Vicky Pattison might be well known for her ballsy on-screen persona, but the Queen of the Jungle revealed today that, just like everyone else, she can be her own worst critic.
According to Celebs Now, the former Geordie Shore cast member burst into tears as she shared with the Loose Women panel her battles with self-scutiny.
As part of this afternoon's show, Vicky had to listen back to a pre-recorded clip of herself as she voiced some of the negative thoughts she has about herself and, understandably, the experience was an emotional one for the reality star.
Vicky was reduced to tears as she heard herself saying: “What are you doing here? You’re not as good as everyone else.”
The tape also revealed how the Newcastle native compares herself to other women and tells herself she’s doomed to fail.
She said: “Look at them – everyone’s so clever and glamorous.”
“They’re thinking, ‘Who are you, what are you doing here?’”
“Just make it easier and go now. You’re gonna fail and everyone’s gonna laugh.”
Vicky went on to explain that she experiences such negative thoughts every day and admitted she tries hard to act like people’s comments don’t affect her but in reality they do.
She also confessed that her insecurities are only made worse by the comments she receives on social media.
She said: “People tear strips off the way you look, which is never nice. I get everything – people say I don’t deserve to be where I am because of my past.”
