Former I’m a Celebrity…Get Me out of Here! winner and fitness fan Vicky Pattison claims she’s recently piled on the pounds and it’s “getting [her] down”.
The TV star, 31, shared a make-up free selfie with her 4.3 million Instagram followers and offered an essay-length caption in which she admitted to putting on weight and often feeling inadequate.
Her candid post’s caption included: “I’m lonely, I’ve gained weight recently and it’s getting me down no matter how much I pretend I’m ok with it.”
And she went on to explain that she was so nervous about attending the upcoming TV BAFTAS that she has been ‘sleep eating’, explaining: “I’m overwhelmed in the world I’m in, I ate Doritos last night in my sleep (yes I sleep eat). I miss my mam, I’m sick of living out of a suitcase, I’m drowning in these thoughts and I don’t feel inspirational.”
The Sun then claimed, quoting an unnamed source, that Vicky suffers from NS-RED (nocturnal sleep-related eating disorder) and has been officially diagnosed with the condition.
But speaking to ED!, a rep for the former Georgie Shore star clarified that reports about Vicky having a rare eating disorder are totally “inaccurate”.
They said: “This story is totally and utterly inaccurate and is based entirely on Vicky’s throwaway line in Instagram that she had eaten Doritos in her sleep.
“It’s just irresponsible […] and totally untrue.”
Vicky shot to fame when she first appeared in reality show Geordie Shore in 2011.
The pressures of the limelight saw her go from a size 10 up to a size 16, only to then slim down to a size eight.
She attributed her weight loss transformation to her new passion for fitness.
And she even has her own exercise DVD, Vicky Pattison’s 7 Day Slim.
