SACKED from Loose Women? Well, Vicky Pattison is NOT having it

If recent reports were to be believed, Vicky Pattison's past had officially come back to haunt her as she struggled to hold onto her position on Loose Women panel due to excessive partying.

With Vicky set to leave the show, insiders sent the rumourmill into overdrive as they hinted that Vicky just didn't have the work etiquette required to hold down the position on the popular afternoon show.

"She’s a real party animal and seemed much more focused on nights out, which could sometimes impact her commitment to the show." a source told The Sun.

"It’s a full time job and with her diary the way it is, Vicky was finding it increasingly hard to fit it in and devote her full attention to it," they added, and Vicky is not having it.

Taking to Twitter today, the former Geordie Shore star dismissed the allegations and insisted that her contract with the show had simply run its course.

"Regardless of what may have incorrectly reported about me, I would like to set the record straight: I've loved my time on @loosewomen but it was only a summer contract and now I'm having some time off before I start some big & exciting projects this Autumn," she told followers today.

"My relationship with all the @loosewomen, the team and @ITV is still great and we all tried to clarify the truth before this story was printed however we were ignored."

"Anyway, THANK YOU all for the sweet messages- and I'm sure I'll pop back to see the ladies again!" Vicky wrote before promoting a This Morning segment which she'll be appearing in alongside fellow reality star Ferne McCann.

So that's that, then.
