Vicky Pattison says she quit 'Loose Women' after just nine months because she felt inadequate
Vicky Pattison quit 'Loose Women' because she felt inadequate.
The 'Geordie Shore' star joined the panel of the daytime ITV show last year, after her success on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' made her a household name, but Vicky admitted she left just nine months later because she felt out of her depth.
She told Bella magazine: "Being offered the show was a huge achievement.
"Everyone's so lovely, so professional, with a wealth of experience. It just highlighted my lack of experience and naivety.
"A lot of the topics they discussed on the show - marriage, divorce, hardcore feminism, kids - loads of housewives and women can relate to that, but I found myself coming up short quite a lot.
"I'm not going to do something I'm not good at. I felt inadequate, and I don't want to feel like that. I want to give it 110 per cent.
"I'd love to go back, but at the moment, I'm happy as it is."
However, while she may have left the show abruptly, Vicky, 29, has remained close to the other panellists.
She said: "I keep in touch with most of them. Love Ruth Langsford, love Coleen Nolan , love Stacey Solomon.
""Me and [fiancé] John [Noble] had a double date with Stacey and her boyfriend Joe Swash at Wimbledon recently and had a lovely time."
