Vicky Pattinson lost weight through a strict diet and exercise routine and now the I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! star credits her new healthy figure for getting her through her time in the jungle.

Talking to The Sun, Vicky said: "My career really did change an awful lot when I lost weight. I just didn’t get the opportunities I got when I was bigger. It has taken a long time for people to want me.

“Everything changed when I lost weight. I changed and I got my confidence back."

"I don’t think I would have done the jungle when I was bigger. I couldn’t have done the challenges and fit through the tubes," the reality TV beauty candidly commented.

“You have to be physically fit and strong for those challenges. It is demanding. If you are bigger you can’t do it."

While she may have impressed viewers with her jungle shower scenes, the Geordie Shore star admitted to not being comfortable with taking a shower in the jungle.

"I was not looking forward to it so I had secret washes at the dunny to try to avoid it for as long as I could. Then I thought I would just embrace it and get it out of the way. I tried to remember Myleene Klass when she was in the show and was giving my best Herbal Essences impression. Then I got soap in my eye, an eyelash in my eye and dropped the soap!

“I was like, ‘For f***’s sake, I’m not sexy and it’s fine’.

“Humour can be sexy and that’s what I’m sticking to. I don’t see myself as sexy at all. I’m just a big goofball. People have seen that side of me. I just think I’m a girl’s girl.”
