Vicky Pattison says she is trying to tidy up her ballsy image and be a better role model for young girls who watch 'Geordie Shore'
Vicky Pattison is trying to be a better role model for young girls.
The 26-year-old star - who is known for her partying and no-nonsense attitude on reality TV series 'Geordie Shore' - has admitted she's trying to set a good example for her young fans who look up to her.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: "I know I'm starting to become more aware of young girls tweeting me saying I'm an inspiration. They find my weight loss inspirational, they find how strong I am ... but it's a big responsibility.
"Whether you want to accept that or not, I do strive to behave in a good way most of the time."
The brunette beauty confessed that despite trying her best to be a good role model, she feels herself and other celebrities are unfairly expected to do so.
She explained: "I think Miley Cyrus, Rihanna and reality TV stars in the UK or America, we didn't set out to be role models, we set out to do things we enjoy and Miley Cyrus is quite clearly having a good time, as is Rihanna, as are all of us.
"Some people have that role thrust upon them when they don't really want it, and it's tough."
Vicky's new show 'Ex on the Beach' airs on Tuesdays on MTV.
