Vicky Pattison volunteers at a food bank to help others not to feel alone this Christmas after heartbreaking split from her fiance

The former Geordie Shore beauty helped with food preparation and serving meals to visitors at Newcastle's West End Foodbank with her parent on Wednesday 28 November.

The 31 year old documented her good deed on her Instagram account.

Speaking in a string of videos en route to the site, she said: "Me and my lovely mum are off to the West End Foodbank today, to do some food prep and help feed the homeless.

"On a day like today it makes you feel super grateful you have got a roof over your head, heating and food in your belly.

"So we thought we would go and help out doing our little bit for the week.  I hope you all have a great day."

The I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! 2015 champion hopes her actions will inspire other people to help out too.

She continued: "I bet there is plenty of you out there who want to do a good deed before Christmas.

"So who knows, I might inspire you to get up and give it a go."

Vicky went on to pan around the room to show the food parcels that will be handed out at the centre.

The star also gave her 4.1 million followers a closer look at the hot dishes the Foodbank served up, which included lasagne and curry.

Vicky has been very open about her emotions since she ended her romance with John, after she found out he had been grinding on girls in a club.

The star hoped her day volunteering would give her perspective.

In a separate Instagram post, Vicky wrote: "I haven’t had a lot to smile about recently and to be quite honest I wanted to go and gain some perspective and realise how fortunate I actually am regardless of how I’m currently feeling. And it did just that.

"In fact today was the most I’ve liked myself in weeks.

"Today was an eye opener. How many people this amazing place helps blew my mind. But they could help so many more with just a little more input from our community.
"We helped prepare food for the lunch service, organised some food parcels and served some lovely warm meals to the kind people who visited today looking for a break from the cold and something nice and nutritious to eat.
"I’m 110 per cent going back next time I’m in Newcastle …

"Christmas is fast approaching guys and I don’t know about you but if I can help it, I don’t want to see anyone in my region be hungry or feel alone. And I couldn’t stand the thought of a little boy or girl without an advent calendar."
