Loose Women star claims producers told her to push guests on verge of tears

Vicky Pattison gets told by doctor to make lifestyle changes

Vicky Pattison, 35, has claimed producers made her “push” emotional Loose Women guests who were on the brink of tears.

The former Geordie Shore star said made the allegation on her podcast and said she would resist the calls from bosses and would sometimes visibly shake her head.

She shared: “I used to do Loose Women… I remember getting voices in my ear saying, ‘She’s about to cry, push her on this…’

“Like when we were interviewing people and I just remember – if you ever see a clip of me on Loose Women, I bet you I’m shaking my head.

“Because I’m physically like, ‘There’s no way I’m doing that, no way I’m doing that.'”

“She has been a guest many times and has loved each and every appearance on the show.

“They consistently offer a very welcoming and safe space for her.”

In 2017, Vicky revealed she quit Loose Women because she felt “inadequate”.

She told Bella magazine at the time: “Being offered the show was a huge achievement.

“Everyone’s so lovely, so professional, with a wealth of experience. It just highlighted my lack of experience and naivety.

“A lot of the topics they discussed on the show – marriage, divorce, hardcore feminism, kids – loads of housewives and women can relate to that, but I found myself coming up short quite a lot.”

Loose Women airs on weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
