She is also a quizzing demon having appeared on BBC 1’s Pointless (with partner Ed Byrne), ITV’s The Chase and breaking records on Celebrity Mastermind, where she fought off competition from Mark Watson and Dave Spikey to achieve the highest ever celebrity score.
Lucy also raised on £9000 for The Loss Foundation with her winning turn on Celebrity Storage Hunters. On Radio 4, she has been heard on Life - An Idiot's Guide, Heresy, The Personality Test, The News Quiz, Dilemma and The Unbelievable Truth.
