Lucy and Tom Pearce in TOWIE, aired 20 October 2013.

Good news for us as Lucy's been involved in a headline-making storyline lately after hooking up with co-star Tom Pearce.

It's no surprise rumours surfaced that Lucy was leaving, however, as she's got plenty of time-consuming projects on the go outside of the reality show.

In addition to her hectic filming schedule, the petite star is the owner of two stores under her Lucy's Boutique brand, and an accompanying website. She also runs a successful fitness and nutrition website called Results With Lucy and recently signed as the face of lingerie range By Caprice.

And if that isn't enough, there's also been talk of her launching Results With Lucy in America and taking on her debut movie role.

Makes us a bit tired just thinking about it all!
