Just over a year ago UK reality star Vicky Pattison became a favourite on 10’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, in which she was looking forward to her pending nuptials (yep that’s the same gal in the photos).
But fast-forward to November and it was not to be.
But she was already committed to a TV special on the whole darn thing, so instead it has become something else altogether.
Later this month TLC screens a special Vicky Pattison: The Break Up.
TLC takes viewers behind the headlines for a raw look at heartbreak in Vicky Pattison: The Break Up premiering Monday 25 March. In November 2018, Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison’s world imploded when, after two years together, she split from fiancé John as pictures of him getting much too close to a number of mystery women in Dubai hit the tabloids. Due to be married this year the fairy tale wedding was called off.
Already signed up to film a TLC special, ‘Vicky and John Said Yes’, Vicky was confronted with the difficult decision of whether to carry on filming. With intimate access to her close circle of family and friends, this one-hour special follows Vicky in the aftermath of the split as, under the glare of the media spotlight, she tries to understand and come to terms with what’s happened and attempts to move on.
Vicky Pattison: The Break Up gives viewers an insight into the person behind the headlines, revealing her behind-the-scenes heartache as she puts on a brave face for the press – appearing live on breakfast TV and even as a special guest at a Body Confidence Event just days after the break-up and despite feeling anything but confident herself. With the support of her friends and especially her mum Caroll, experience the highs and lows in the immediate weeks after Vicky’s break-up as she attempts to re-evaluate her whole life plan from searching from a new home and going speed dating with Pete Wicks (The Only Way Is Essex) to distract herself, to confronting some dark thoughts head on while on a retreat in Portugal with her mum, and even seizing the controls of a light aircraft.
In Vicky Pattison: The Break Up, the vivacious Geordie Shore star and winner of I’m A Celebrity (UK) shows a rarely-seen vulnerable side to her personality, as we get an all-access look into her world.
Monday 25 March at 9:30pm on TLC.
