Vicky Pattison had a real tough time hosting I'm A Celebrity's spin-off show


Vicky Pattison has confessed she found it difficult hosting the I'm A Celebrity's spin-off show.

Vicky was one of four hosts on I'm A Celebrity's ITV2 Extra Camp show this year alongside Joe Swash, Stacey Solomon and Chris Ramsey.

But not all viewers took kindly to Vicky's style and she admitted the negative comments were tough to deal with.

Vicky said: "The less than positive reaction at the start made things more difficult for us."

Speaking to Nick Grimshaw on Radio 1, Vicky revealed she had support from celebrity pals but Twitter comments still got to her.

"You [Nick] were lovely, Caroline Flack was lovely, Ant and Dec were amazing, I was getting support from all the right places but at the same time I'd see one horrible Twitter thing and all my confidence would come crumbling down," she explained. "I started the show feeling so lucky and happy to be there and then I thought ' oh god tone it back'."

Vicky continued: "Then I sat down with Ant and he said: 'You won this last year, don't ever change' and I thought he's my fairy godmother and that's when I thought I'm going to do this my way and if you like it then great and if ye don't, turn off.

"Ant and Dec are just the nicest blokes, there's that saying 'don't meet your heroes' but they smash that."

Meanwhile, Vicky said that she found presenting the show far harder than actually being in the jungle.

"Live presenting is the most difficult thing I’ve ever had to do," Vicky declared. “I don’t think it’s any secret that at times I really, really struggled.

“I don’t know if people realise how difficult it is and how much pressure there is.

“You’ve got voices in your head, there’s someone counting down, there’s some reminding me what to say, there’s someone telling me to stop fiddling with my hair.”

I'm A Celebrity will return next year but whether or not Vicky will be back remains to be seen.
