Smitten Vicky Pattinson has sent temperatures soaring by putting on a sexy display with in a tiny swimsuit after going public with new boyfriend, TOWIE builder Ercan Ramadan.
The former Geordie Shore star showed off her assets in a fierce leopard-print one-piece as she holidayed in Dubai.
Speculation has swirled for a while that Vicky and Ercan might be an item: they were spotted on a mini-break at the exclusive Soho Farmhouse in the Cotswolds last month and were photographed a few days later packing on the PDA at Singers Crazy Golf.
After that most recent date, Vicky issued a denial that the pair were together, issuing a statement saying “Vicky went out for a few drinks with Ercan and they really enjoyed each others company. She thinks he’s a lovely guy and they had a great time but Vicky is still 100% single.”
But now Vicky, who’s just about to début her new TV show Vicky Pattison: The Break Up, seems ready to go public. She shared a cute pic of herself giggling in Ercan’s arms and captioned it “Everything has changed, and yet I’m more me than I have ever been.”
Pal – and TOWIE alumnus – Mario Falcone immediately commented “This makes me happy.”
Vicky called off her engagement to businessman John Noble three months ago after he got a bit too close to a number of women on a lads’ holiday in Dubai.
The 31-year-old Geordie Shore star commented: “I am definitely once bitten twice shy.
“Or a million times bitten twice shy because I’ve made so many mistakes when it comes to men.
But now, it seems, she is ready to love again.
Speaking to The Sun, Vicky gushed: “I am seeing someone. It’s very early but I’m dating again. I’m having fun, I’m smiling again.”
She then continued, adorably: “I’ve just texted him to ask him if he wants to do face masks tonight. “
