Vicky Pattison has decided to quit Loose Women after nine months.
The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here winner, who was extremely popular as a part-time panellist on the lunchtime show, has decided to leave to focus on other opportunities.
A source close to the reality star said: “Vicky is young and the show is aimed at an older audience. Her diary has been jam-packed ever since she left the jungle but Loose Women was too good an opportunity to turn down.
“However, it’s a full-time job and with her diary the way it is, Vicky was finding it increasingly hard to fit it in and devote her full attention to it.”
The gorgeous Geordie Shore lass has taken to Twitter to confirm the news and put us all straight: “Regardless of what may have incorrectly reported about me, I would like to set the record straight: I loved my time on @loosewomen but it was only a summer contract and now I’m having some time off before I start some big & exciting projects this Autumn!…”
She went on to say that herself and her team tried to clear up the truth but they were ignored!
Earlier on in the week it was announced that Stacey Solomon, Lisa Riley and Martine McCutcheon will be joining the ITV show for the new series.
Vicky has certainly been a busy little bee as she’s been filming with Ferne McCann in the stunning Almafi Coast.
The hilarious besties, who met on I’m A Celeb filmed the show for the 20th anniversary of the cult film and the first segment was aired today.
