Vicky Pattison quits Loose Women
Vicky Pattison has quit 'Loose Women'.
The 28-year-old beauty only joined the popular lunchtime panel show nine months ago but she has now decided to turn her back on the ITV programme in order to explore other things.
Taking to her Twitter account on Wednesday (07.09.16), the outspoken reality TV star wrote: "I've loved my time on @loosewomen but ... It was only a summer contract and now I'm having some time off before I start some big & exciting projects this Autumn! My relationship with all the @loosewomen, the team and @ITV is still great ... I'm sure I'll pop back to see the ladies again! (sic)"
Although Vicky is remaining tight lipped on the projects she's got coming up, she recently confirmed she's been in talks with ITV bosses about the possibility of hosting the spin-off show 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! NOW!'.
The former 'Geordie Shore' star - who won the last series of the main show 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' in December - said recently: "I would snatch their hands off, I really would [if I was offered the role]. There have been names thrown around. There are talks but nothing is confirmed."
However, if Vicky does get the gig Down Under, the news will unlikely sit well with her former 'Loose Women' panellist Katie Price as the former glamour model is keen to helm the programme alongside her ex-husband Peter Andre.
The 38-year-old star - who met and fell in love with Peter when they were competing on the main show in 2004 - took to her Twitter account recently to write: "I would sooo present this how cool if me and Pete did it. (sic)"
Meanwhile, bosses' frantic search for a new host comes after Laura Whitmore - who had fronted the late-night chatty programme since 2011 - announced earlier this year that she is turning her back on the programme after five "incredible years" at the helm in order to spread her wings.
