Very sad to hear of Lucy leaving ITV Central. I’m an 80 year old widower living alone and Lucy’s appearances (with that wonderful smile) never failed to brighten my day. So let me say a big thank you for your work on ITV Central weather and features. Will you still be doing the special features occasionally?
Wish you all the very best.

We are missing you Lucy, it was a real pleasure to see you in our living room, always a welcome vision, so warm, unassuming, and yet humble, I don’t think you realise how we loved seeing you. From two old codgers in our 70s. But the best of luck in whatever you do, the man in your life is so very lucky, but I expect he does realise that, hope you will be very happy. All the very best.
