Vicky Pattison rose to fame following her time on popular MTV reality show Geordie Shore back in 2011.

Geordie Shore was infamous for its boozy antics, with storylines revolving around the cast going out on the toon and dealing with their mighty hangovers the next day.

Vicky, now 34, remained as part of the Geordie Shore cast for three years before she quit the show to take on other ventures, including Ex On The Beach, Judge Geordie and I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2015, where she was crowned Queen of the Jungle.

The telly favourite has recently explained her struggles with anxiety and revealed she would turn to drink to calm her nerves.

In tonight's Channel 4 documentary on her personal struggles with alcohol, Vicky is seen confronting her demons as she explores her relationship with her alcoholic dad, John.

However, the TV star has revealed that it was her fiance, former builder Ercan Ramadan, 38, who finally helped her curb her drinking habits.

She said: "If we had met 10 years younger, we just wouldn’t have worked at all. I probably would’ve thought he was boring. But he’s exactly what I need. He provides me with a sense of calm.

“When I have a drink, that relaxes me. And that was all I’d ever found that calmed me down – until Ercan. He makes it feel like it’s OK to be totally myself.”

Here's everything you need to know about Vicky and Ercan's relationship.

When did Vicky Pattison and Ercan Ramadan start dating?

The pair began dating in January 2019 following the end of Vicky's engagement to John Noble after cheating revelations tore them apart.

However, Vicky called off her relationship with Ercan after a string of dates as she was concerned that things were moving too quickly.

Luckily, the pair couldn't stay apart for long as they made up a few weeks later and have been going strong ever since.

Ercan got down on one knee in a lavish proposal in Dubai earlier this year.

The TV star confirmed the engagement in a social media post, with the picture caption reading: "Choose you and I'll choose you over and over without pause, without a doubt, in a heartbeat… It'll always be you.

"To our forever @ercan_ram…"

The engagement came as a shock to fans as Vicky had stated last year that she was in no rush to tie the knot.

Vicky previously told The Sun: "I do think I’m getting to that stage that I’m ready to make that commitment to someone – not just anyone…

"But I spent so many years rushing though life – wanting the next job, the next house, the next stage of my relationship."

Vicky and Ercan moved into their palatial home in Essex back in April 2021.

But the former Geordie Shore star later admitted that she was the sole owner of the property following a bitter split from her ex-partner John.

Following the cheating revelations, Vicky was forced to buy her ex-partner out of the Newcastle home they shared together, later admitting that she doesn't want to find herself in the same situation again.

Vicky previously told Fabulous magazine: "'This is my house. I bought it and Ercan lives with me.

"I had a really hard time with my last relationship. The emotional stuff was hard enough, but what ended up dragging out was the financial side of things."

Vicky and Ercan continue to live at the £1.5m plush pad in Essex with their golden labrador Milo.
