‘I think everyone assumed that I was riding high and having a good time and I was, but I felt so undeserving, like imposter syndrome,’ she said. 

‘When I came out I struggled and I thought I’m going to ruin it if I’m not careful.

‘It’s easy to blame my complicated relationship with alcohol on Geordie shore but that wasn’t true, I had an underlying problem.’

Vicky – who shot to fame on MTV reality show Geordie Shore which is about hard-drinking Newcastle natives – revealed that her mum, Caroll, found watching the show difficult.  

‘She said that she found the whole experience difficult, she said she didn’t recognise the person I had become,’ Vicky added of her mother. 

‘She watched her bright daughter become with almost caricature of herself.’

It comes as Vicky said she no longer reaches for a drink to calm her nerves – and she has credited her fiancé Ercan Ramadan with helping her.

She told the Mirror: ‘If we had met 10 years younger, we just wouldn’t have worked at all, I probably would’ve thought he was boring. But he’s exactly what I need, he provides me with a sense of calm.’ 

Vicky claims she drinks because she is ‘neurotic’, adding that she’s ‘nervous all the time’.

She said: ‘When I have a drink, that relaxes me and that was all I’d ever found that calmed me down – until Ercan. He makes it feel like it’s OK to be totally myself.’

Vicky confirmed she is set to tie the knot with her partner after he got down on one knee during a sunset proposal in Dubai in February. 

Vicky Pattison: My Dad, Alcohol and Me will air on Tuesday 2 August on Channel 4 at 10pm.
