Lucie Jones: 'thank you, Grazia!'

07 January 2010

Make me a Supermodel? It seems Grazia can...

X Factor’s lovely Lucie Jones spilled over with excitement when we asked her how her new modelling career was getting on, and thanked Grazia personally for helping her along the way. Shucks!

We braved last night’s blizzard for the opening night of Cirque de Soleil’s Varekai show at the Royal Albert Hall, where Select’s latest signing told us: ‘The scouts called me up – I think it was after they saw me in Grazia! I never thought I'd be a model – I always assumed everybody would just laugh at me for trying! I’ve got my first shoot tomorrow and I’m so excited.

‘I’d love to do some London Fashion Week shows but I don’t think they’d have me! I really admire what those models do.’

But there still seems to be a little unrest since the 19-year-old’s controversial X Factor exit, where
Simon gave her the nudge to save Jedward. ‘Simon hated me. I could tell,’ she said. ‘I tried not to take it personally but there was something about me he really didn't like.’

Boo! What a meanie! Meanwhile, fellow contestant Stacey Solomon might want to give her fashionista pal’s new wardrobe a rummage, after admitting that she purchased last night’s dress from the oh-so-swanky stalls in Dagenham market!

‘I get so much stuff sent to me now, but I still like my market bits!’ giggled 20-year-old Stacey – and yes, she does actually speak like that!

We're happy to take any spare freebies off you, Stacey.
