I was always so worried about getting older- especially over 30 for some reason- I suppose it just felt like a very substantial milestone. I was worried about wrinkles, about it getting harder to lose weight & easier to put it on, about my boobs giving up the will to live & settling round my belly button like 2 dejected half filled condoms, I was scared about taking longer to get over a night on the lash than if I’d had minor surgery- & I remember being petrified of the thought that one day I would actually prefer a night in over a night out! (oh the horror!) But you know what I didn’t anticipate?! The wonderful feeling of self acceptance that I developed. I used to be terrified of what people thought of me, of how I looked & being judged. As I’ve got older though, I started to care a lot less, I started to accept myself a lot more, embrace my imperfections. Look at this 1st picture.. No makeup on, crows feet, a little spot on my chin, no hair extensions & a goofy little look on my boat 😂 But I am so happy & content 😍 I know I’m not perfect but that is fine- we really aren’t meant to be. But I would NEVER have posted this image in my twenties. The 2nd image is something I posted 5 years ago- full face of slap, full head of hair extensions, filtered to death, ridiculous duck pout & an all together ‘please find me attractive or sexy’ pose & all this just before bed! So contrived, such effort- just exhausting 😂😩 I hinged so much of my self worth on my looks, my image & what people thought about me that I was never going to be happy. If you live for people’s acceptance, ultimately you will die inside at their rejection. But now, this feeling of contentment, of owning who I am, my looks, my character, it is the most liberating feeling- & because I’m not agonising over the most superficial things I’m focusing on stuff that really matters- being honest, kind, trying to motivate or inspire, laughing, making people love themselves. In my 20’s I was so wracked with insecurities & afraid of getting older- but quite frankly my 30’s I’ve learned to say ‘THIS IS ME TAKE ME OR LEAVE ME’ and it feels Great! When you accept yourself, the Whole world accepts you.

Vicky Pattison Age: Wild Child Days

Her first role- on reality show Geordie Shore, based in her home city of Newcastle Upon Tyne- thrust her directly in to the spotlight. And not in a positive light..

At just 23 when she joined the show, the peak of her wild child, party girl days were played out for us all to see. Gaining quite a rep from her antics, Vicky was known as the brash, outspoken and crude Geordie lass who drank herself in to oblivion for others’ entertainment.

After three years of partying and deathly hangovers, she decided to leave the show. In 2014, Vicky packed her bags and turned her back on the show that had famed her.

Outgrown

Thew 31-year-old revealed that her decision to leave was down to a number of things, but the breaking point was (surprisingly) when she was banned from reading a book. Producers were outraged when they spotted her participating in a hobby that didn’t involve booze:

“Vicky, where did you get your book from?”

When Vicky sarcastically responded with the shop she bought it from, the producer bit back:

“What are you doing? You can’t read a book, it’s not on-brand.”

That was apparently the breaking point for Pattison, because although she was in there to party and make a fool of herself, she still remained a well-educated, eager to learn 23-year-old beneath it all.

“All I wanted was to lie there with my face mask on, in a room where I could see the floor and read my book. I think it was about Russia and the Second World War from the Russian perspective.”

“I just wanted to grow up and move on.”

Leaving the show was arguably the best thing Vicky could have done for her career, in order to be taken seriously by the business the wanted to get in to. That for her, was presenting. And since leaving, she’s certainly ticked a few presenting roles off the bucket list…

Vicky Pattison Age: A Fresh Start

At just 31, Vicky has cumulated an impressive resume of jobs, which have worked to keep her current and in the spotlight. She’s also got a major presence on Instagram, with 4.4 million followers, who she shares the ins and outs of her life with.

Her honesty and transparency is undeniably the reason Vicky has accumulated such a large following- sharing everything from her mental health and body image struggles, to raw hungover videos (some things never change).

But that’s what the audience likes- her ability to hold down such a successful career in the media, whilst still remaining true to herself; something we all aspire to do!

Won The Public’s Vote Back

The ex Geordie Shore star’s first appearance out of the house, was on another of MTV’s shows- Ex On The Beach in 2014- joining the endless list of reality stars that have made an appearance out of that famous water, including Megan Mckenna.

She then found herself as the winner of the fifteenth series of I’m A Celebrity in 2015, just the year after quitting Geordie Shore. After the public saw a different side to Vicky, it was clear she was destined for big things.

The jobs came flooding in, from work on the This Morning sofa, to the Loose Women panel, acting as a judge on her own MTV show Judge Geordie, to now having the cameras follow her for her own reality show- Vicky Pattison: No Filter. She’s come full circle…

This is a picture of me the morning that I had to collect my results from the fertility clinic. I am usually quite a strong, together woman- but on that morning I felt like a scared little girl. Tormented by the possibility that my childish decisions over the years may have stopped me from being able to have a baby. Until recently motherhood has not been something that I considered- it wasn’t a role I wanted to play. But since turning 30 & almost getting married- since feeling like I was maturing as a person the desire to become a mother is something that has grown inside me & even though my circumstances changed- I couldn’t turn off that feeling. Something has awoken inside of me & it’s impossible to ignore. I have lived a life of excess- there’s no hiding from that- my most prolific partying days were well recorded & broadcasted for all to see on @mtvuk- I’ve slut dropped & down jäger all over the world for people’s viewing pleasure & I have never once considered the ramifications of my lifestyle long term & in this moment, when this picture was taken- I hated myself, for being selfish, reckless & lacking the maturity to see that I could be causing great emotional distress for myself in the future. In this moment, I was all too aware of the possible consequences. Since getting my results I have endeavoured to live a healthier lifestyle, sure I still like a drink here & there- I’m not completely turning my back on gin- but this experience was a wake up call. If I want to have children I need to start looking after myself so I’ve been trying to sleep better (unsuccessfully so far but I’m working on it 😂😩) eat well & be more active.. It might look like I’ve been a proper work shy toerag this last month doing yoga in Bali & hiking in cyprus but quite frankly I’ve been trying to come to terms with the changes I need to make in my life. I don’t know for definite if motherhood is in my stars- I’d like it to be but we’ll just have to see- but what I do know is that beating myself up over my past won’t help me conceive- so I am going to stop & take control of my present & project positivity for my future. Vicky Pattison: No Filter @ 10pm on @quest_red tonight.
