Vicky Pattison lived in hotel for 7 months
Vicky Pattison had to live in a hotel for seven months because she didn't have a house close to London.
Vicky Pattison spent seven months living in a hotel.
The 28-year-old beauty has admitted she has lived out of a suitcase in a flash establishment in London since she was crowned queen of the jungle on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' in December because her globe-trotting career meant she's never in one place for too long.
She explained: "I've been living in the Park Plaza Hotel in London for the past seven months since coming out of the jungle. I've done Dubai, Tokyo, Portugal, Tenerife, Italy - I've been all over. But that hotel was my home."
However, the former 'Geordie Shore' star - who was born and raised in Newcastle upon Tyne - recently bought a plush house in Essex after months of frantically searching for a home in the south.
She said: "I've moved into my place now and it's amazing. I am an honorary Essex girl. I don't miss Newcastle a lot. It'll always be my home - it's my heart."
And, although she misses her hometown, Vicky believes the move closer to the capital was vital because her career is excelling and she's at a different point in her life to her childhood friends.
She added to NOW magazine: "My friends and family all live there. But we're all at different stages. My friends are settling down and buying homes with their boyfriends whereas I'm going out until 4am on a Tuesday.
"If I go back and say, 'Girls, let's do a Wednesday night on the tiles.' They have to get up with the baby or they need to go to work or they're saving for a house deposit ... it's hard. I adore my friends but we're in different mind spaces so I was ready for the move."
