Vicky Pattison denies reports she was axed from Loose Women: 'It was only a summer contract'

Vicky Pattison has shot down reports speculating that she was fired from Loose Women for partying too hard and not being committed to the show.

The TV star denied the claims, saying she wanted to set the record straight.

The 28-year-old I’m A Celebrity winner said her stint on the ITV show was “only a summer contract” and she now has other projects lined up for the autumn – but hopes to pop back from time to time as a guest.

She said:

A spokesman for Loose Women said: “Vicky is still part of the Loose Women family. It’s just due to busy schedules this autumn there are no current dates booked in.”

This leaves the door open for Vicky to return, but in the meantime she is certainly busy – filming her travels with her friend from the jungle Ferne McCann for a segment on This Morning, and serving as a team captain for Channel 5 panel show It’s Not Me, It’s You.
