Geordie Shore star and winner of I’m a Celebrity...Get me out of here! Vicky Pattison was left confined to a wheelchair after attempting Iceland’s challenging Landmannalaugar trail to raise money for a breast cancer awareness charity.

Pattison, 28, went on the famous 60 km trail with fellow celebrity Chloe Madeley to raise money for Coppafeel, a charity aiming to increase awareness of breast cancer amongst young people and help them stand the best possible chance of surviving the disease.

But the iconic trail proved a little bit too much, reports contactmusic.com, with the reality TV star losing all feeling in her feet after the hike and having to make her return journey home in a wheelchair.

Pattison posted the picture below on Instagram with the following caption: “Smiling through the pain… My feet officially gave up and without alcohol to numb anything I can't even walk anymore… Iceland 1, Vicky 0. But it is all for an incredible cause… And if you haven't already, please donate to @coppafeelpeople at https://icelandcoppafeel.everydayhero.com/uk/vicky.”
