On Air Now
Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden 6:30am - 10am
Lucy Ellis is here every Saturday afternoon. Join her for the perfect weekend soundtrack, 1pm - 5pm.
We've probed into her past to find out all about her big feet and why you might have a long wait if you offer to buy her a drink...
What was the last CD you bought/track you downloaded?
I bought the Script’s album but that’s unusual for me as I tend to buy random songs rather than whole albums.
Most listened to track on my iPod:
I’m pretty fickle so it changes. At the moment Lady GaGa - Paparazzi is a big favourite but Kings of Leon gets played a lot too.
Most embarrassing track on my iPod:
Mmm…. I have a few Stock Aitken and Waterman lovelies on there but I only downloaded them for a mate’s birthday do.. honest!
Who would your ideal guest be?
Brad Pitt – I’d give him a good talking to about Jennifer Aniston!
What’s your karaoke track of choice?
A bit random but Vanessa Carlton 1000 miles – it’s easy to sing - I’ve had a few disasters with S Club 7 songs in the past!
First album I bought:
Rick Astley! And I had a life sized picture of him on my wall!
Favourite gig you’ve ever been to?
My partner, Simon loves Chas and Dave so I took him to a gig for his birthday a couple of years ago. At the end they pulled out this battered suitcase and started flogging CD’s on stage Del Boy style! It was hilarious!
Favourite live music venue?
I’m not fussy – as long as they sell cider I’m happy!
What's the best thing about having your own show on Heart?
The music’s brill but I’m quite nosey so I get really excited when I get texts when I’m on air! I like finding out what people are up to!
What makes you laugh?
Anything slapstick or ironic! People falling over’s really funny – I should know, it’s usually me!
What's the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Focus on the things you have got rather than the things you haven’t.
How would your best friend describe you in three words?
Fun... considerate... and late!
Which bit of your body do you like the least?
My feet are pretty rank and really big! I felt really sorry for the poor woman who gave me a pedicure recently for my friends wedding.
What were you like at school?
Really square! In fact that was my nickname! I always did my homework on time and never answered back and was an all round good girl….in school anyway!
I'm most proud of... honestly?
My parents actually – they used to teach and when they retired I was really touched by all the lovely things everyone said about them. It made me realise what great people they are.
We’re buying, what will you have?
Cider, no, a spritzer …no wait gin and tonic or maybe Pimms – sorry I’m really indecisive!! Can I just have one of each?
Worst job I ever had:
A Saturday job in a shoe shop – dealing with people’s feet all day was really gross – especially in summer!
From my wardrobe you can have…
Nothing – I’m a total hoarder so can’t get rid of anything ‘just in case’ although I’m sure there are a few things of mine my other half would happily give you as long as you promised to burn them!
If you're getting a takeaway I’ll have..
Chinese please! I’ll spend ages looking at the menu and then order what I always have anyway!
Great for getting the gossip on what everyone’s up to! I’m a real wall dropper!
The first thing I do when I get out of the Heart Studio is...
My special end of show dance and run around the office 3 times for luck - not really! I call my other half to see what’s for tea!
Why didn't you ask me about...
My shady past………;)
