'No drugs for me' – Vogue Williams quashes rumours she’ll take LSD on TV

Vogue Williams has said she will not be taking drugs on-screen for her upcoming RTE series.
The 30-year-old model had previously caused a stir when she said she would take LSD live on air for her new show, Vogue Williams on the Edge, but she has since cleared up the rumours.
“The thing about that is the story got leaked. I got asked by my editor about that story and at the time, before you go into production of a show, you have a million ideas on the table,” she told Today FM’s Last Word with Matt Cooper this week.
“That was one of them and that was a possibility but we didn’t go ahead with it like we wouldn’t with hundreds of other ideas. That one got out and I won’t be taking LSD, don’t worry.
“No drugs for me, my mum told me not to,” she said with a laugh.
The Howth native continued that if the opportunity arose in future, she’d want to follow Channel 4’s Jon Snow, who smoked ‘skunk’ in front of millions of viewers as part of the documentary Drugs Live: Cannabis on Trial.
“For me, LSD is a very strong way to go. Jon Snow was smoking skunk, and I would be more inclined to go on the skunk smoking side than LSD.”
“But no drugs on TV for now,” she added.
