Lucy Haughey, who won Come Dine With Me in January this year, has confessed to having sex with her friend’s 15-year-old son after arranging a liason via Facebook.
The 37-year-old invited the schoolboy to her house on 25 June 2016, where the pair had sex – and Haughey later admitted to a friend that she was a “bad person”, a court heard.
The Mirror report that Haughey later boasted about her conquest, telling her friend online: “He wanted [to be] introduced, I’m an expert, it happened.
“I’m glad it was me and not a skinny skanky 15-year-old schemy.”
She is said to have later asked the friend to delete the conversation.
Prosecutor Claire Whyte also alleged that Haughey claimed the boy asked her for sex again but she turned him down, with it all coming to light when the friend contacted the boy’s mother via Facebook.
When confronted about the affair, the teenager “broke down and started crying and also admitted to having sex with the accused”, with the police being contacted.
Haughey’s sentence has been deferred to a later date but the mum-of-three has been put on the Sex Offenders’ register.
Haughey won £1,000 on Channel 4’s Come Dine With Me in an episode that was aired earlier this year.
