“Why is everyone getting up in my grill?” Classic Lucy Watson. The Ex Made in Chelsea cast member uttered this timeless phrase as her fellow Chelsea dwellers quizzed her over the latest love triangle. Not one to mince her words Lucy soon became one of the show’s most popular members, and most successful. Her stint on E4’s hit show catapulted the model, ambassador, and cookbook author, to bigger and better things.
It’s fair to say Lucy’s turn on the reality show was a tumultuous one. From the highs of meeting boyfriend James Dunmore to the lows of falling out with best friend Stephanie Pratt, Lucy experienced it all. More candid than her cast members she soon became a social media favourite, with fans dubbing her ‘the voice of reason.’ How can we not mention her sidekick? Digby Watson, Lucy’s loveable little dog has 45.3k followers on Instagram and is never far from his owner’s side.
The German Spitz Klein is almost as feisty as Lucy, making his feelings clear about some of her exes! After a series of failed relationships with Jamie Laing and Spencer Matthews, Lucy met the brooding James Dunmore. The rest, as they say, is history. Unlike a lot of her fellow cast mates, her relationship with James wasn’t marred by cheating scandals and doubts.
A breath of fresh air, the couple decided to leave the show a few years later, as in love as ever. Fast-forward a few years and Watson and Dunmore are still loved up. Their respective Instagram accounts are full of sun-kissed selfies in bikinis and board shorts. The Maldives is a favourite holiday spot of theirs. Expect to see candlelit dinners and enviable island capers.
Since exiting the show Lucy has gone on to prove she’s not just a posh, pretty face. In fact, she’s an astute businesswoman who has grown her own brand and jewellery line. The busy TV personality has landed sponsors such as Lipsy and Pandora. One look at her social media and you realise just how important fitness is to Lucy. Sweating it out in the gym with friends and eating a healthy diet are cornerstones of her lifestyle, and helped her land such huge sponsors.
She’s also a fierce advocate for PETA. Her online store sells ‘this is what a vegan looks like’ tees and she doesn’t use products unless their cruelty-free. The stunner has also graced magazines like Grazia, HELLO, and Reveal. The Creature Collection, Lucy’s jewellery line, is a gorgeous homage to fashion and animals. The 24 piece collection includes a gold crab claw ring and frog foot earrings. Perfectly aligned with her beliefs, Lucy’s brand is an ethical and inspired one which aims to prevent animal cruelty. The gorgeous pieces are made from bronze and plated in silver or 24 carat gold.
When she’s not toning her torso in the gym, modelling for international magazines, or growing her business, you’ll find Lucy Watson in the kitchen! Lucy’s love of animals is no publicity stunt; she is completely vegan and has even been working on a cookbook to share her favourite recipes. A quick scroll through her Instagram feed and you’ll see the star enjoying delicious meat-free brunches at The Phene.
She’s also partial to the odd burger and pizza too, so breathe a sigh of relief, there’s something for everyone! That’s part of Lucy’s healthy eating mantra; eating right doesn’t have to be restrictive or boring. I mean just take a look at her badass bliss balls if you’re still a doubter.
