Vicky Pattison has come a long way from her drunken Geordie Shore antics.

The 28-year-old may have shot to fame as a foul-mouthed party animal on the MTV show, but her reformation in the I'm A Celebrity Jungle means a wealth of more wholesome opportunities are awaiting her.

And front and centre of this career resurgence is a role on daytime panel show Loose Women.

She will join Ruth Langsford (55) and Coleen Nolan (50) as the youngest member of the round table team to discuss topical issues with celebrity guests.

"Vicky won I'm A Celeb by a landslide, so everyone knows she is popular, especially with a younger audience," an ITV insider told The Sun.

"ITV are desperate to keep a hold of her and invest in her as a future star. She really impressed Loose Women's editors when she was a guest this month.

"She isn't one to hold back with her opinions and will love getting stuck in during debates. This could be her big chance to land a full-time presenting gig."

It's reported she will first join the show on a month-long trial basis and transition into a full-time role.
