Vicky Pattison steals the show on Sunday Brunch as she admits she needs a break after I'm A Celebrity win


Vicky Pattison said she is in desperate need of a break from fame - so that the British public don't get sick of the seeing her.

The former Geordie Shore star said her whirlwind lifestyle has left her feeling exhausted since she was crowned Queen of the Jungle on I'm A Celebrity last year.

Appearing on Channel 4´s Sunday Brunch, she said: "It's almost been a year, and it feels like my feet haven't touched the ground at all.

"I feel very fortunate, very lucky, very tired.

"I do sort of need a bit of time off just to chill out I think, otherwise I am running the risk of everyone being sick of the sight of us!"

Asked by hosts Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer if she ever said no to opportunities, the 28-year-old admitted: "I can't believe my luck the way things have changed within the past year, and I get worried that it could almost fade as quickly as it came.

"So I say yes to everything and I run myself ragged... because I feel if I say no to something, they might not ask us again."

Despite signing up to appear more regularly as a panellist on Loose Women, Vicky said she's planning to take some time out.

She said: "I think sometimes I do need to spend time for myself, stop and smell the roses and spend some time with my family.

"That's what I am trying to work on at the minute, taking some time for me."

Having arrived at the studio after a very late night out, a hungover Vicky got stuck in helped the crew cook in the studio but she struggled with the concept of separating an egg.

Instead of putting three whole eggs and one yolk in the bowl, Vicky added the unbroken egg - shell and all. Perhaps she does need a little more sleep!

Her whole appearance, including a struggle to eat a chicken wing, was loved by viewers and best pal Ferne McCann.
