“I think everyone assumed I was riding high and having a good time and I was, but I felt so unworthy, like a cheater syndrome,” she said.

“When I came out, I was having a hard time and I thought I’d ruin it if I wasn’t careful.

“It’s easy to blame my complicated relationship with alcohol on the Geordie coast, but that wasn’t true. I had an underlying problem.”

Vicky – who rose to fame on the MTV reality show Geordie Shore, which is about hard-drinking residents of Newcastle – revealed that her mother, Caroll, found it difficult to watch the show.

“She said she found the whole experience difficult, she said she didn’t recognize the person I had become,” Vicky added of her mother.

“She saw her clever daughter become an almost caricature of herself.”

It comes when Vicky said she’s no longer reaching for a drink to calm her nerves — and she’s credited her fiancé Ercan Ramadan for helping her out.

She told the Mirror: ‘Had we met 10 years younger, we just wouldn’t have worked at all, I probably would have found him boring. But he is exactly what I need, he gives me peace.’

Vicky claims she drinks because she’s “neurotic,” adding that she’s “always nervous.”

She said, “When I drink something, it relaxes me and that was all I’d ever found that calmed me down—until Ercan.” He makes me feel like it’s okay to be myself.”

Vicky confirmed she’s tied the knot with her partner after he got down on one knee during a marriage proposal in Dubai in February.
