Lucy lives at home with her parents and older sister in Harpenden.
She left school after GCSE's and has since done a bit of waitressing
at TGI Fridays, and was a breakfast waitress in a local hotel.
She likes clubbing, drinking and late nights. She speaks French
and is interested in acting, music and drawing.
On entering the hosue, she said "I've never had to cook for myself
or do my own washing. My mum does everything - so this is going to
be quite a challenge for me."
The rules make it quite clear - a scullery maid should know her place.
"As scullery maid you are the lowest
ranking servant of all the female Staff. Positioned directly below the
kitchen maid in order of
seniority, you answer directly to her and the
chef de cuisine who is
head of the Kitchen Department."
It has been estimated that in Manor House, the scullery maid had to clean,
scour and scrub over four hundred knives, forks, pots and pans every day. And all this was
without washing-up liquid. All she had to work with was soda crystals - really hard on
The scullery maid had the smallest bedroom, ate with the hall boy on a separate table
from the other servants, and would only ever be allowed upstairs for morning prayers
