Vicky Pattison signs up for celebrity driving series - report

The former Geordie Shore star is the first contestant to sign on for All Star Driving Test.

Vicky Pattison will reportedly learn to drive in seven days for a new reality show.

The former Geordie Shore star is the first contestant to sign on for All Star Driving Test, which will follow a host of celebrities being put through their paces behind the wheel, and at the end of each day, they will be rewarded with meals and spa treatments if they do well or will be given challenges such as changing a tyre if they do badly.

"Contestants will be put through an intensive course like nothing seen before," a source for the show told Britain's The Sun newspaper. "There will be all sorts involved, from three-point turns to rally driving and off-roading in 4x4s... But it's not just driving, as producers want it to be really wacky and light-hearted."

According to the source, the contestants will face a series of non-driving challenges as well, include canyon swinging and a navigation trial, where they will be left in the woods in the middle of the night and have to figure out their way home.

The 29-year-old will reportedly be paid £5,000 and be given a Suzuki Ignis to use for six months in return for taking part in the show.

The show will air on E4 on weekdays evening and filming will begin later in June (17). The rest of the line-up of learner drivers has yet to be announced.

Vicky is no stranger to taking part in reality TV challenges - she was crowned Queen of the Jungle in the 2015 series of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

She returned to Australia the following year to present the sister show Extra Camp with fellow winners Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash and comedian Chris Ramsey. Both Vicky and Chris announced they wouldn't be returning for the 2017 series back in April (17).
