By now I’m sure you’ve all heard that 28-year-old Jungle Queen, Vicky Pattison, will be appearing as a guest panellist on Wed 6th Jan – rumoured to potentially to kick off a month long trial.

Following a string of audience complaints, is the fresh faced Geordie beauty the ITV’s latest attempt for the daytime chat show to win back viewers, with hopes of even impressing a younger demographic.
It’s common knowledge that Vicky isn’t one to hold back her opinions, and therefore it’s no surprise that she been selected by the producers as an ideal candidate to partake in the usual topical debates.
A TV source said: “Vicky won I’m A Celeb by a landslide so everyone knows she is popular, especially with a younger audience.
“ITV are desperate to keep a hold of her and invest in her as a future star.”
Vicky won over the British public during her ‘mint’ time in the jungle with her honest (yet sometimes brutal) Geordie wit.
However, will the celebrity be able to reign in her harsh one liners and bad language for pre-watershed television?
Is she right for the job?
Will it kick-start her presenting career?
Will you be tuning in to ITV to watch her?
I, for one, think not.
I believe people voted for Vicky to win because her real personality shone through in the jungle. The latter will chance if she moves to a daytime setting; one where language is censored and controversy is rife. As much as I like her, I feel the move will be damaging and ensure the loss of fans, as she will no longer seem ‘real’ and like the relatable girl next door everyone wants to be friends with.
I asked my Twitter followers their thoughts.
