It’s been revealed that Vicky Pattison has been axed from Loose Women after stating her career is too busy to commit full time to the show.
The Queen of the Jungle is being lined up to land the hosting role on I’m A Celebrity’s ITV2 spin-off show.
The Sun claims that Loose Women bosses have chose to get rid of the Geordie Shore lass after ‘wild partying’.
“She’s a real party animal and seemed much more focused on nights out, which could sometimes impact her commitment to the show,” its source said.
“It’s a real shame because this was a huge opportunity for her to use her popularity from I’m A Celebrity to develop a career.”
But Vicky’s spokesperson has denied that she was dropped – and hinted she’s actually moving on to bigger and better things.
“Vicky was only ever contracted to Loose Women until the end of August,” her rep told the Daily Star.
“She has some hugely exciting projects coming up, which have made it impossible for her to carry on as a panellist for now.”
Vicky won the jungle reality show last year and is one of the hot favourites to replace Laura Whitmore, even confirming herself she’s been in talks with show producers.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! returns to ITV in the Autumn.
