Next month’s London Boat Show will be officially opened by Lucy Watson, star of TV show Made In Chelsea, it has been announced

The London Boat Show always features a sprinkling of stardust and next month’s event will be no exception, with Lucy Watson of Made In Chelsea fame due to cut the ribbon.

The actress, model and avid sailor will be appearing at the British Marine Boat Shows stand at 1100 on Friday January 8, the organisers announced.

In a statement, British Marine Boat Shows added: “As a firm fixture of the London social scene and a fan of all kinds of activity on the water, Lucy is a great fit for the show.”

Lucy will no doubt want to check out the new Mediterranean Bay area, which gives show visitors a chance to get on the water indoors.

Other key attractions at the 2016 London Boat Show will include the public launch of the new Princess 75 and Sunseeker 131.

Advance tickets are on sale now, with prices starting at £10 per adult for midweek entry. Those wishing to see Lucy Watson on preview day will have to pay the full rate of £20 per adult.
