A broken back, a dislocated shoulder, a broken leg in nine places, a fractured ankle, a dislocated elbow, a “devastating” leg injury, a blood clot on the lung, snapped cruciate ligaments, ripped ligaments, torn ligaments, whiplash, friction burns, and even a death. It sounds like an awful night in A&E. But these injuries were all picked up on reality TV shows, most of them occurring on Channel 4’s winter sports show The Jump.

It certainly seems as though that could be the case if the Geordie Shore star’s mum Carol is correct as she has predicted Vicky and her I’m A Celeb campmate Kieron will get along just fine during the TV series. The raven-haired star is no stranger to TV show displays of affection from her time in Geordie Shore, but there’s no chance of a romance with Kieron as he’s married.
Lady C, as she’s become affectionately known in the camp, has proved a popular figure on the ITV show and she once praised Larry - who is also known for his role as Mick Shipman in BBC comedy Gavin and Stacey - as an “accomplished lover”.
