'Loose Women': Vicky Pattison Reveals The Real Reason She Left The ITV Show

She spent less than six months on the panel of the ITV daytime show.

Vicky Pattison has opened up about her decision to leave ‘Loose Women’, after just six months on the panel. 

The ‘I’m A Celebrity’ winner stepped down from her role on the ITV daytime show last year, and has now claimed she felt like she was too young to offer good opinions as a panellist.

Speaking on ‘Lorraine’, Vicky said: “I can’t thank the ‘Loose Women’ team and everybody at ITV enough for giving me such an amazing opportunity, but for me, I think I tried to run before I could walk.

“I think there were maybe certain things that were discussed and certain debates that we’d have, and I’d be desperate to get involved but I’d feel a little bit like, ‘I really don’t have an opinion on this’.

“It was marriage, and it was kids. At the time, I couldn’t even get a lad to text me back.”

After leaving the series last September, Vicky was forced to clear up rumours producers had axed her from the line-up over her partying ways.

She insisted she had only ever signed a contract to appear over the summer period, and teased other “exciting projects”, which eventually turned out to be her role hosting ‘I’m A Celebrity’ spin-off ‘Extra Camp’. 

Vicky faced criticism for her presenting skills on the ITV2 show, and later admitted the negative response had a negative effect on her . 

Speaking to the Daily Star, she described presenting the show as “the hardest thing I’ve ever done”.

‘Lorraine’ airs weekdays at 8.30am on ITV.
