Vicky Pattison Sets The Record Straight Over Being ‘Axed’ From Loose Women
Vicky Pattison has taken to Twitter to set the record straight on new reports that she was ‘axed’ from her spot on the Loose Women panel.
The former Geordie Shore babe has been entertaining us with her honest, straight-talking opinions on the ITV show for three months, after her I'm A Celebrity win led to her joining the team.
Various reports have now emerged though, alleging that the hilarious Geordie was 'axed' from the show because bosses were ‘concerned’ about her 'partying'.
A source claimed to The Sun: “She’s a real party animal and seemed much more focused on nights out, which could sometimes impact her commitment to the show. It’s a real shame because this was a huge opportunity for her to use her popularity from I’m A Celebrity to develop a career.”
Another source 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. She has also had to prioritise her work and had had so many exciting offers come in that she has made the decision to stand down from the show for now to pursue other paths.
"She would love to return at some point in the future and the producers have assured her that the door is always open."
However, Vicky has since taken to Twitter to explain EXACTLY what’s going on, hitting back at rumours that she was ‘axed’ and revealing that actually, she was only contracted for the summer anyway.
She wrote: “Regardless of what may have incorrectly reported about me, I would like to set the record straight: I've 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!
“My relationship with all the @loosewomen, the team and @ITV is still great and we all tried to clarify the truth before this story was printed. However we were ignored!!!
“Anyway, THANKYOU all for the sweet messages - and I’m sure I’ll pop back to see the ladies again! Love”.
Four for you, Vicky. You tell 'em, Vicky.
The TV royalty added that fans will still be able to see her every Tuesday on This Morning, when her Amalfi Coast adventure with Ferne McCann continues.
We're really going to miss Vicky on Loose Women, but we're seriously excited to see what she does next!
