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.
