Vicky Pattison is learning to drive

Vicky Pattison is learning to drive.

The 29-year-old former "Geordie Shore" star, who was crowned winner of "I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!" in 2015, has started studying the Highway Code in preparation for taking driving lessons.

On Monday (22.05.17) the reality star shared a short clip on her Instagram story of her riding in the front passenger seat of a car with a copy of The Official Highway Code in her hands, with the caption "And so it begins..." followed by a crying with laughter and a red car emoji.

It's not yet clear whether the star is simply reading up on her knowledge before booking lessons or whether she has actually got into the driving seat for her first lesson on the road.

In an interview last year, she listed driving lessons as part of her New Year resolutions for 2017.

She said: "I want to learn to drive, spend more time with my friends and go on holiday to Dubai and Las Vegas. There's no point making money if you can't enjoy it!"

And just last month she ticked off the Dubai holiday trip, when she jetted off for a relaxing break with boyfriend John Noble, shortly after she lost out on the "Blind Date" presenting job to Paul O'Grady.

Meanwhile, it looks like the former "Judge Geordie" star has a lot on her plate at the moment as she recently admitted she is head over heels for her beau John and would say yes in a heartbeat if he asked for her hand in marriage.

Asked if she could see an engagement on the horizon, she gushed: "That's his decision, isn't it? I don't want to spend my life with anyone else. I love him dearly, so whenever he is ready, he knows where I am! ...

"John is the first man who has stimulated my mind and body, and he matters to me more than I matter to myself. I don't know how I survived without him. I've been controlled and smothered [in the past], but he's so supportive and kind, and the first man who has seen us as his equal rather than someone to compete with."

Now she has rekindled her romance with John, she feels she is in a better mindset.

She added: "Things that I felt I let go last year were my health, fitness and personal life... I'm 30 this year and am not willing to sacrifice the life I want to live for a career."
