Vicky Pattison postponed wedding so she wouldn’t overshadow sister’s nuptials

Straight from the horse's mouth, as she says

Vicky Pattison has cleared up rumours about why she postponed her wedding to fiancé John Noble.

The former Queen of the Jungle had originally planned to wed businessman John this summer, but announced earlier this month she was pushing back the nuptials.

Of course, that led to an inevitable wave of speculation about whether something had gone wrong.

Now, Vicky, 30, has spoken out to clarify the situation, saying it was simply a combination of factors that came into play.

As well as struggling to find the time to plan the big day, she told The Wright Stuff on Tuesday that she didn’t want to overshadow her sister, who is also getting married this year.

Matthew Wright kicked off the discussion by saying he’d “lost track” of the stories surrounding her wedding postponement.

Vicky replied: “Let me tell you straight now, from the horse’s mouth, me and John got engaged last summer and, of course, I was so overwhelmed and thrilled you think, ‘I’m going to get married next summer.’

“But the practicalities of that… it’s just very difficult to plan it in a year.

“I have some great things coming my way work-wise and my sister is actually getting married this year and I didn’t want to steal or rain on her parade. So the wedding has been pushed back until next summer, 2019.”

Vicky said: “I’m happily engaged now. I’ve relocated back up north and I’m happy and settled. The times of me getting drunk and lairy are diminished, shall we say!”

Unsurprisingly, she also denied rumours she is planning a return to Geordie Shore, the show that made her famous.

Laughing, Vicky said: “No, I don’t know where this has come from!

“I left Geordie Shore at least four years ago now and although I’m incredibly grateful it gave me the opportunity to do amazing things, it’s a chapter that is in the past.”

Geordie Shore has certainly led to bigger and better things for Vicky!

As well as winning I’m A Celebrity in 2015, she appeared on MTV’s Ex On The Beach, landed a Loose Women panellist job, co-presented the I’m A Celeb spinoff in 2016, and now presents a new MTV show called Ex on the Beach: Body SOS.

She’s also penned an autobiography and string of novels, as well as landing huge endorsement deals with the likes of Ann Summers.

Not bad, eh?
