Early life and career beginnings
Growing up, Lucy developed an interest in photography, which would become one of her greatest passions.

She developed her interest in photography while in school, and credits the hobby as one of her most motivating activities.

She possessed a very voluptuous figure, with a shapely appeal further accentuated by her large breast size. Many compared her to the cartoon sex symbol Jessica Rabbit, as she possessed a similar figure. Her first professional modeling project was for Toni & Guy salons, where she worked as a hair model. She initially had naturally brown hair, but later dyed it her signature red.
Rise to fame
After five years of working on local projects and completing her education, in 2012 she took part in the publication’s Idol competition “The sun”. The tabloid newspaper is one of the largest circulating dailies in the UK, although overtaken by “Metro” in 2018.
She submitted her photos and was eventually declared the winner of the contest, landing her on page three of the tabloid, which is often reserved for models, celebrities and the like. Numerous publications started heading her way, when she showed off a curvaceous figure, wearing a size 42 dress while still wearing a “plus size” bra.
After her win, she was featured in “FHM” men’s magazine, which is published all over the world and known for its feature of several high-profile models, and here labeled as the harbinger of a new trend for women. Aside from the comparisons to Jessica Rabbit, she was also compared to actress Christina Hendricks, who was also known for her attractive figure and facial features during her childhood, most of which she wore even into middle age.
Because of the comparisons to Hendricks, “The Sun” had her take to the streets of London dressed as Joan Holloway, Hendricks’ character in “Mad Men”, which garnered a lot of positive response and helped redefine what size models could be .
As she gained more magazine articles, Lucy became an advocate for healthy body image, using her fame to encourage young women and girls who struggle with how their bodies look. Aside from “FHM”, she was featured in magazines like “Front” and “Loaded”, both known as men’s online magazines at the time.
She also appeared as a model in “Maxim”, and was also featured in “Zoo”, a few years before the magazine’s closure.
Apart from her work in these publications, she has been featured on various erotic websites such as Xtreme Playpen, CurvedFX, Onlytease, and Pinup Wow. She also modeled Suicide girls, one of the best online websites that focuses on different types of sexuality, with many women who do not meet the standards of beauty modeling there. In 2013, she was named one of the 100 sexiest women in the world by “FHM”, and later started working for the online platform of “Nuts” magazine.
She presented game reviews and news in a series called “Girl Got Game”, and did so with “Zoo” and “Talksport”.
One of Collett’s last appearances with her popular voluptuous figure was in the music video for Professor Green’s song “Remedy”. Sometime in the mid-2010s, she took a short break from modeling and returned with a much fuller figure. She had gained significant weight and later admitted that she was happier with a plus size, effectively making her a plus size model.
She started showing off her new look Instagramhowever, this also led to the beginning of her decline, as she gained more weight. The appeal of her figure slowly faded away, and while she still has many loyal fans, she doesn’t have the same popularity she used to. She also appeared less in magazines. In recent years, she has admitted that she gained weight mainly from a lifelong battle with depression. She uses her online platform to get modeling opportunities, mostly sponsored work for different companies. She is also not averse to posing half-naked, creating an account on the site Fans onlywhich allows her to earn a monthly income with the promise of providing exclusive content to her subscribers.
Lucy is single and has not spoken much about her romantic relationships. In 2005, her brother was attacked by another teenager during an altercation outside a pub. When he was rushed to hospital, it was discovered that the beating he received led to a brain hemorrhage, and he succumbed to the injury later in the day. The person responsible for the beating was sentenced to six years in prison, but her brother’s death deeply affected her and she suffered from self-harm and depression for about a year. Her interest in photography helped her get back on track. However, she still struggles with depression from time to time, especially in recent months when many of her critics lashed out at her for her weight gain. Many of her fans still support her even with the changes in her figure.
