Vicky Pattison has taken a swipe at her former co-star Gary Beadle and laughed off rumours he is set to follow in her footsteps on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here...

Last year, fans of the reality show saw Vicky storm to victory and become the new Queen of the jungle. Since then, Gary has revealed he'd like the chance to put himself in camp and claimed I'm A Celeb had asked him to take part in its last series.

He said he had declined to do so as he wasn't prepared to split with his then-girlfriend Lillie Lexie Gregg.

Gary had told The Daily Star: "They said, 'You're good for the show, you'd be perfect. But you've got a bird. Would you be willing to…?'. But I told them I wouldn't."

He did, however, add that he would be "up for" entering the jungle this time round. Although, Vicky isn't so convinced we'll be seeing him taking on a Bushtucker Trial just yet.

Speaking exclusively to Reveal (ahead of being unveiled as the new face of Ann Summers), she told us rumours Gary is headed for the jungle are "hilarious."

"Gary tried to get on I'm A Celebrity last year and they didn't want him because he's a helmet," she said.

Vicky continued: "They didn't want him because he thought he was going to be the hunk of the show, but they evidently already had Spencer [Matthews] so he wasn't necessary. I can't imagine if they refused him once, they will pick him again.

"I also can't imagine they would pick another Geordie Shore star after I won it last year. It doesn't seem likely to me."

Vicky appeared on I'm A Celebrity last year and went on to win the show.

Vicky proved she still hasn't forgiven Gary for criticising her while she was taking part in the show last year. At the time, Gaz had flown out to Australia to appear on I'm A Celebrity's spinoff, I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now, and slammed Vicky for not being the 'real her.'

He had said: "It's not Vicky. She's playing a very safe game. I've known her for a long time and she's the most argumentative person I've ever met in my life. At the minute she's playing it very safe and trying to get everyone to like her."

Vicks told us that if Gary ever did appear on the show, she wishes him luck and added: "I'll be sure to fly over and be on the after show and be as detrimental to his attempt at winning as he was to mine.

"I'm not embarrassed or shy to admit that I don't speak to Gary anymore at all. I like everyone on Geordie Shore and when they succeed and when they do well I see it as a good thing. To find out that he wasn't supportive of my campaign to win the jungle and that he flew over to support me and did nothing but slag me off, it was horrible and heartbreaking to hear, but I tried not to take it personally."

"It was just sour grapes," Vicky claimed. "He wanted to get on the show, but he didn't. It's that simple and straightforward. He's obviously just well jel. I wish them the best of luck in whatever they do, but he's a bag of d*cks still."
