Vicky Pattison split from Mario Falcone as he was 'high maintenance'
Vicky Pattison split from Mario Falcone because he was too "high maintenance" and was like "the girl" in the relationship.
The stunning brunette was rumoured to be dating the former TOWIE star following a string of cosy dinners which went back to April.
And now the former Geordie Shore star has spoken about the real reason why their brief romance didn't work out, Mario was too needy.
Speaking as a panellist on 'Loose Women' on Wednesday (29.06.16), Vicky, 28, said: "Mario was very sweet but I suppose he was more like the girl in the relationship."
The former 'Geordie Shore' star also revealed that Mario, 28, would bombard her with texts and would always be telling her that he was missing her.
She added: "He would text and say he missed me and I was really busy, and I suppose I just had to concede that, yes, I am."
Vicky - who was crowned Queen of the Jungle on the 2015 series of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! - has seen her career go from strength-to-strength over the last six months.
She told the all-female gossip panel she wants to be "adored", isn't ashamed of her success and expects others to invest as much in a relationship.
She said: "I just think, I'm bringing a lot to the table as you are as women, and most women out there, and why shouldn't my needs be met? So if that means I'm high maintenance then I don't care ... I think I demand an awful lot from the people I'm with. I want respect, I want an equal, I want someone who can match us. I want to be adored and appreciated and why not?"
Vicky is currently single but has admitted to being "totally head over heels in love" with Alex Cannon, who is currently in the 'Big Brother house.
They first met when the pair worked together on 'Judge Geordie'.
