Vicky's slimmed down since splitting from Ricci

Ricci Guarnaccio admits he never had a problem with Vicky Pattison‘s weight.

Vicky, 26, slimmed down from a size 16 to a size 6/8 following her split from former fiancé Ricci but Ricci, 27, thinks she looked great before.

‘I believe in how comfortable you feel in yourself,’ the Geordie Shore star says.

‘When I went out with her, I didn’t take notice of her weight. I thought she was sound before.’

Ricci approves of his ex’s new body but hasn’t wanted to discuss her that much.

‘She looks really well,’ the Newcastle lad says.

‘It’s taken a lot of graft. But I saw an interview where she said, “I can’t believe Ricci hasn’t rung and congratulated me on my weight loss.”

‘I don’t know what world she lives in, but she’s called me every name under the sun.

‘She’s slagged me off for a whole year, then she wants me to congratulate her? I don’t like being associated with her.’
