Former Geordie Shore star Ricci accused Vicky of allegedly breaking his nose in a vicious assault, but she has hit back calling him a "fantasist".
The reality TV couple broke off their engagement in 2013 and have had a troubled relationship ever since... But this weekend, Ricci told the Sun On Sunday that Vicky had broken his nose with a handbag.
He also claims Vicky mentally and physically abused him during their relationship.
CBB star Ricci says: "She was the fiancée from hell.
"She would hit me and think nothing of it and, because I was a man, it was as if I couldn't seriously talk to anyone about it.
"Vicky left my face in such a state during a row that I've had to have a nose job earlier this year."
Referring to reports she's taking part in this year's I'm A Celebrity, he added: "Allowing Vicky in the jungle will be like caging an angry animal.
"She may play games to begin with but it could be a matter of days before she rips into someone."
Ricci also admits he loved her "when she was calm" and claims he asked GS producers not to air footage of their fights because he "felt sorry for Vicky".
However, a spokesperson for Vicky says: "Ricci is an absolute fantasist and his claims of violence are absolutely untrue and so pathetic that they are not even worthy of a response."
Vicky was seen arriving in Australia earlier this week, seeming to confirm she is set to join the confirmed 10 stars taking part in this year's I'm A Celebrity.
Chris Eubank, Duncan Bannatyne, Yvette Fielding, George Shelley, Jorgie Porter, Kieron Dyer, Brian Friedman, Tony Hadley, Lady Colin Campbell and Susannah Constantine are already filming.
TOWIE's Ferne McCann is also rumoured to be entering the jungle, which could cause fireworks as Vicky and Ferne famously do NOT get on!
