‘I will never forgive myself for swapping my respect for attention’: Vicky Pattison has revealed her regrets over some of her raucous behaviour on Geordie Shore
Explaining that she was grateful for everything the show did for her career, she explained to The Daily Star:
‘I try not having regrets but I do have some. I know I’d never be where I am without [Geordie Shore] and I will always be grateful for that. I still love most of the cast like Holly, Kyle, Scotty, Aaron and Charlotte is doing amazingly well.
‘But having said that some of the things I did on Geordie Shore I will never forgive myself for. I lost myself on the show. I became a character lost in the machine.
‘I lost who I was as a person to give other people what I thought they wanted from me. I swapped my respect for attention for a while which I will always have to live with.’

Vicky was a staple character on Geordie Shore from 2011 to 2014, and during her time on the show was arrested for assaulting a teen in a club in 2013, as well as having sex on screen with ex-fiancé Ricci Guarnaccio – a move she later admitted regretting.
Keen to turn over a new leaf, she described herself as being ‘happy to walk away from the Megan McKenna and Jemma Lucy effect’.
Meanwhile Vicky is a self-professed fitness fanatic and is known for sharing a number of gym selfies on her social media.
And the gym bunny confidently showed off the fruits of her exercise labours on Saturday, as she stripped to a skimpy bikini for a sizzling Instagram snap.
The former Geordie Shore star displayed her enviably toned stomach and slim physique as she posed in the tiny two-piece – declaring to fans that after losing weight, she was now aiming to ‘tone up and trim down’.

Posing in front of a mirror, the reality star’s impressively toned figure took centre stage as she slipped into a tiny pink bikini for the snap.
Plunging into a V neckline, the top first gave a saucy flash of her cleavage – which was enhanced further with two rounded cut-outs across the bust.
Paired with skimpy bottoms which slit into multiple strings at the side, Vicky’s enviably toned abs and slim waist were then left on show as she posed sexily for the camera.

Clearly motivated to achieve her dream summer body, she wrote to fans: ‘Got a big campaign shoot coming up in 2 weeks and that means 1 thing: GAME TIME!!!’
‘Aiming to tone up and trim down but realistically- nothing too drastic- just an extra little push so I’m feeling great on my big day!!’

Despite not being fully satisfied, Vicky still exuded confidence in the snap – after being left disappointed by claims she had piled on the pounds last week.
With a nutritionist claiming she had ‘ballooned to a size 16’, the I’m A Celebrity Extra Camp star immediately blasted the accusations to MailOnline – declaring she is proud to be a normal twenty-something woman whose body changes.
She explained: ‘I am a size 10 and have been all year.
‘I work really hard to keep my figure fit, strong and healthy, but I’m a real woman and occasionally my weight fluctuates.’
She went on to explain that balance is key to staying healthy and happy, adding: ‘I train hard, I eat right but most of all I enjoy life & urge all women out there to do the same.’
