Vicky Pattison has said she couldn't care less about "not so flattering" images of her in a bikini, saying she won't let worries about being "perfect" affect her life.

The former Geordie Shore star was snapped out in Ibiza on Wednesday (6 July) while attending a pool party with ex-TOWIE star Lauren Pope.

She was seen wearing a bikini as she made her way into a venue, apparently unaware that the cameras had spotted her. Some critics suggested they weren't the most flattering images of the star.

Vicky's response? So what.

The Queen of the Jungle responded via Instagram, saying: "Life is for living... It's for travelling, having adventures, getting drunk, making mistakes, meeting new people, catching up with old friends, laughing, loving, dancing til the sun comes up and just silliness!!

"If you're hoping I'll crumble or cry over a couple 'not so flattering images' that were taken without my knowledge and when I was drunk you obviously don't know me very well!! I'm just a normal girl enjoying myself on holiday with my mates!

"I'm not perfect - neither is my body - and I never claimed to be! Why don't we all just embrace normality, chill out and have a g&t eh?!! Well at least that's what I'll be doing!!! Namaste all (sic)."

Well said, Vicky!

The I'm A Celebrity star has said in hte past that her weight can directly affect her happiness, explaining on Loose Women: "My weight is directly correlated to my happiness. It's hard to maintain looking good and doing all the things you want to... but if I got to a size 10 or 12... I like my body at a size 8 and I think, 'Come on pull your socks up, get back to the gym.'"

But she's also told Reveal she doesn't believe in constant dieting, especially when on holiday.

"Life is for living! I think every lass who is working hard lives for their summer holidays. When they get away, they enjoy themselves, get a bit silly, have a few drinks and kiss a boy they probably shouldn't!" she said. "The moment I walk out of the airport, there are absolutely no f**ks given about my diet. I lost weight to feel good about myself, look good in my clothes and live the life I want to live."
