Despite skyrocketing to fame on our screens, Vicky told OK!: “I’ve never watched myself back on TV.”
Vicky made the admission after starring on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins, which she ended up quitting.

Discussing her departure from the hit show, Vicky explained: “I was unprepared for it. It was incredibly tough and I was scared the whole time, so I was so pleased when I’d finished. It was so lush to get back home.
“I honestly don’t think the time to start [watching myself on TV] would be when I’m trying to get up a mountain on Celeb SAS!”
Viewers watched as the former Geordie Shore star called time son the tough military-inspired Channel 4 show after she found a challenge too much to endure.
Reflecting on her physically gruelling time during the show, the 34 year old explained on Instagram that she had “dreaded” the show airing as it was “physically the hardest thing she had done” and the “most emotionally difficult position I’ve ever put myself in.”
Vicky also opened up to OK! about how she struggles to find motivation to post on Instagram all the time.
The beauty has a whopping 4.8million Instagram followers, and she’s known for her very honest posts on her grid.
Vicky shared: “We’re all human and we all have down days and days we feel tired but I think we have to actually like break that stigma that we’re only allowed to post on Instagram when we feel a million dollars or look glam or your day is going really well.”
She continued: “The posts that get the most interaction of mine and that I always feel are the most important are the ones I do when I don’t feel like posting at all.
“Like, when I have my period or I’m hungover or I didn’t get a job. It’s so hard because you feel vulnerable and insecure, but actually when you open that dialogue you give other women the permission to do the same.
“Not every day is smiles and sun and candy floss, and some days are a bit crap. I absolutely have down days and days when I don’t post on Instagram.”
And despite finding fame on a show where she was seen going out a lot, Vicky explained to OK! that she’s swapped her wild ways from back in the day for “relaxed social atmospheres.”
Teaming up with the B by Black Tower range, Vicky spoke about why she champions their low ABV and low-calorie B by Black Tower White and Rosé wines.
“I’m never going to be a girl to go teetotal or cut out drink entirely because it’s a big part of how I enjoy myself and how me and Ercan relax or me and the girls socialise.
“But I love the fact that it’s lower alcohol. A glass of wine is quite high percentage so it’s nice to have a slightly lower alternative when you just fancy a couple and you’re not going mad.”
Vicky added: “I think how you drink as you get older completely changes, and I’ve gone from being someone who would drink in high volume at the weekends to someone who far prefers a really nice, relaxed social atmosphere.
“I love nothing more than to sit and have a lovely dinner with Ercan or a night in with the girls and share a bottle of wine. I’m far more of a chill social drinker now than I’ve ever been, I suppose that’s my age isn’t it? I’m getting older!”
The B by Black Tower White and Rosé are lower in alcohol with 5.5% vol and also lower in calories with just 55 calories per 125ml glass
