This is awkward!
Vicky Pattison has issued a heartfelt apology to 2003 Pop Idol winner Michelle McManus after some comments she made five years ago.
The drama started when the Geordie Shore star shared a defiant message hitting back at cruel trolls who had mocked photos of her in a bikini during a trip to Mexico.
But having seen the post, singer Michelle then shared her own social media photo, calling Vicky out on a news article which appeared in 2014.
The old post read: ‘There’s a Michelle McManus inside me dying to get out!’
‘Vicky Pattison gorges on pizza and chips despite her ‘constant fear’ of gaining weight.’
Michelle captioned the images: ‘Yes @vickypattison because you’ve never publicly body shamed anyone have you? Oh wait…’
While many fans were shocked by the post, 31-year-old Vicky has now been forced to speak out, insisting she ‘cannot apologise enough’.
She told the Daily Mail: ‘There are a lot of things I did five years ago that I’m not proud of.
‘And to be honest, I wouldn’t even recognise the girl I was back then.’
She then added: ‘I cannot apologise enough if my comments caused upset or hurt. I can guarantee even then it was not my intention, just my ignorance. I hope you accept my apology.’
This comes after former I’m A Celebrity winner Vicky shared a candid video of her bikini body yesterday, showing off her ‘rolls’ and ‘cellulite’ following some negative comments about recent paparazzi photos.
‘This is my body. I’m not perfect, but I don’t even know what perfect would look like,’ she said.
Vic then urged her followers to stop judging other people’s appearance, adding: ‘Please guys don’t do it, don’t body-shame, don’t troll. We’ve all got bits, curvy bits, wobbly bits, fat bits. Just love your bits.’
