Lucy has taken the soap world by a storm since her debut as Bethany in 2015, and has picked up a number of prestigious accolades including Best Actress at the British Soap Awards. And while she appears to be confident, just like the rest of us, the actress has her insecurities. Lucy admitted to The Sunday People that she has signed up with a personal trainer as she wasn’t "happy" with her body. "I get insecure about things. I think body confidence is one of those things that concerns everybody," she said. "No one is ever completely happy with how they look."
