Lulu peers through the Vauxhall Astra’s windscreen

Lulu is a Great British Legend

Lulu follows in the footsteps of fellow legends Harry Enfield and David Haye, who took part in the our first two installments of Vauxhall Astra’s ‘Great British Legends’ seriesinstalments, which profiles some of Britain’s best loved figures from the world of sport, comedy and entertainment.


As Lulu says from behind the wheel of a Vauxhall Astra, “My career has taken me on an incredible journey. I’ve been fortunate enough to have achieved as much as I have and joined some other legends along the way, and to have this acknowledged by Vauxhall feels very special.”


One in four Brits has either owned or driven a Vauxhall Astra at some point in their lives, and Vauxhall has decided to celebrate this, alongside some other British living legends.
