Vicky Pattison opens up about ‘pressure’ to do lads’ mag photoshoot at 23

Vicky Pattison has opened up about the “pressure” she felt from MTV to do her first lads' mag shoot at the age of 23 for Nuts.

The 34 year old first shot to fame when she starred on Geordie Shore when the show debuted back in 2011 which documented many of the wild antics between the cast members.

Just four months after the show premiered, co-stars Vicky and Charlotte Crosby appeared in the September edition of Nuts where they posed in their underwear.

In her new book The Secret To Happy, the starlet opened up about how she grew up in a prudish household.

Now in an interview with OK! Magazine, the star has revealed how she felt pressure to do the raunchy photoshoot from MTV as her co-stars excitedly prepared for the exclusive photoshoot.

Vicky told the publication: “They [the Geordie Shore cast] were all really excited about doing Nuts and things like that, and I felt like I was letting everybody down if I didn’t.

“I received a little bit of pressure from MTV, I felt like I didn’t want to let anyone down, and I did think, ‘Oh it is just a bikini’. I did it and my mum was devastated.”

Daily Star has approached MTV for a comment.

Despite the pressure to take part in the shoot, the reality star confessed that the shoot itself wasn’t that bad, saying that she “made it out to be something it wasn’t” and had a “really nice day”.

She explained: “But I think that I felt a bit of pressure, but I probably made it out to be something it wasn’t in my head.

“I think because it was for a lads mag, I didn’t want to be seen in a certain way.”

More than ten years on from the memorable shoot, Vicky has now changed her opinion of women and their sexuality, and proudly encourages women to do whatever they want with their bodies.

The star has even launched her own bikini and underwear collection which has been extremely successful since she left the Newcastle-based reality show.

Vicky was beaming with pride as she showcased some of the behind-the-scenes snaps as she launched her Pour Moi x Vicky Pattison collection on Instagram.

As she posed in a brown lacy lingerie set with a regal pair of wings behind her, she penned: “I am so excited to be working with one of my favourite brands, Pour Moi.

“Body confidence to me is learning to love the skin you’re in, we’re all fabulously flawed and that’s what makes us human and beautiful.

“This edit will make you feel fabulous, I hope you love it as much as I do!”
