials to fiance Sam Cooper on 11.06.11 in Gloucestershire, South West England, after hearing his demo tape - and he cannot wait to play at the event.
He told The Sun newspaper: "I do a lot of practising in my bedroom and I don`t get nervous, except at the beginning.
"But mostly it`s just really exciting when the crowd gets going. Lily`s really nice and I`m looking forward to really rocking her party."
Ted`s dad Andy revealed Lily is keen for Ted to mix reggae and ska tunes for her 150 guests to dance to.
He said: "My eldest daughter Sarah is Lily`s half-sister and we`re all going to the wedding. Lily wanted Ted to play.
"I`ve got quite a large vinyl collection and Ted really enjoys playing my records.
"He saved up to buy his own decks and spends every hour he can on them."
But Ted - who is also set to play in the Hipshaker tent at the Isle of Wight Festival this weekend - is not planning to be a full-time DJ.
He added: "I want to be an antiques dealer and I`ll probably do DJing at the weekends."
Lily and Sam are set to celebrate their wedding with a honeymoon at Glastonbury Festival in a luxury ё1,000 tepee.
