‘I have Binky’s back’

Hi guys!
Now that Made in Chelsea is back on air twitter has been going cray and I’m so happy that all the fans are loving the new series. We have been filming for a couple of months and it’s always exciting to see it on television. Sometimes we forget exactly what was said, so it can be fun to watch it back. We usually all get together on a Monday night as it’s a nice experience to share with the rest of the cast. This time Stevie came over and we watched it together. I enjoyed rinsing him about his poem but secretly I did think it was quite good. It’s hard to watch one of my best friends getting upset and what she is going through hits home with me and experiences from my past (before the show). It’s a tricky situation and although I like Alex, I have Binky’s back always.
This week, I made the announcement that I will be releasing a book – The Dating Game. I wanted to write the book as an offering to my 15 year old self. I have been through a lot and had many different experiences, which have led me to where I am today, and due to what I have gone through I like to think of myself as a strong individual. I felt that there was a lack of material available to young girls written from a really bold and honest perspective. I didn’t want to preach in the book, rather, offer a chance for people to hopefully relate to the situations that I have been in, and prevent them from making the same mistakes, or at the very least, understand that these mistakes are normal. I hope the book can provide people with a better understanding of why I am the way I am, but also I would like it to empower girls to have the confidence to make decisions based on what is going to make them happy. It is available for pre order on Amazon now! I truly am proud of it so I hope everyone likes it.
On Monday I shot the new campaign for Lipsy. It was an amazing shoot in Surrey at a beautiful polo stud. I grew up with horses, and my dad lives quite close to where we were shooting, so it was nice to spend the day there. The weather was amazing and it was fun shooting outside. We were shooting the VIP collection which will be available in June! There were some amazing behind the scenes images – have a look on my instagram (imLucyWatson) and let me know what you think.
I am obsessed with Manuka honey. I have unfortunately been getting really run down and unwell recently, and I find that the honey makes me feel so much better. It’s also great for a sore throat. My mum preached to me about it for years and for some reason when someone really wants me to do something it makes me really not want to do it. So I never used it. I spent basically every other week with a cold/flu so was desperate for an antidote. Turns out mum was right! I have also discovered the dr.organic Manuka Honey foot scrub – it’s amazing!
I am looking forward to seeing the film The Other Woman. Unfortunately I couldn’t go to the premiere as I had filming commitments, but I can’t wait to see it in the cinema! Girls ganging up on a douchey guy… Sounds like my kinda film.
I get a couple of days off this week for the Easter break and I’m really looking forward to spending a couple of days at home with my family and Digby. I hardly ever get days off back to back, so it’s a great chance to recooperate! And my mum misses me. I hope everyone has a great Easter, enjoy the eggs, I know I will.

  1. Hi there Lucy, my names Kate and i’m from Reading. This sounds pretty lame and i have never done this but you are genuinely such an idol to me.
    After all that you have been through, you continue to be yourself.
    It is so refreshing to read and watch such a strong, honest and down to earth person on TV (haha, with a cracking sense of humor aswel).
    I CANNOT WAIT to read your book. There is such a LACK of modern day advice for 18 year old girls like myself.
    Thank you for continuing to be such an inspiration to me. :)
