Lucy Victoria Collett (born 3 March 1989[1][2]), also known as Lucy V and Lucy Vixen,[3] is a glamour model. She won The Sun newspaper's Page 3 Idol 2012 modeling contest, and she appears as a Page 3 girl in that newspaper. She also features regularly in British men's magazines. In May 2013, FHM magazine named her one of its 100 Sexiest Women in the World.[5]

Modeling career[edit]

Collett began her modeling career at age 17 as a hair model for Toni & Guy salons.[6] At this time, she began dyeing her naturally brown hair blond, and later her signature red color.[6] In December 2011, at the age of 22, she was declared the winner of The Sun's Page 3 Idol 2012 competition and became a Page 3 girl.[7][8] She now features regularly in men's magazines, including Loaded, FHM, Zoo, Nuts, Front and Maxim.[3] She appeared in the music video for Professor Green's song "Remedy".[9]

Collett is a dress size 12–14 (UK) and wears a size 30G bra.[6][10] FHM has called her part of a "welcome new trend for curvaceous womanliness."[9] Her voluptuous figure and red hair have drawn comparisons with actress Christina Hendricks and cartoon sex symbol Jessica Rabbit.[11] The Sun has sent Collett onto the streets of London dressed as Joan Holloway, Hendricks's character in Mad Men, to gauge men's reaction.[11] Collett has said that she wants to "send out the message that you don’t have to be a size six to be a model"[7] and that she wants to promote a healthy body image for girls and women.[12]

In May 2013, she was named one of FHM magazine's 100 Sexiest Women in the World, placing 89th on the list.[5]

Lucy is a keen gamer and presented Nuts magazine's web series of games news and reviews "Girl Got Game".[13] and in March 2015 she began presenting ZOO magazine's web series "Game On".[14] Recently she has done some work with Talksport. [15]

Background and personal life[edit]

Collett's father is a property developer, and her mother is a chiropodist.[6] She is the youngest of 4 children.[6] Her parents divorced when she was 4 years old, after which she lived with her mother.[6] She attended Myton School in Warwick.[12]

On 19 May 2005, her 17-year-old brother Jacob was assaulted by another teenager following an altercation outside a pub in Leamington.[16] He suffered a brain haemorrhage and died in Warwick Hospital around 1 AM on 20 May 2005. His assailant was subsequently convicted of manslaughter and received a 6-year prison sentence.[17][18] Her brother's death caused Lucy to suffer from a year-long depression and engage in incidents of self-harming.[6] She credits an interest in photography, which she studied for her A-levels, with giving her the ability to overcome her grief and depression and rebuild her life.[6]

Before becoming a full-time professional model, she worked for six years as a waitress at Warwick Castle.[12]
