According to MailOnline, Vicky admitted to having spent 10 years trying to change how people view her.

“I thought I was so grown up but I was still so wet behind the ears and naive, and didn’t really have the tools necessary to navigate the new space I’d found myself in. I was really unprepared for it,” she said.

Vicky previously appeared on ITV’s Lorraine to discuss her antics during her time on Geordie Show.

Vicky said: “I’ll be the first person to hold my hands up ‘and say there are elements of my past that do make me feel a little bit ashamed.”

She went on to explain to Lorraine Kelly, 63, that she felt like a “product of her environment” and made it clear that she was determined to be a better person.

Vicky has won I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!, is a podcaster and champions body positivity on her social media platforms.

Despite having also completed charity treks and having adopted dogs, she fears that people will always just see her as the “girl who had sex on telly.”

By partaking in the ‘Pilgrimage’, Vicky seems to have found a new path. The star took to Instagram to share her feelings, saying: “I can’t begin to tell you what this experience meant to me”.

She commented on how beneficial it was to trek through Portugal and to discuss each other’s religious beliefs.

She added: “As someone who considers herself agnostic more than anything else- I thought I was a pretty rogue booking to say the least. But I fell in love with the pilgrimage- getting back to basics, listening to my fellow pilgrims talk about their faith, learning and understanding as I went”.

When discussing her views about religion, the star said: “I don’t know what I am. I don’t have any really strong beliefs other than I want to believe there is something”. She added that the idea that there is somebody taking care of everybody is really comforting.

Celebrities and fans alike took to Instagram to comment on Vicky’s experience.
