Vicky Pattison Breaks Down In Tears As She Discusses Dad’s Battle With Alcoholism
The Geordie lass is currently appearing on the Australian version of I'm A Celeb.
Vicky Pattison has opened up about her dad’s experience with alcoholism after entering the Australian version of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
The former Geordie Shore lass won the UK version of the show back in 2015 and recently decided to put the brakes on her wedding to John Noble to give those bushtucker trials another go in the South African camp.
Let's get checking out a bunch of the Geordie lasses' sauciest selfies over the years...
Having listened to Australian comic Fiona O'Loughlin opening up about being a recovering alcoholic on the series, Vicky burst into tears and came forward with some insight into her own family’s experience.
"You hear such horror stories about alcoholism and I see it with my own eyes," she said.
"You wonder, ‘Is this person ever going to get any better?’ and, ‘Am I going to end up the same?’ or, ‘Is my dad ever going to turn his life around and be the bloke I used to know he was?’” she continued.
Getting candid about how tough the situation can be on everyone, Vicky added: “It's me mam I feel sorry for. And him. I want him to have a better life. It feels so good to know there’s another side of it possibly for my dad.
"You ask yourself why. As a kid I asked myself, ‘Was I a bad kid, did I drive him to it, why doesn’t he love me enough to stop?’”
Props to Vicky for opening up about her experiences, and we're wishing her all the best of luck on the Aussie series.
