Vicky Pattison talks to new about growing up, finding love at last and celebrating the women in her life
ANNA BAILEY

Former Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison is living her best life right now. Not only has she conquered reality TV as the queen of the jungle and a Celebrity MasterChef finalist and dabbled in presenting on This Morning and Loose Women, but she’s also finally found love with hunky Ercan Ramadan.

“I love the bones of him and it’s a great dynamic we’ve got,” she says of the former TOWIE star when we have a catch-up.

Now the busy 32-year-old is making a foray into fashion, launching a new range of bags with luxury brand LRM. Each bag is based on the special women in her life, including her mum and sister Laura, who Vicky says she’s closer to than ever.

“When Laura had [her daughter] Maisie, she said, ‘I’m never having another kid!’ Now eight months on, she’s like, ‘I’d love for her to have a sister and for their relationship to be like ours.’ It’s lovely,” says Vicky.

Here, the star also talks about how she’s moved on from her raucous reality roots and her thoughts on starting a family…

Hi, Vicky! Things look like they’re going great with Ercan – how is it different this time?

The thing with Ercan is, when he walks into a room everyone doesn’t have to know his name and he doesn’t demand everyone to notice him. But by the time he walks out, everyone will know who he is and everyone will like him. He’s a blinding guy and I feel very lucky.

Does it help you’re both from a real background?

Poor Ercan, bless him, I don’t think he was ever cut out for reality TV. I say that with the utmost respect. I think he’s too nice. You have to have a bit of edge to you and he’s not got that edge – he’s circle-shaped! He’s so lovely and kind and a little bit too trusting.
