Early Life

Born on November 16th 1987, Vicky Pattison got a degree in Drama from Liverpool John Moores University.

After graduating, the Newcastle born star had various roles before landing a job on MTV’s Geordie Shore.

Vicky worked in telesales and on the doors of Newcastle clubs, before auditioning for the reality series - where she was catapulted to fame.

Geordie Shore & beyond

In 2011, off the back of similar reality series The Only Way is Essex and Made in Chelsea, Geordie Shore was born, with Vicky picked from hundreds of hopefuls to make the original cast of the show.

Upon entering the house, it was clear Vicky was somewhat the ringleader of the girls, and also popular with the lads too.

She was a loud and outspoken housemate, who didn’t hesitate to get her voice heard.

In 2013, Vicky and fellow housemate Holly Hagan were arrested on suspicion of assaulting a model, whilst filming series 7 of Geordie Shore. Because of this filming for the rest of the series was suspended.

Vicky was found guilty of assaulting Hannah Kelso, who needed four stitches, at the Newcastle bar. She was ordered to pay compensation and do 180 hours of community service.

Vicky starred on the series for three years until 2014, when she left to pursue other projects.

From that year, Vicky starred on reality series Ex on the Beach, where people are taken to a tropical island and surprised by their ex boyfriends and girlfriends - with drama ensuing.

Vicky also writes a magazine column, and presented and starred in her own MTV show Judge Geordie - where she sorts out feuds and relationship problems.

She has released two novels and an autobiography ‘Nothing But The Truth.’


When Vicky entered the Geordie Shore house, she quickly stuck out a romance with Jay Gardner - though this was relatively short-lived. After a few episodes the romance wound down, and the next series Vicky returned claiming she was super loved up with new boyfriend Dan (not in the house).

However, after the entrance of Ricci Guarnaccio, Vicky’s head was turned, and the pair became an item.

In 2012, the couple got engaged whilst filming in Mexico, though they split in 2013 after a series of blazing rows, with Vicky calling her ex ‘controlling’ and ‘aggressive.’

Shortly after her split from Ricci, Vicky jetted off to Australia for a Geordie Shore special, and it wasn’t long before she caught they eye of personal trainer Dan Conn.

Dating for the time she was over there, Vicky has since been reunited with her hunky former flame on Ex on the Beach, admitting that he will always be the ‘one that got away.’

In 2014, Vicky seemed super loved up with Ice Hockey player James Morgan, but that relationship crumbled by the end of the year over alleged fears from Vicky that her career was suffering.

Other men who have had a thing for Vicky include Kirk Norcross, Charlie Sims and Mario Falcone - who apparently sent the star a string of flirtatious messages.

In 2015, the brunette beauty went on a string of dates with her Ex on the Beach co-star Stephen Bear, breaking a self imposed sex ban from earlier in the year. However, by the autumn it was all over - with the pair getting pretty nasty in the wake of the split.

Pattison went so far as to say he was the 'vilest person I've ever met,' and said her soul was being 'destroyed by men.'

Weight loss

Vicky had always been slim throughout her Geordie Shore days, but after she split from fiancé Ricci in 2013, she admitted she turned to food as a comfort.

Piling on the pounds, the star was left devastated when images of her on the beach emerged - her new size 16 figure on full show.

Embarking on a weight-loss mission, Vicky shed 3 stone by the end of the year, showing off her new svelte size 6-8 figure months later.

As a result, Vicky released her own weight loss and diet plan Mini V nutrition, and has a DVD - Vicky's 7 Day Slim.
