Former Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison has her sights firmly set on the I'm a Celebrity: Get Me Out of Here! jungle but says "nothing has been confirmed" yet.

Speaking to Anton Savage on Today FM this morning, Vicky addressed rumours she's already signed up and ready to go.

“People always say I’m going in or whatever, I have no made secret that it’s a massive, massive dream of mine to be part of the jungle," she said.

"It’s one of those things that’s completely on my bucket list. I don’t know, there’s been nothing confirmed.”

Vicky (27) who most recently appeared in reality show Ex on the Beach, revealed that money is her motivation, not fame.

“I’m very honest about my thirst for money and I’ve never hidden the fact that fame doesn’t interest me, its success and money that I want," she told Anton.

“The thing with I’m A Celebrity is it’s a challenge. There’s nothing else in the world for someone like me to do where I would be able to show people what I really am and what I’m really capable of.

“I’ve never spoken to anyone from I’m A Celebrity at all and I’ve made no secret of the fact that I want to do it either.”

However, the queen of reality TV would not be so quick to enter the Celebrity Big Brother House, which would be a walk in the park compared to MTV's Geordie Shore.

“No, there’s no challenge, it’s just an extension of Geordie Shore really isn’t it? And I nearly lost my mind in there," she said.

Speaking about her ongoing feud with fellow Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson she said, "She feels the need to resurrect it every so often, probably cause she’s not very busy.

“I don’t have an awful lot of time for this back and forth and I don’t have awful lot of patience for it either.

“I refuse to facilitate her need for the press any longer, so there you have it...’Shut up and stop talking about us, you silly little girl.'

“People have these preconceived notions of who I am or what I’m like and a lot of the time, it couldn’t be further from the truth.”

Commenting on her current relationship status, Vicky also told Anton: “I am single and totally fine, which is where I find myself most of the time really.”

Vicky appeared on the show to promote her new book 'Christmas Kiss'.
