Is love in the air? We think so...

We enjoy a good love story as much as the next person – it makes you feel all warm inside, in times of great uncertainty and tabloid #drama such as these.

And when it involves someone we’re fond of, it’s even more of a winner – which is why we’re so glad to see that reigning Jungle queen Vicky Pattison is going public with her romance with John Noble, after years of friendship.

After teasing it previously with pics of them both at dinner, and flirting over social media by way of the heart-eye emoji, Vicky seems to have made things official with her new man with some loved-up shots posted to Snapchat on Wednesday (16th November):

Ooh la la! As Vicky builds on her presenting career while working on I’m A Celebrity… Extra Camp in Australia, she spends her down time with John. What friends fly all the way to the other side of the world just to snuggle?

We have a feeling he could be a special one for the former Geordie Shore star: so here’s your need to know guide to Vicky’s new fella…

He’s a fellow Geordie!

Though Vicky, 29, spends a lot of time down South in her Essex home, whenever she’s back at home in Geordie-land, she has the convenience of having her new bae nearby.

Happy birthday to this one ❤️❤️❤️ @vickypattison.

They have some very special mutual friends

Forget about ‘six degrees of separation’ up in Newcastle – in John’s case, there seems to be a matter of one or two! Not only does he rub shoulders with Vicky’s former co-star Gaz Beadle…

He’s a businessman

It’s clear Vicky’s got her head tightly screwed on – so it’s only right that her love interests follow suit! John is involved in clothing retailer ‘Little And Large’, a shop that claims to cater for all sizes by stocking only two: little and erm, large. Interesting concept…

He clearly likes to spend time in the gym

Never a bad thing…

He’s in with Mummy Pattison

If there’s one thing we know about Vicky P, it’s that she’s a big family gal. And luckily for John, it seems as if he has her mum’s seal of approval, as he and Caroll Pattison made the big journey all the way down to Oz to join Vicky – together!
