Speaking to VIP Magazine, Lucy shares that she lives “very much in a fairy house…I love it. Children have beautiful hearts and such great imaginations.”

As for her Living With Lucy series, Lucy tells us she’s most excited for viewers to see the episode where she shacks up with TV personality Katie Price.

“I think that people will see how real she is.”

Already this Autumn we’ve watched as she’s shared a home with Gráinne Seoige, Ivan Yates and Gemma Collins.

If Lucy could live with whoever she wanted, her list is ambitious; “Michelle Obama, Pat Kenny, Jamie Dornan, Amy Schumer. I could keep going!!”

Lucy Investigates is also on the way, though she informs us they don’t start filming until before Christmas.

Still, she has “no doubt” that she’ll be out of her “comfort zone, again!”

On top of her ongoing achievements, Lucy has teamed up for her second consecutive year with Benecol, for their ‘What’s Your Number?’ campaign.

The campaign aims to support heart health and raise awareness of the issue of high cholesterol which affects 1 in 2 Irish adults and, if untreated, can contribute to coronary heart disease.

Benecol is running a free cholesterol-testing day on Tuesday the 17th of October in selected Hickey’s and AllCare pharmacies nationwide.

What’s more, for those who don’t have a participating pharmacy location nearby, some free home tests are available via post.

Lucy tells us it’s “it’s important for people to get tested is because high cholesterol is very common, especially in Ireland.

“I want to show people that it’s not a scary test to get done. I’ll be getting my cholesterol tested live on my Instagram to prove that the test itself is nothing to worry about.”

She reveals that “embarrassingly, I’d never had it checked before last year.

“Thankfully I was okay and my cholesterol levels were low but I didn’t know until I got tested. Now I’m getting it re-tested on the 17th to make sure that it’s still low, you have to keep on top of these things.”
