Vicky Pattison has said her frozen eggs and embryos are a “fertility savings account” which will enable her to have children even if she cannot conceive naturally. The former Geordie Shore star, 35, from Newcastle, underwent surgery to have 10 of her eggs retrieved earlier this year as she plans for her future with fiance Ercan Ramadan.

The reality TV star began her fertility journey in April last year and has been very open about the process on social media as she aims to support other women in the same position. During an interview with Grazia, Vicky explained that she does not want to be in a position where she is "alone at 40 wanting to have a child".

Vicky said: “I’d spent my whole life feeling beholden to some imaginary timeline: find a man, get married, have a baby. When my engagement ended, I thought of egg freezing as a way to safeguard my future happiness. I see those ones as a savings account tucked away, just in case. I love Ercan, we’re planning a wedding, we have two dogs and a house together, but quite frankly, I’ve been here before. And I would hate to be alone in my forties wanting a child and not being able to have one.”

Vicky was previously in a relationship with childhood sweetheart John Noble for a number of years. The couple were due to get married in 2019, but Vicky called off their engagement after John was caught cuddling up to another woman in a nightclub in Dubai.

She is now happily engaged to former TOWIE star Ercan Ramadan after he got down on one knee during a romantic break in Dubai in February 2022, just a couple of weeks after Valentine’s Day. The happy couple are set to get married in 2024, and Vicky has already been sharing plans with her fans. Earlier this month, she told her Instagram followers she has found the perfect wedding venue.
