Vicky Pattison has admitted it was “horrible” to watch her fiancé Ercan Ramadan’s mum go through breast cancer.
The 35 year old recently trekked across the Sahara Desert for breast cancer charity CoppaFeel after opening up about her future mother-in-law’s own battle with the illness.
And speaking exclusively to OK!, the former I’m A Celebrity winner told us how emotional the experience was.
“We hadn’t been together long and it was horrible to watch” she said. “Luckily, she recovered – she’s a proper warrior. But it was just really hard to watch someone I care about feel so helpless.
“Unfortunately, that’s what cancer does to people. It’s the only time in four years I’ve seen Ercan cry.”
Vicky spoke about former TOWIE star Ercan’s mum on Lorraine last year as she promoted the trek saying: “Ercan's mum actually survived breast cancer years ago so it's something that's close to my heart.”
The star was joined on the trek by a number of other famous faces including Kelsey Parker, Giovanna Fletcher, TOWIE star Pete Wicks and her own mum Carroll.
Vicky and Ercan got engaged in February last year when he popped the question during a romantic dinner on the beach in Dubai.
And Vicky recently confirmed that the pair will be tying the knot next year. Writing on Instagram, the former Geordie Shore star shared: “I'm so happy I finally get to say this… WE GET MARRIED NEXT YEAR!!!”
But she added that the location is “still unknown” after previously revealing Ercan was keen to get married in Cyprus but she wants their nuptials to be in Italy.
Speaking exclusively to OK! about her wedding plans last year, Vicky, who recently revealed she's started the process of freezing her eggs, told us the duo were planning a star-studded affair across three days in an abroad location.
“I want everyone to have a really nice time,” she said. “I want the day after our wedding to be a pool party and the day before to be a barbecue on the beach.”
And as well as a three-day affair, Vicky also wants three dresses.
She told us: “I’ve been waiting a really long time to meet Ercan and finally get married, so I’m not just going to have one [dress], you’re going to have to stop me at three.
I’ll have one the night before, the day of and then the evening. Oh, and the hen party outfit!”
