’15 years ago. That used to mean I was a kid. Not now no.. I was an adult. A rubbish, immature one.. but an adult nonetheless. WTF’

Just five years after it was taken, Vicky would shoot to fame on the first series of Geordie Shore in 2011, staying until 2014.
She then won I’m A Celebrity… and presented her own show Judge Geordie in 2015 before becoming a regular Loose Woman until 2019.
That same year she found love with Ercan Ramadan, 29, a builder, and the couple got engaged in 2022.
Earlier this year she appeared in Pilgrimage, a television series following celebrities from different faiths trekking together as a group.
Vicky’s group journeyed to Fatima Way, in Portugal, where the Virgin Mary was reportedly spotted several times in 1917.
Of her experience, Vicky said: ‘The journey affected me in a profound way I didn’t anticipate. I cried [during filming] because I felt like I was missing out on something to truly believe in.’
Earlier on Thursday, Vicky opened up about her struggles with PMDD, a severe form of PMS, revealing that it left her with suicidal thoughts.
Vicky diagnosed with premenstrual dysphoric disorder earlier this year and revealed that the condition left her suffering from a ‘constant cycle’ of despair at certain periods of the month.
Speaking on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, she said: ‘Honestly, the best way I’ve ever heard it described is that PMDD is like building a sand castle of good habits, great relationships positive habits, going for morning runs, drinking green juice giving birth to an avocado, whatever it is.
‘And then every month, a wave comes and takes away all those things and leaves only hopelessness and despair.
‘It’s this constant cycle. It was despair, hopelessness, overwhelm, chronic fatigue, crippling anxiety, and – in some darker moments – suicidal thoughts.’
