Vicky Pattison has spent the last decade “desperately” trying to reverse people’s perception of her, but is done saying sorry.

The Newcastle native rose to fame as one of the Geordie Shore originals, and while she wasn’t as wild as some of her co-stars, Vicky still got a reputation from being on the MTV series.

Since quitting the show in 2014, the university-educated star has forged a successful TV career and has worked hard to distance herself from her television beginnings.

"I made mistakes when I was new to the industry, compromising a lot of myself and my strength of character to be what I thought I needed to be to get on,” the 32-year-old said to OK! magazine. "I've spent the past 10 years trying desperately to reverse certain things I did and show people the real me, but I'm not going to apologise anymore.

“I'm really proud of the woman I'm becoming and if people can't let go of that image of who I used to be then that's on them."

Vicky, who has reportedly already quit the new series of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins days into filming, recently spoke to Fleur East about how much she regrets having sex on TV during her Geordie Shore days.

While it wasn’t a regular occurrence for Vicky, she admits she wishes she’d never bowed to pressure to do the deed while cameras rolled.

“When you are so immersed in something, lines just get blurred and you lose a sense of yourself. (On Geordie Shore) I became me but a caricature of myself,” she said on Fleur’s The Reality of Reality TV podcast.

"Lost in trying to be what I thought everyone wanted us to be: this really outrageous person. I wish I'd never had sex on the telly, like, I absolutely wish. I was never comfortable with it. It was something I felt slightly pressured into doing."
