Reveal - - Celebs -

F ormer Loose Women pan­el­list Vicky Pat­ti­son has just an­nounced her en­gage­ment to busi­ness­man John Noble.

De­spite find­ing The One, Vicky tells us she won’t be start­ing a fam­ily any time soon. How­ever, she’s happy to of­fer her baby-sit­ting ser­vices to BFF Ferne McCann, 26, who’s 23 weeks preg­nant with her first child by her ex, Arthur Collins.

‘I’d love to be god­mother to Ferne’s baby!’ Vicky tells us at the launch of her body-con­fi­dence cam­paign for lin­gerie brand Ann Sum­mers.

A baby might not be on the cards, but the re­al­ity-TV star is look­ing for­ward to set­tling down with John – who she rekin­dled her ro­mance with in Septem­ber – and couldn’t be hap­pier at the thought of be­com­ing Mrs Noble…

CON­GRATS ON YOUR EN­GAGE­MENT! WAS THE PRO­POSAL A COM­PLETE SUR­PRISE?

Yes, but it was done so per­fectly. John pro­posed up north, dur­ing a morn­ing walk with his dog, Roxie, and it was re­ally ro­man­tic.

WHEN WILL YOU START WED­DING PLAN­NING?

Blimey, not quite yet! I’m go­ing to en­joy this time for now. I’m still buzzing, and keep look­ing at my hand to check my ring is still there! I’ve got a per­ma­nent smile on my face and it’s the best feel­ing ever.

NOW YOU’RE EN­GAGED, HAVE YOU AND JOHN THOUGHT ABOUT MOV­ING IN TO­GETHER?

Ab­so­lutely – we def­i­nitely will but, with work be­ing so busy, we still need time to work out our plans. Every­one thinks I’m a bit keen, but 10 months [to­gether] is a long time and we’re en­gaged now. I think fate brought us back to­gether.

DID YOU LEAVE GE­ORDIE SHORE TO FIND LOVE?

On shows like TOWIE or Made In Chelsea, you’re stronger in a re­la­tion­ship, but in

G-Shore, that’s not the case. You fall by the way­side, be­cause you’re not cre­at­ing chaos. It’s very dif­fi­cult in that house, as all the failed re­la­tion­ships prove. But I didn’t leave [in 2014] to find love – I left to pur­sue my ca­reer. What I wanted wasn’t go­ing to come from be­ing there, so I got out and it just so hap­pened that I met some­one.

WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF CHAR­LOTTE CROSBY DAT­ING YOUR EX, STEPHEN BEAR?

I just think it’s dead nice every­one’s happy.

HAVE YOU SEEN FERNE RE­CENTLY?

We’re plan­ning to go for brunch soon, but I saw her a few weeks ago and she looked stun­ning – she’s all bump, and pos­i­tively glow­ing. Preg­nancy re­ally suits her. This is just the start of things to come – she’s go­ing to be an amaz­ing mum.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE GOD­MOTHER?

One hun­dred and ten per cent. I think that’s an hon­our she should give to her sib­lings but, if she asked me, I’d take my re­spon­si­bil­i­ties very se­ri­ously.

WHAT TYPE OF GOD­MOTHER WOULD YOU BE?

A cool one. I want to be the rich aun­tie who spoils the kid – the in­ap­pro­pri­ate, drunk one with loads of dogs!

ARE YOU EX­CITED TO TURN 30 IN NOVEM­BER?

I’m in no rush! I do worry about get­ting

‘Love your­self, and the rest will fall into place’

Ferne’s baby by ex Arthur Collins is due at the end of the year
