Lucy attended the Man vs Wild star Bear Grylls' show at Vector Arena in Auckland on 3 December and she tweeted the following including photo. This is the same show that had the Kiwi PM on stage eating a live cricket, a grub and maggots on stage.  

 

Lucy tweeted in February that her sons are huge fans of the show

I confess my boys and I are huge Bear Grylls fans. I read his books aloud at night, my son will only wear BG trousers, wants to join army!

Just saw Bear Grylls on tv eating an NZ weta. Noooooo! They are too beautiful to be prey when you have a protein bar in your pocket.
