Has Vicky Pattison ruled out any hopes of romance with her best pal and Judge Geordie co-star Alex Cannon?

She has said in the past that Alex is her "dream man", but Vicky won't be trying to make a go of things with him, as she doesn't want to ruin their close friendship.

Yes, Vicks may fancy Alex and they may have kept us all guessing when it comes to *those* romance rumours, but it sounds like we won't see the pair actually get together anytime soon.

Opening up about Alex in a recent interview with Fabulous magazine, Vicky revealed she and Alex have gone past the point of romance now.

She explained: "For a long while I really did think something was going to happen, and because I don't think he was aware of that, it made our relationship a little odd. I was wanting more and he was confused by my behaviour."

"Maybe I was confusing a great friendship with love," she said. "We've obviously kissed, but we've never slept together and I think we've got past that point now."

Vicky added that she doesn't want to try and pursue things romantically with Alex, as she doesn't want to risk the friendship they already have - even if everyone has said she'll end up marrying him one day.

The 28-year-old said: "He's everything I want in a bloke. He's amazing... I don't want to lose him. That might mean keeping him as me best friend for the rest of me life rather than leap and risking it."

Despite deciding not to go there with Alex, Vicky admitted that she and him do criticise anyone they are each romantically linked to.

Vicky most recently dated Spencer Matthews, and she revealed Alex had his doubts. She said: "When I was seeing Spencer, he said, 'Really? He's not a bit of you, Vic.'"

In the end, things didn't work out between Vicky and Spencer. She decided to end their brief fling, after expressing her concerns over his womanising past. Vicky explained to Reveal back in April: "Obviously I'm flying the flag for strong, sassy women everywhere and the whole dating Spencer Matthews thing is not good for that image. Being cheated on by Spencer Matthews is even less good for that image...

"You've got to look after number one, haven't you? And I'm desperate not to be on that list of girls..."

She has since jetted off to Dubai with Alex, their pal Gavin Foord, her sister Laura Pattison and her mum for a sunshine break.
