Vicky Pattison has always been open about her rocky love life but now the reality TV star believes she knows the secret to a blossoming romance.

The Geordie Shore beauty, 31, who has had her fair share of heart break - after her former fiancé John Noble was caught on camera grinding against a mystery woman in Dubai in January - believes its is important to love yourself just as much as you love your other half.

The bombshell has said this is why she is now able to have a happy and healthy relationship with TOWIE hunk Ercan Ramadan, 36.

During a recent romantic weekend away at the Wholeness retreat in West Sussex, smitten Vicky opened-up on how focusing on her wellness and being "chilled" has allowed her and Ercan's relationship to thrive.

The confident star told: "I’m feeling super chilled this time around and am falling back in love with wellness which I think is the key – how can you expect someone to love you if you don’t love yourself?"

"Me and Ercan are learning healthy cooking together to that we can continue at home. We’ve had a great time doing it and it’s a nice way to help look after on another," she added.
