Made In Chelsea’s Lucy Watson is on YouTube… but she says she will “definitely” go back to TV
With Jamie Laing fast becoming a Youtube sensation, it seems other Made In Chelsea cast members are taking a leaf out of his book too.
Definitely more mellow than Jamie’s prank and challenge channel, Lucy Watson’s YouTube channel seems to focus predominantly on makeup and veganism thus far. Her posts have included vlogs such as ‘My Vegan Story’, as well as a few makeup tutorials such as ‘Makeup On Tiffany’.
Although we assume Lucy is trying to create a more serious YouTube series, there is admittedly some unintentional comedy value to be found in her vlogs.
Her latest Q&A video, in which she sat down in front of the camera for a whole 20 minutes, delivered some amusing justifications for her vegan lifestyle.
Talking about how she had banished all leather from her home, she explained: “I also got rid of my car… because every time I was getting into it I was like… it smells like dead cow, and it’s horrible, and it’s just like bad karma.”
“I just kinda thought, you know what, I know it looks cool, but it’s tainted. It’s tainted with death.”
She also described how she refuses to feed her pets’ meat, feeding her dog mainly “broccoli, carrot and sweet potato”.
When asked about how she copes with her meat-eating boyfriend James she replied: “Ugh… yah… it is hard sometimes… dating someone who eats meat… It is hard because it’s like, I dunno, it’s tricky.”
Fashion was a topic that was touched upon briefly as well: “Why the FRIG would you wanna wear a dead animal?”
Who knew someone could be so dramatic about veganism?
Props to the MIC star though, who has been donating the money she makes from selling her leather goods to the RSPCA.
Those of you who are a little dubious about Lucy’s YouTube venture, no fear; the reality TV personality has said she sees herself returning to the main screen: “I hope that I will get back into TV. I’m having a break for now because I’ve been doing it solidly for four years but it is my passion and I would like to get into documentaries. Who knows? But it’s definitely something I’ll go back to.”
In the meantime, Lucy is using her time away from television to help animal charities. She explained: “I have loads of plans, I’m going to be doing a lot more charity work with animal charities and raising awareness. I’m also working towards a few other business ideas, which I can’t disclose right now but you’ll be finding out by the end of this year. I’ve been working really hard on them for a long time. I’m basically really busy. I have a lot going on to do with animal related stuff and trying to prevent animal cruelty. I’m just doing stuff I really care about.”
Good on you, Lucy!
