Vicky Pattison and Spencer Matthews try to explain why they decided to call off their brief romance while appearing on It's Not Me, It's You.

Vicky has landed herself a new role on dating panel show It's Not Me, It's You. She heads up on of the teams alongside Kelly Brooke, while Eamonn Holmes takes the reigns as host. Every week, the trio are joined by a slew of celebrities and are quizzed about all things romance and relationship based.

So, it's no surprise then, that when Spenny joined Kelly's team his history with Vicky was the topic of conversation...

Kelly casually points out that Spencer and Vicky enjoyed a brief fling not too long ago, and Eamonn asks whether the pair are really still friends following their split.

Vicky and Spencer had dated for a short period of time, before she decided to call things off to avoid their relationship getting more serious. Insisting that she and Spencer are still pals regardless, Vicky replies: "No, I really like Spencer. We are really good friends."

Explaining it was his reputation that she was hoping to avoid, Vicky adds: "I said I think we should probably stop this before it gets too serious because I know what your reputation is like..."

Spencer interrupts to say he agreed with Vicky's reason, and she says: "You completely concurred Spencer."

Trying to explain their situation himself, Spencer tells Eamonn he and Vicky were "never a couple", although she awkwardly seems a little confused at that! Vicky interjects: "Erm... I thought we were... hang on a second."

Hoping to get himself out of the hole he has just made for himself, Spencer says: "We had something which was lovely. We enjoyed ourselves and it was great, but we realised in order for us to have something palpable for the rest of our lives, it would be better if were close friends."

Summarising it for everyone in the studio, Vicky points out: "I didn't want to get cheated on [by] Spencer Matthews. I didn't!"

Spencer, however, isn't offended. In fact, he tells Vicky: "I don't blame you."

She concludes: "He didn't want me to be a girl that he cheated on either, so we agreed it would be far better for our relationship if we just nipped it in the bud and remain friends."

Bringing up Spencer's womanising ways, Eamonn asks the former Made In Chelsea star if he would agree with claims he is a "love rat." Not exactly denying them, Spencer responds: " I treat my girlfriends really well until the point I cheat on them. We have like a really amazing time and I'm really tentative and loving, and then it goes south. I don't do it intentionally."

He then jokes: "Am I allowed to call it a medial condition?" That prompts comedian Matt Richardson to bluntly tell Spenny: "No it's called being a c***."


Romance blossomed for Vicky and Spencer after they both joined I'm A Celebrity last year as latecomers. Their time together was cut short, as Spencer was forced to leave the jungle early, while Vicky went on to eventually win the show.

She had admitted to fancying Spencer on her exit, and the pair decided to give things a go earlier this year. At the time they had been dating, Vicky gushed: "[Spencer's] a really nice guy. He's charming, handsome, obviously, and there is definitely something between [us]."

While Vicky is now single, Spencer is in a relationship with model Morgane Robart.
