Hot Property

‘LOS Angeles airport might think of installing a revolving door to accommodate the C-list celebs from Britain seeking fame and fortune and a I’ve Been To Hollywood T-shirt.

Gary has turned his back on Hollywood

It is now part of every minor soap actor or failed pop star’s education to follow in Martine McCutcheon’s footsteps and make the trip to conquer Tinseltown.

There, they meet with a couple of agents (drink in the same bar as a couple of agents), do a screen test (take a studio tour) and are hailed as ‘Britain’s answer to J-Lo’ (by their publicist back in Blighty).

Two weeks later, with Hollywood on its knees begging them to stay, a mixture of homesickness and disillusionment with the superficiality of the movie business forces them to return home and send their CV off to the producers of Heartbeat.

Former Footballers’ Wives star Gary Lucy is just one of many who have already walked where Kerry McPudding no longer fears to tread.

OK! catches up with Gary at his 21st birthday party, which appears to be about as well-attended as a Mike Read musical or an evening with Les Dennis.

And it informs us that, after a couple of trips over to America for auditions, the ex-Hollyoaks star ‘is now devoting his time to his property portfolio’.

That may be the C-list equivalent of the politician spending more time with his family, but fans of Gary should know that he is busy with other things as well.

He is planning to go on a skiing holiday next year…’
