Courtney’s Into Fine Dining

This girl’s had more tomato sorbet than you could shake a stick at.

Move over Heston Blumenthal, Courtney Smith’s getting experimental with her dinners.

Courtney’s Insta stories are chock-a-block with posh restaurants, from The Fat Duck to Barton. G, she’s there.

Courtney Is Strong Minded

The brunette beauty had a pretty public breakup with Henry Simmons on episode 1 of Absolutely Ascot.

She looks to be dealing with it pretty well, though.

Apart from insinuating that Henry’s new girlfriend, Leah Fletcher, was a cow and dissing her ‘fake’ Louis Vuitton sunglasses, that is.

Courtney Smith’s a Classy Gal

Not only does she take her fashion seriously, Courtney is serious about morals and manners.

She describes herself as “complicated, hard work and loveable”.

Hard work for her parents, maybe.

In episode 2 Courtney said on her shopping spree: “sometimes you need retail therapy and dad’s credit cards help that”.

“I’m not saying money is happiness, but it helps!”

How Old is Courtney Smith?

Courtney is 19 years old.

She celebrated her 19th birthday with a flapper-themed party on August 24th.

Her birthday party is set to air on Absolutely Ascot, let’s just hope it’s not as eventful as Angelbo Stanley’s was in episode 5!

As long as Courtney’s best friend, Amber Tucker Chandler, isn’t dragging her into more drama everything should be plain sailing.
