Lucy Victoria Collett (born 3 March 1989[1][2]), also known as Lucy V and Lucy Vixen,[3] is a British glamour model from Warwick, England.

She won The Sun newspaper's Page 3 Idol 2012 modeling contest, and frequently appears as a Page 3 girl in that newspaper. She has been featured regularly in men's magazine such as Nuts, Zoo, Front, Loaded, and Maxim.[3] In addition to her own subscription based website, she has modeled for several internet based erotic websites, such as Suicide Girls,[6] Pinup Wow,[7] Onlytease,[8] CurvedFX,[9] and Xtreme Playpen.[10]

In May 2013, FHM magazine named her one of its 100 Sexiest Women in the World, placing 89th on the list.[11][12]

Career[edit]

Boston Megafest 2013

Collett began her modeling career at age 17 as a hair model for Toni & Guy salons.[13] At this time, she began dyeing her naturally brown hair blond, and later her signature red color.[13] 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.[14][15]

Collett is a dress size 12–14 (UK) and wears a size 30G bra.[13][16] FHM has called her part of a "welcome new trend for curvaceous womanliness."[12] Her voluptuous figure and red hair have drawn comparisons with actress Christina Hendricks and cartoon sex symbol Jessica Rabbit.[17] 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.[17] 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"[14] and that she wants to promote a healthy body image for girls and women.[18]

Lucy has presented Nuts magazine's web series of games news and reviews "Girl Got Game".[19] and in March 2015 she began presenting ZOO magazine's web series "Game On".[20] In Feb. 2015 she presented a one-off video feature with Talksport.[21]

She appears in music videos including Professor Green's song "Remedy",[22] and Attention Thieves' song "Bring Yourself to Justice".[23]

Personal life[edit]

Before becoming a full-time professional model, she worked for six years as a waitress at Warwick Castle.[18]

Collett's father is a property developer, and her mother is a chiropodist.[13] She is the youngest of 4 children. Her parents divorced when she was 4 years old, after which she lived with her mother.[13] She attended Myton School in Warwick.[18]

On 19 May 2005, her 17-year-old brother Jacob was assaulted by another teenager following an altercation outside a pub in Leamington.[24] 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.[25][26] Her brother's death caused Lucy to suffer from a year-long depression and engage in incidents of self-harming. 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.[13]

Tottenham fans have been wanting to swap places with Arsenal for years, but would they ever swap shirts? The answer, you would think, would almost certainly be no. But what if the person asking them to swap shirts was a Page 3 Idol winner and cover girl?
