LIght­Ing Lucy’s way

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - YOUR TV WEEK - wIth KMFM BREaK­Fast shOw’s EMMa saInt Emma

It has been a busy week at kmfm Break­fast, and one of the high­lights was chat­ting to for­mer X Fac­tor star Lucy Sprag­gan. She was forced to bow out of the com­pe­ti­tion due to ill­ness, but is still pur­su­ing a ca­reer in mu­sic, and is about to re­lease her de­but sin­gle Light­house. She is a lovely girl, and de­scribes her mu­sic as ‘A-Flop’, a mix­ture of acous­tic, folk and hip-hop. She told us that Light­house was in­spired by her jour­ney across Amer­ica at the age of 18, armed with just her gui­tar and a three-month visa. Play­ing shows and couch surf­ing, she trav­elled across 23 states with light­houses help­ing to lead the way. Lucy told us: “Light­houses are my good omen. When I was in the US and stuff went wrong, when I’d miss the last bus or I’d run out of money, I’d al­ways see a light­house on a piece of pa­per, beer bot­tle or in real life then things would start get­ting bet­ter.” If you missed our in­ter­view with Lucy head over to kmfm. co.uk and have a lis­ten! And if you want to see Lucy in ac­tion, she will be re­turn­ing to the county on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 21, for a per­for­mance at Mar­gate’s Win­ter Gar­dens. We have been play­ing Fash­ion or Fic­tion on the show. Each day my co-pre­sen­ter Rob Wills and I have been test­ing lis­ten­ers’ fash­ion knowl­edge, ask­ing whether they think a state­ment is true or false. If they got the ques­tion right, they won £50 to spend at Hemp­stead Val­ley in Gilling­ham. All the win­ners will be join­ing us at the shop­ping cen­tre on Fri­day, June 21, to com­pete for the chance to win £250 of shop­ping vouch­ers. Rob and I will be there from 5pm, and there will be a host of give­aways and com­pe­ti­tions, so make sure you come along and see us. So the sun is still yet to ar­rive this sum­mer, but the gloomy weather has pro­vided the per­fect ex­cuse to stay in­side and watch one of my favourite pro­grammes – Big Brother! I have been an avid fan since it first started, and was so ex­cited when the new se­ries started last Thurs­day. The new house looks great, and I re­ally like the host Emma Wil­lis. It’s great to have a woman pre­sent­ing it again. I can’t wait to see what hap­pens.
