Speaking to Daily Mail, Vicky explained why she chose not to tune into Celebrity Big brother last series, remarking: "No one wants to see their ex-boyfriend all the time. You don't want to walk out your door and bump into them."
"I didn't watch a lot of CBB because it was a difficult one for me to keep abreast with for obvious reasons," she said. "I had an ex-boyfriend in there... I don't wish them any ill. They're completely entitled to their own success, but it's not something I'm going to follow avidly. Not a bad word... it would have been difficult to watch."
Vicky and Bear initially met while filming for Ex On The Beach's third series in 2015. They struck up a romance on the show, but it was short-lived as Vicky was sent home early by their co-star Ali Drew.
Following filming, Vicky and Bear made their relationship official, but ended up splitting in October that year. At the time, Bear appeared to accuse Vicky of 'cheating' on him - something she strongly denied.
Wow.... Just stop talking about me man... Allow it... Pathetic... Want to be on a reality to show these days?! Just drop my name #shoein— Vicky Pattison (@VickyPattison) July 28, 2016
During Bear's CBB entrance he had name dropped Vicky in his VT, prompting Vicky to hit out at him on Twitter. Bear had said: "For Ex On The Beach I was the most famous for kissing the birds, all of the birds... one of my ex birds was Vicky Pattison, I gave everything for her, I was the best I could. For some reason she hates me, I don't know what I've done so wrong, but there you go..."
Vicky responded by claiming Bear had used her name to secure his place on CBB. She tweeted: "Wow.... Just stop talking about me man... Allow it... Pathetic... Want to be on a reality to show these days?! Just drop my name #shoein."
Bear responded to Vicky's claims, following his exit from the house (he went on to win CBB) and remarked she had been "lucky to cross his bedroom."
Speaking to our friends over at Digital Spy, Bear said: "First of all, did she get me on Ex On The Beach or not? Did Vicky Pattison get me on Ex On The Beach, series three?
"Do your research, no she never. I was on Ex On The Beach series three because I'm funny and charming and nice to be with and it's true. And I met her on a show where in all fairness she was very lucky to cross my bedroom."
However, Bear (who has also revealed that Vicky blocked him on Whats App following their break up) has said that he would like the opportunity to clear the air with Vicky.
He has suggested that "a lot needs to be said" between the pair. Bear told Daily Star Sunday: "I want to clear the air. That's not to say I want to get back with her but it would be nice to sort things out and get a bit of clarity. When we broke up we both agreed it was the right thing to do, but she then did a lot of spiteful things to make me jealous."
Vicky, meanwhile, never responded.
