Less phone more books: Lily Allen has vowed to cut back on her phone use as her 2021 New Year’s resolution

Lily, who tied the knot with Stranger Things actor David Harbour last year, took to Instagram to announce her mission, penning a caption alongside a pouting selfie video with ‘less phone, more books’ written over the top.

Her caption read: ‘I’m gonna try. These things are designed so we don’t put them down. My brain suffers, my relationships suffer, my work or creative endeavors all suffer as a result. I’ve ditched the drugs, booze and fags…

‘So hopefully this year I’ll be able to cultivate a new, healthier relationship with my phone. Wish me luck.’

Beneath the post, author Clover Stroud reached out to Lily to ask if she would like a copy of her book My Wild and Sleepless Nights, which was released in February.

In 2018, she came under fire for glamourising drug-taking after admitting she snorted a line of ketamine at the Glamour Woman Of The Year Awards in 2008.

Describing what happened, Allen said: ‘Someone gave me a line of what I assumed to be cocaine at the Glamour awards once, but it turned out to be Ketamine. I was thrown out (passed over some railings) of the Glamour awards for being in a k hole.’

She added: ‘Obviously I couldn’t talk, or direct the driver so my assistant instructed the occupant of the car behind to “follow that cab” I believe the occupant was @chattyman , I have no idea what happened next.’
