LORNA Southerill has had a make over to shout about thanks to pop singer Lulu.
Lorna, from Bury Park Drive, and her daughter Amy-Jane both work in Bury St Edmunds Waitrose but Lorna was enjoying a spa day with old school friends when the call came through last Monday that she had been chosen for Lulu’s over-50s makeover.
It had been Amy-Jane’s idea to put her mum up for it so she had to phone round the spas until she found Lorna.
ITV sent a limo to pick them up and while Amy-Jane hung out in the green room, getting her picture taken with stars like JLS, Lorna was having ‘before’ photos taken before being whisked of to top stylist John Frieda’s hair salon and getting her make-up done by Lulu’s personal make-up artist. Lulu, who is launching her own range of products, oversaw the whole process, which was screened last Thursday.
Lorna said: “I had the time of my life. Everybody on set was so lovely and friendly towards us. Lulu is just amazing. Apart from looking fabulous, she looked after us and made us feel so good.
“Amy-Jane was speechless when she saw it, she thought it was amazing. She was always saying ‘mum needs a makeover’ but you never think you’ll to get a chance like this.”
Lorna is now determined to keep up her new look.
