Vicky Pattison has said that being arrested for assaulting two women in a nightclub and the period that followed was "one of the lowest moments" of her life.
The former Geordie Shore star said she had become a "shadow of my former self" around the time she lashed out at a reveller and a bouncer with her shoes at a bar in Newcastle in 2013.
Following the altercation, Pattison returned to her mother's house, where she was arrested after a police search.
Speaking to Fabulous' new podcast Things I Told My Daughter with Lisa Snowdon, Pattison (31) said: "There's been some moments where my mum hasn't agreed with the things I did.
"This without a doubt was one of the lowest points of our relationship and my mental health was at an all-time low.
"It was one of the lowest moments of my life."
Pattison, who was later charged with two counts of assault, said: "I was down and demoralised and sensitive. I coped with it the best I did with the series [of Geordie Shore] we did in Australia, but when I came back to Newcastle I had to face it."
Referring to MTV, who broadcast the reality TV series, she added: "Six weeks later, they wanted us to go back into the house again.
"And I remember saying no, I know I needed some time to myself to get my head around what I'm going through and what I've been through. I was a shadow of my former self.
"They said fine, take your time ... we'll just replace you."
