“I felt sick to my stomach watching it back, ” Vicky said. “I don’t know if I blocked [these incidents] from my memory or if I was just so pissed I can’t remember. I’d never watched Geordie Shore before even when I was on it, because I didn’t like who it made me become.”
Vicky, whose dad John is an alcoholic, said she worried she was also on the path to alcoholism, saying “it was going to happen sooner or later.”
The brunette beauty also opens up about how she felt pressured to have sex on camera to live up to her wild persona on the MTV hit.
She refers to the scene in which she slept with her fiance at the time as “massively damaging” .

Vicky recalled: I don’t blame the producers for anything, but I didn’t have the skills to navigate being surrounded by that much alcohol. I was young and felt the pressure to be who they wanted me to be, and that made me feel so powerless.
” It definitely exacerbated my issues. I became a complete caricature.”
Despite her issues, however, Vicky has since sought therapy and says she now drinks in moderation.
She also insists she would not describe herself as an alcoholic, despite her father’s battle.
“I wouldn’t define myself as an alcoholic,” she stressed. “But I have a complicated relationship with alcohol. It’s a slippery slope from being social to being dependent to being addicted. I’ve danced with that my whole adult life.”
Vicky, who is now happily engaged to fiance and former TOWIE star Ercan Ram, also revealed the real reason she isn’t sure if she wants children.

In the past, the star said she felt she was “too selfish” to have kids, but now reveals there is a more serious reason for her doubts.
“The real reason was because I had all my dad’s issues and hang-ups and addictions, ” she admitted. “I was so frightened my children would end up like me: broken.”
