Lucy Alexander: 'Not talking was tough' Homes Under The Hammer presenter on tricky moment

Lucy Alexander, 48, has been enjoying a well-deserved break after previously revealing she was staying at a retreat in the sunny isles of Spain. The former Homes Under the Hammer presenter went on a hike but had to seemingly complete the walk in silence, which admittedly was “tough” for the property expert. The small-screen star was pictured atop a cliff sporting a pair of hiking boots as she posed for the photo. In view of 34,600 Instagram followers, she wrote: “Never did I think I would enjoy a 10k coastline hike so much. Half of it was walked ‘silently’.

“I know right… ME not talking was tough BUT so rewarding and amazing scenery & beaches along the way. A wonderful part of what @thebodycampmallorca offer. #specialtimes #retreat #calm #mindfulness #happy.”

Fans inundated the TV star with comments on her hiking adventure, as one person said: “Looks amazing, well done you, hope you relax now and have that glass of wine!”

Another person commented: “That looks so amazing! Making me want to get away from my desk and actually exercise!”

While a third person added: “You look incredible.”

Presenter Ruth Langsford replied to The Customer Is Always Right host and said: “YOU….not talking?!!! They’re miracle workers!”

The This Morning presenter’s cheeky jibe comes after Lucy took time to react to Eamonn Holmes’ Instagram snap, as he claimed a naked photo of a woman he uploaded was his wife Ruth.

The unidentified person stood with one foot on a rake as they got stuck into gardening whilst wearing nothing but a khaki hat.

Eamonn captioned the hilarious upload: “Honestly, I’ve said to Ruth ‘Come in now…. it’s getting cold and dark!’ But the garden looks great.”

Lucy responded to the image and said: “Tbh face IS familiar now come to think of it.”(sic)

Meanwhile, the BBC favourite recently switched gears from her role as a property expert and is now fronting The Customer Is Always Right.

The programme features a host of entrepreneurs whilst they watch members of the public try out their products.

During an episode earlier this week, the show suffered a technical glitch which saw the same clip play twice.

Lucy chatted about an entrepreneur’s product which was a mirror indicator and asked the customers give their scores on the item.

As the camera panned away from the host, she could be heard saying: “Here’s what the customers have scored the mirror indicator.”

Just as viewers awaited the scores, suddenly Lucy’s voice could be heard again, as the audio repeated everything she previously said.

The confusion seemingly appeared to be a technical error with the editing of the show.

The Customer Is Always Right continues today on BBC One at 11am.
