We hope things won't be awkward between the Geordie girls...
While this year’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here is in FULL swing, so is I’m A Celeb’s spin off show Extra Camp.
Alongside Stacey Solomon, Chris Ramsey and Joe Swash, Vicky Patterson – and former Queen of The Jungle – is presenting the show.
Her career began after she appeared on the reality show Geordie Shore, and has since had an impressive number of television presenting and panellist jobs on her résumé, including Loose Women and Ex On The Beach.
Despite her ah-mazing experience, fellow Geordie Shore co-star Marnie Simpson had a little bit of criticism for Vicky’s on-camera skills.
In her column for Star Magazine, Marnie wrote, ‘I’ve heard that Vicky Pattison is getting stick for her presenting role on I’m A Celebrity… Extra Camp,
‘It’s funny because this is the first time Vicky’s actually been bad at something.’
Is that the sound of a backhanded compliment we hear?!
We can’t deny that Twitter users have been VERY vocal about their thoughts on Vicky’s presenting, with many being kinda negative.
One user tweeted, ‘Vicky is uncomfortable viewing’ while another wrote, ‘she’s getting worse EVERY NIGHT’.
Vicky has been famously criticised in the past for ‘gurning’ while presenting, but Vicky has defended herself and revealed to OK magazine that it’s something her jaw has always done but also admitted it gets worse when she drinks alcohol, stating ‘My jaw movement is something that I’ve always done.
‘I did it in the jungle and I got stick for it.
‘It gets worse when I drink and I didn’t drink once in the jungle, yet people were still questioning it.’
Poor Vicky 🙁
In her column, Marnie even went as far to say she could see herself filling Vicky’s shoes – a bit cheeky!
She wrote, ‘I’m considering giving presenting a go… I’d like to do BBBOTS.’
While we’re sure Marnie would be a hilarious presenter, we’re not sure there’s any need to drag Vicky in the process!
