VICKY Pattison is one of many stars hoping to impress with their cooking skills on Celebrity MasterChef.
The TV personality has remained strong after her shock split with ex-fiancé John Noble last year, but what else should you know about her? Here’s the lowdown…
Why did she split from John Noble?
In November, 2018, Vicky Pattison had called it quits with her fiancé John Noble after he’d been caught fooling around with another woman at a Dubai nightclub.
The Sun exclusively revealed how the reality star immediately shelved her wedding plans and wasted no time unfollowing her former beau from her social media platforms.
If that wasn’t bad enough, John left the home he had shared with Vicky shortly after the scandal, subsequently deciding to live with his mum instead.
Witnesses at the Billionaire Mansion club had revealed how John was not acting like a husband-to-be, having pushed his boundaries by getting touchy-feely with a mystery blonde throughout the night.
At the time, an onlooker shared: “It was shocking to see John behaving in the way he was. He was acting like a single man and didn’t care about who saw.
“The blonde lady was sat on his lap and they looked very cosy together. He had his arms around her waist and they were grinding on the dance floor.”
When does Celebrity Coach Trip start and how does it work?
Celebrity Coach Trip sees a number of celebs travel around in a coach to various destinations while voting face-to-face to eliminate other pairings.
Vicky will be paired up with Love Island star Scott Thomas in the upcoming series, and they must avoid receiving two yellow cards while on the trip as that will result in a red card and consequently get them booted off the show.
According to TellyMix, the latest series will consist of ten, hour-long episodes airing across weeknights later in the year.
Channel 4 has yet to reveal an official start date, but given that we already know the line-up, it seems as if an announcement is likely going to be made very soon.
Vicky had taken to Instagram, letting her fans know about her new TV gig, writing:
“SO HAPPY I CAN FINALLY ANNOUNCE THAT I TOOK PART IN THIS YEAR’s Celebrity @coachtripofficial!!!!! And even more exciting than that I did it with my @loveisland bestie @scottyspecial!!!!!
“My fellow coach trippers are all amazing guys and I literally made friends for life!! Can’t wait for you to see our adventure with Brendan the Legend!!!”
Who is Vicky dating now?
Three months after her split with John, Vicky kicked off a new romance with Ercan Ramadan.
If you’re familiar with him, that wouldn’t be all that surprising since Ercan has appeared in several episodes of The Only Way Is Essex and The Only Way Is Marbs.
And though he was never a permanent cast member, the handsome fella is said to be good friends with a handful of reality stars.
Ercan is also close pals with Love Island 2018 star Jack Fincham – the two are often enjoying night out together, so Ercan definitely knows how to stay in the limelight.
Regarding his relationship with Vicky, the two actually called it quits in March because the brunette felt as if things were moving too quickly between the two.
Two months later, however, The Sun revealed that the pair had reconciled.
Who is Vicky Pattison?
Vicky was born November 16, 1987, in Newcastle, England.
Before finding fame she worked on the door of some of Newcastle’s nightclubs.
She rose to fame on MTV’s Geordie Shore.
In 2015 she was crowned Queen of the jungle when she won I’m A Celebrity.
This year, she joined the all-star line-up of this year’s Celebrity MasterChef.
And on July 18, it was confirmed that Vicky had also been cast to star in the upcoming series of E4’s Celebrity Coach Trip.
When was Vicky Pattison on Geordie Shore and why did she quit?
Before the Geordie Shore house opened its doors to eight unsuspecting party animals in 2011, no one knew who Vicky was.
She rocketed to fame with her signature straight talking on the show which also starred Gary Beadle, Charlotte Crosby and Holly Hagan.
Vicky left the show in 2014 and took part in two seasons of explicit dating show Ex on the Beach which constantly hit the headlines for its contestants’ outrageous behaviour.
After surviving the show with her dignity still intact, Vicky left the wild antics of the beach – and the tablet of terror – to take on the challenge of her own show, Judge Geordie.
It involved her offering to sort out feuds between families and friends.
