Vicky Pattison has been one of the stand out stars in this year’s edition of ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ – but it is down to the public to decide who will be crowned this year’s King or Queen of the jungle.
Judging by the positive comments on Twitter, it seems that she could well prove the bookies right and be the last one to leave the jungle.
Here we look at 8 reasons why Vicky should win ‘I’m a Celeb’ this year…
1. She was the best camp leader
‘With great power, comes great responsibility…I learnt that from Harry Potter’ – that was one of her quotes not long after she arrived in the jungle, and she was quickly given power and responsibility when she was selected to be the camp leader.
Whilst she was in charge, the camp was peaceful, well-organised and generally a happy place to be – which is testament to her ability to quickly adapt to the role.
Vicky was a fair and patient head of camp, whose leadership style was appreciated by her fellow camp-mates as well as viewers of the show.
2. She’s always ready for a challenge
Every year there are several contestants who try and shy away from taking part in the dreaded trials, but not Vicky.
She’s ready to tackle any of the bush-tucker trials and you can be sure that she will always give 100% to try and win the maximum number of stars for the camp.
3. She always tries to keep the peace
The main talking point in this year’s show has been Lady C and her aggressive nature towards several of the other camp members – most notably Tony and Duncan.
Vicky has regularly tried to diffuse the tension between the two sides of the argument in an effort to keep the peace throughout the camp.
Whilst she came across as quite argumentative in some episodes of Geordie Shore, she has really shown her true colours in the jungle as someone who is fair, cool, calm and collected.
Without her intervention, there could have been much bigger conflicts between Lady C and the ‘old goats’.
4. She has been mature throughout the show
Despite being one of the younger members of the camp, Vicky has shown a level of maturity that many of the older contestants would do well to emulate.
5. She wants to make her family and the North East proud
After receiving her letter from home, she went to the diary room to explain how much it meant to her to make her family proud. She said that she hadn’t given her family much to be proud of in the past but there is no doubt they will be proud with her for the way she has come across in ‘I’m a Celeb’.
Her mother told the Mirror, ‘I am so proud of her as she is being allowed to show the real Vicky,’
‘My girl is so witty and down to earth and the comments I’ve seen from everyone watching is that they love that side of her.’
Her mother also told the press that it means so much for her to have support from fellow Geordies.
6. She’s not afraid to look daft
Dressing up as a flying squirrel might not appeal to many other celebrities, but for Vicky it was the chance to have a bit of fun. She has already said that she is having the time of her life in the jungle and she is keen to embrace every opportunity given to her – even if it means looking a bit daft!
7. It’s time for there to be a Queen of the jungle
The last time there was a Queen of the jungle was back in 2012, when Charlie Brooks was the last to leave.
Surely it’s time for there to be a new Queen of the jungle – and Vicky would be perfect to wear the crown.
8. She has massively changed public perception of her
Her mum said she is so glad that Vicky can show her real side in the jungle to thousands of people across the UK. Geordie Shore is a controversial show, and whilst it is there that she became well-known, she will be a whole lot prouder of the way she has come across in this year’s edition of ‘I’m a Celeb’.
Twitter and Facebook are full of comments about how their opinion of Vicky has changed so much since she entered the camp.
