Lucie Loves... Life // Why I spent 5-days and 5-nights in solitary confinement, as part of a Channel 5 TV show
Back in October 2016, I took part in a social experiment which aired on Channel 5 as a one-off 90 minute documentary called 'In Solitary' produced by Stellify Media. The challenge? Spend 5-days and 5-nights in solitary confinement, with no technology, daylight, books, concept of time, and only three personal items to keep yourself entertained...
The experience was life-changing for all involved.
When the programme aired on Bank Holiday Monday in August 2017, I received so many questions from friends, family, followers on social media and viewers of the show. I wanted to film this video to answer as many of those questions as possible,to shine a light on why – as a blogger and a pretty freshly heartbroken woman – I decided to subject myself to such an extreme experiment.
Thank you to everyone for your kind words and messages of support. It means the world!
Below are a few photos that I took just after getting out of the box I couldn't resist documenting the world I'd created for myself! Watch the vlog to find out more about the experience and see inside the insolation pod.
