Vicky Pattison was left hoping to reunite a panicked dog with its owner, after rescuing it from a busy main road on her way to hosting her radio show in Newcastle on Tuesday afternoon.

Having been on TV for 13 years now, firstly on Geordie Shore, before winning I'm a Celebrity and starring in many other shows like Celebrity SAS and Masterchef, Vicky made the switch to the airwaves last year, when she was announced as one half of the new partnership for Heart North East's drivetime show.

And it was on her way to present the live broadcast on Tuesday that Vicky's driver saw a dog staggering across a road, just off the busy A1 near the Metrocentre. She explained what happened on her Instagram, telling her millions of followers that she got her driver to spot and she went into the road, stopped oncoming traffic and brought he dog and bring it to safety.

She posted a photo of the dog, which was wearing a collar on her Instagram, in the hope that someone would recognise it, before revealing that she took the animal, who didn't appear to be badly hurt, to a vet. Uploading another photo of her cuddling the dog on her Insta story, Vicky, who has two rescued Labradors of her own, tagged fiancé Ercan Ramadan, as she wrote: "Can we have her?" before admitting that she was feeling sad while on air, as she was worried about the dog.

Vicky had an update on the rescued dog on Wednesday morning, explaining the dog ended up in kennels, as she wrote: "I did everything you're meant to do when you find, a stray, or lost dog. Went straight to the vet, checked her for a microchip and they contacted her owner. By the end of the working day yesterday she hadn't been claimed and was taken by a dog warden to a kennel."

In a further update, just a few minutes later, Vicky added that, while out walking with her labs Max and Milo she'd received a voicemail to inform her that the dog's owners had been claimed by her owners."

Vicky ended her posts about the dog by sharing that it made her want to "hug her babies really right" and do more work with the dog charities she's supported so far.
