The Geordie reality television star was left “shaken” by the incident.

Former Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison had a “terrifying brush with death” yesterday evening, as an Uber taxi she was in caught fire.

The 35-year-old reality TV star, author and podcaster was on her way to Essex restaurant Sheesh with her husband to be, Ercan Ramadan, when the vehicle the couple were travelling in started showing signs that something was wrong.

In an Instagram story, which was then uploaded to Vicky’s feed, the couple explained that they noticed an engine management light on, before the car started to make “a really horrible noise”.

The car pulled over, and according to Vicky, the driver was insistent that everything was fine. However, the car apparently started to smoke, before catching fire completely. Vicky shared photos and videos of the car they were previously in, which could be seen on fire.

Vicky went on to further explain that the police attended the scene, and she and Ercan were given a lift by a kind stranger to Borehamwood train station.  Vicky ended the video by saying: “I’m a little bit shaken up!”

However, the couple did not let the incident put a stop to their plans, as they dined in the Essex restaurant Sheesh later that evening, as Vicky shared loved up snaps and photos of their meal.

In the caption of the Instagram feed post, Vicky further explained that Uber had apologised to her for the incident, and provided the couple with a refund for their journey.
