Former Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison is reportedly the first celeb to sign up to E4’s brand new show All Star Driving Test.

The show will see famous faces take part in an intensive course and learn to drive in just seven days.

And it looks like the Geordie lass could be the first celeb to get behind the wheel.

A source for the show revealed to The Sun: “Contestants will be put through an intensive course like nothing seen before.

“There will be all sorts involved, from three-point turns to rally driving and off-roading in 4x4s.

“But it’s not just driving, as producers want it to be really wacky and light-hearted.

“The stars will face safety tests that involve canyon swinging and navigation challenges where they will be left in the woods in the middle of the night and forced to make their way home.”

They added: “If they do well they will be given treats at the end of the day, including meals and spa treatments.

“But if their driving isn’t up to scratch, they will face a forfeit such as changing a tyre with a grumpy mechanic.”

The 29-year-old is said to be receiving £5,000 and a brand new Suzuki Ignis, which will be hers to drive for six months, for taking part in the show.

This comes after the reality star was reportedly “fired” from hosting the new version of Blind Date.

The game show revamp is set to return to our screens on June 17.

It has now been confirmed that Paul O’Grady will host the Channel 5 show and Mel Skyes will provide the voiceover for the dating show.

In a series of clips on Instagram Vicky addressed the rumours that she’d been “sacked”.

She said: “I was in talks to host the show in some way at some point.

“However that was back when it was going to be a Friday night reboot, post watershed, wild and crazy for young audiences.

“It’s since had a massive scheduling change and it’s going to be pre-watershed.”

“I’m sure you will all agree that in that time slot it’s completely 100 per cent better suited to fantastic professional presenters like Mel and Paul.

“All I have to say about that now is in my heart of hearts, I know the right people got the job.

“Mel and Paul will smash it, especially at the time the show is on, for that audience and being the consummate professionals that they are,” she added.
