The Newquay native exuded confidence with her effortlessly stunning appearance when she first entered the villa as an original Islander in June.  

And while she attempted to keep up with her strict fitness regime on the show, the blonde beauty has since found it difficult to maintain her UK size 6 figure due to her busy schedule.

Lucie – who shrunk from a UK size 12 to 6 after kick-starting her weight loss in the summer of 2017 – shared: ‘I’ve put some weight on, I don’t know if anyone has realised.’

The TV personality explained: ‘I’m lucky because I surf, but yeah I’m juggling that with going to the gym. When you’re in the spotlight, you want to look your best, so it has been hard.’ 

Lucie recently rekindled her romance with partner Joe, 23, after weeks of being apart as he was booted off the villa early on in the series. 

During his fleeting stint, the hunk was even accused of ‘gaslighting’ Lucie when he admitted he wanted her to spend less time with the boys in the villa, especially sportsman Tommy Fury. 

Explaining the differences between their relationship on the show and now, the sportswomen said: ‘Life has been crazy but fun, it was a once in a lifetime opportunity.

‘We were together at the beginning for like two weeks, so we didn’t properly know each other – you don’t get to know someone fully within two weeks.

‘When we both came out, we went on a few dates and reconnected. We were friends but we were also secretly dating on the down low, which was nice as we got to know each other without the pressure.

‘When we got into the house, we shared a bed on the first night and I thought that was quite full-on.’

Unlike runners-up Tommy and Molly-Mae, the social media sensation wants to take things slow with Joe, insisting she’s not ready to live with him just yet.

She shared: ‘In the villa, you get to know each other so well, but after the show, you really get to see what your lives are like and you can meet each other’s families. I showed Joe what I do in my spare time and vice versa, which has been so nice.

‘We’d love to plan a nice holiday. I’ve never moved in with a boyfriend and to be honest we’re definitely too young for that. 

‘I couldn’t be away from the beach and I’ve still got a lot of work up here, so it’s nice to have our own space and keep our relationship chill.’

During her stint, Lucie was caught in a love triangle with boxer Tommy and his girlfriend Molly-Mae, both 20, as she boldly admitted she had feelings for him while in a new romance with the Instagram influencer.

Admitting she hasn’t spoken to the pair since, the TV star said: ‘I haven’t kept in contact with them since leaving the villa, they’ve obviously been really busy which is good for them.’

In the villa, she broke down in tears as she struggled to connect with the girls in the villa.

Sharing who she’s kept in contact with since leaving the show, Lucie detailed: ‘I’ve been really close in Belle [Hassan], we got a completely different personalities but we really get each other. 

‘I’ve spoken to Joanna [Chimonides] and I’ve also kept in touch with Maura [Higgins] too, but she’s a bit busy. It’s been really nice to have them girly friends from the show.’

‘You find your real friends when you get to know each other’, she bluntly added.
