Vicky Pattison admits fame made her insufferable at times: 'I was awful to my agents'
Vicky Pattison has confessed to being a "right d***" to people after she won 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' in 2015, and insists she didn't understand the "magnitude" of fame when she signed up for 'Geordie Shore'.
Former 'Geordie Shore' star Vicky Pattison says fame made her “a proper a*******”.
The reality TV star has confessed to being a "right d***" in the aftermath of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' in 2015, admitting she was "awful" to her agents.
The 35-year-old star said: "You can get caught up in fame. I’ve had my moments.
“When I came out of the jungle I was a right d***. I look back on it and think, ‘My God, you were really flirting with being a proper a******* there, Vicky.'
“I was awful to my agents. I was always tired.
“I’d just won the biggest TV show in the country and people wanted me to be on stuff - I should’ve been grateful, but I just wanted to party with friends and enjoy being a famous person.”
Vicky admitted the rude comments she used to receive at the start of her career kept her “relatively grounded”.
She said: “I would walk around a supermarket and some guy would say, ‘There’s that s*** off the telly’. I believe I’m relatively grounded.
“I’m grateful for those comments, they brought me back to earth.”
Vicky - who is set to wed her man Ercan Ramadan, 38 - admitted she didn't understand the "magnitude" of fame when she started out in reality TV.
She added to The Sun newspaper: “I don’t think I understood the magnitude of what I was doing. I definitely didn’t anticipate where I am now.
“I was naive. There’s no rule book for it. That type of reality TV, 'Geordie Shore', 'TOWIE', was all new.
“I made a lot of mistakes. First of all, I was an absolute scumbag.
“You can say the TV made me do it, and I’ll place blame where it deserves to be placed.
“Sometimes I was put in situations where I wasn’t comfortable, sometimes I played up to the cameras because I was trying to give producers what they want, and sometimes you have to hold your hands up.”
