Despite Lily Allen telling the world and its dog that her documentary was “rubbish” and advising them not to watch it, many of us have done the opposite.
And last night’s Riches To Rags, which follows Lily Allen as she tries to establish a vintage clothes shop with her sister, start a family with her boyfriend and of course, try to shake off all that ‘unwanted press attention’, ended on a very sad note.
Over the past few weeks we’ve watched as Lily takes offence to her sister taking over in the running of vintage store Lucy in Disguise, played with her dog and gone to various events.
We’ve also watched her suffer morning sickness and have to take time off because at the time of filming she was pregnant. Of course we’ve been watching the series in fear because we know what happens, and we really hoped the show’s producers dealt with it in the sympathetic way it deserved. And we were pleasantly surprised as when the scenes finally hit Lily was strong. In fact she and her sister sat and discussed the tragedy in depth.
Not only did this show Lily in a new light but also put paid to our views that Lily wasn’t just a one dimensional celebrity.
