Vicky Pattison dumped by Spencer Matthews over accent
Vicky Pattison claims Spencer Matthews dumped her because he couldn't understand her accent.
The 28-year-old reality star - who met Spencer on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' - revealed she deliberately exaggerated her Newcastle tones after the hunky Londoner failed to see the funny side of her joke comparing the northern town of St Helen's to his fancy Caribbean residence, and as a result the pair never ended up going on a second date.
In an extract from her autobiography, 'Nothing but the Truth', she revealed: "He tried to chat me up over Twitter and then he sent me a happy Christmas message. That led to him calling and telling me he was in, 'Some God-awful hotel waiting for his flight to the Caribbean'. I was sat in a bedsit in Dunfermline waiting to do a press appearance.
"He said he was spending New Year in St Bart's and I replied, 'That's funny, because I'll be in St Helen's!' I had thought I was being funny, comparing the Wigan nightspot and my next club PA location to his luxury Caribbean hideaway, but unfortunately it didn't go down well. I knew it was game over so I thought it would be funny to completely exaggerate my Geordie accent. He couldn't understand a bloody word I was saying and he made his excuses and hung up. Funnily enough we didn't go on a date."
The pair went on a date together last month after the former 'Made in Chelsea' star sent her 100 red roses for Valentine's Day, but it seems their whirlwind romance has come to an end.
Vicky previously said: "It's weird because I've got a lot of time for him, but I'm not sure how much we have in common. I'm not his usual type, put it that way! You never know what may happen in the future and I'm not totally ruling out a romance just yet."
