Geordie Shore’s Vicky Pattison has spoken out about how she considered committing suicide after her arrest for assault in 2013.
There were allegations made that she and her co-star Holly Hagan had attacked a model during a night out in Newcastle, and Vicky was charged with two counts of assault. She pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 180 hours of unpaid community service.
The reality star has spoken out about the ordeal in her new book Nothing But The Truth, saying:
“I was so down in the weeks that followed I genuinely contemplated killing myself at times…
“I am dramatic about things when it comes to love or my mates, but I had never in my life before suffered from serious depression or considered suicide.
“I felt like all I was doing was messing up and embarrassing my family. I had lost everything I had going for me and I didn't want to live any more. I couldn't see any other way out.”
However, the star got help from her sister and psychiatrist, and thankfully, got back on her feet:
“It was that fighting instinct in me, and my amazing sister and friend who got me through that made me realise that I would achieve nothing by killing myself. I would have left the only people who cared about me heartbroken.”
