I’m A Celeb’s Vicky Pattison is ‘jealous’ of new cast despite winning show

I'm A Celebrity's Vicky Pattison has admitted that that she's "jealous" of the celebrities heading into the Australian jungle to take part in the ITV reality show despite winning the show four years ago.

The former Geordie Shore babe was crowned Queen of the Jungle in 2015 and went on to host the show's spin-off series I'm A Celeb: Extra Camp in 2016.

Ahead of the I'm A Celebrity launch tonight, Vicky, 32, has said that the jungle was a career highlight.

Writing in a column for Metro, Vicky penned: "It's so hard for me not to feel a teeny bit of jealousy of all the people heading into the jungle because, for me, I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! was the most amazing thing I've done in my career.

"If they embrace it, the adventure that this year's celebs are about to embark on is nothing short of life changing."

Vicky entered the Australian jungle in 2015 off the back of her time on the MTV reality show where she was known as the "Geordie girl with a VIP edge".

Speaking about her time on Geordie Shore, the brunette bombshell said: "I became a caricature of myself and I was keen to put that image behind me and show the nation that there was more to me than sl*t dropping and Jägerbombs.

"Unbeknownst to me at the time, when I walked into the jungle as a late arrival, social media exploded with comments like, 'Get her out,’ ‘She’s going to ruin it,’ and, ‘Oh god why have they put her in there?'"

Vicky admitted that one of her show highlights was meeting fellow Geordies Ant and Dec.

She revealed: "For me, as a Geordie, meeting Ant and Dec was a career highlight. People always say ‘don’t meet your heroes,’ but it gives me so much pleasure to announce, in this instance, that the sentiment is completely incorrect.

"They are amazing. Fun, friendly, supportive – just unbelievable balls of energy and the driving force behind the entire show.

As the new bunch of celebrities embark on their journey in the Australian jungle, Vicky advised the contestants to be themselves and to enjoy the experience.

She said: "My advice to this year's camp mates would be to relax and enjoy it.

"Feel the gravity of what you're actually doing and be grateful for the experience – because all too quickly it will be over and you'll be back at home watching it on the sofa, feeling more than a tinge of jealousy like me."
