Career

Lucy Watson began her broadcasting career as a runner for ‘Stars in Your Eyes’. She later became a researcher for ITV shows like “You’ve Been Framed!” and ’60 Minute Makeover’. To further her career as a reporter, she returned to university to earn a journalism degree and began covering top stories for BBC Radio Merseyside and then Real Radio in Manchester. She did radio broadcasts for six months before joining ITV Granada in Manchester as a television reporter.

However, she gained fame after launching her acting career in 2012 with a role lead on the E4 reality television series. ‘Made in Chelsea’.

Lucy Watson, who grew up surrounded by animals on a farm in Surrey, learned to love animals from an early age. As soon as she was old enough to realize that the meat she had been eating came from animals that were once alive, she decided to become a vegetarian. According to her, it is wrong to differentiate between farm animals like sheep, cows, ducks, and chickens and pets like cats and dogs, since they are all living creatures with feelings that deserve to live. She later opened a vegan restaurant with her sister Tiffany’s. However, she sparked controversy by stating in her 2017 vegan cookbook that most people should become vegetarians for ethical reasons. Ruby Tandoh, food writer and former ‘Great British Bake Off’ finalist, criticized his comments by stating that he cannot “dictate people’s lives from a Sloane throne”. To build his argument, he listed a number of valid reasons such as “disordered eating, lack of access to vegan foods, disability, medical problems, poverty, and the myriad social and cultural reasons” that may determine the way certain people eat. .

This prompted a response from Watson, who in turn claimed that Ruby took her statement personally because her own cookbook promoted meat and dairy through various recipes.Lucy Watson was born on February 20, 1991 in Manchester, England, the daughter of Clive Watson, owner of a multi-million dollar pub and restaurant chain, and his wife Fiona Lygo. She has a younger sister named Tiffany, born in November 1993.

Shortly after joining the cast of ‘Made In Chelsea’, Lucy Watson became caught up in a love triangle with Spencer Matthews and Louise Thompson. In 2013, during the show’s fifth season, she began a relationship with Spencer. However, she ended the relationship two months later after learning that he had been unfaithful while on vacation. She reportedly dated another co-star, Oliver Proudlock, for a couple of months in 2014.
