Britain's Next Top Model
Lucy Emily Ratcliffe (born 1985 in North Shields, Tyne & Wear) is an English fashion model and the inaugural winner of Britain's Next Top Model.
Lucy grew up in Cullercoats, a small fishing Village on the east coast, in Northumberland. Before participating in the television show, Lucy worked as a barmaid/waitress in North Shields, North Tyneside and attended Whitley Bay High School. After seeing an advertisement after an episode of America's Next Top Model announcing a British version of the show, Lucy decided to send in a video tape and pictures of herself and got a callback for a live audition.
Lucy won the competition, receiving a modelling contract with Models 1 in London, a cosmetics campaign with Ruby & Millie Cosmetics, and a fashion spread in B Magazine.Then-host, Lisa Butcher, thought Lucy grew self-confident over the ten weeks of the competition, and proved that "She has what it takes to cut it in all aspects of modelling."
Lucy was signed with Models 1, she has said about her job, "I love the creative aspect. You get to meet interesting people, people who think like you but also people who are completely different. You can be rewarded for being who you are, but also being able to act as someone else when required on a shoot or in a show."
Lucy reappeared on Britain's Next Top Model, Cycle 2 to give advice to the contestants, including Lianna Fowler and Abigail Clancy.
In April 2007, Lucy appeared on the cover of Country House Magazine. Lucy left Models 1 and signed with Profile Model Management under the name Lucy Berry. She is currently based in the United States.
