Former Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison is often refreshingly honest on her Instagram page and her latest holiday snaps are no different.
The star, 33, is currently enjoying a sunny holiday in Croatia and taking the opportunity to get real about bikini shots on Instagram.
Posting a series of photos of herself looking super tanned in a tiger print bikini, Vicky showed off close ups her stomach rolls and stretch marks to show the "real" her behind a perfect looking bikini photo.
The star, who is happily loved up with boyfriend Ercan Ramadan, wrote alongside the photos: "This is just a gentle reminder that Instagram isn’t real… Instagram is a place where people predominantly come to share fancy filtered, careful curated glimpses into their ‘perfect’ lives… and there is nothing wrong with that. But what you don’t see is the 600 other pictures that didn’t make the cut and the 417 other locations they tried before they found the right one."
Vicky continued: "I truly don’t see the harm in people wanting to look good on their Instagram- it’s human nature to want to feel cute and attractive! But the danger comes when we allow that one image of someone we don’t even know to alter how we see ourselves and affect our self worth."
The star went on to say that "no one" walks around in real life "staring at the sea like a t*** with their legs angled like that."
She continued: "It’s b******s! (Full disclosure: this first image was actually very painful on the knees.)"
Former I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! winner Vicky continued: "I think it’s more accurate to say on holiday we look far more like the other ones- i mean, I know I do!!! I sweat, I whinge i’m hot, I have shaving rash or sneaky stray hairs that I’ve missed in my last minute pre holiday speed shave, I have stretch marks, cellulite, tiger stripes and rolls… but you would never know it from the posey pics I post would you?! But that’s the nature of social media for you."
The star rallied her followers with a positive reminder, adding: "Don’t allow someone’s contrived holiday snaps, perfectly angled body and posh apps to affect how you feel about your body!
"You are enough exactly as you are… Stop pulling yourself apart, comparing yourself to people online and thinking their grass is greener… Their grass isn’t greener… that’s just an Instagram filter

"Hope you all are a little bit kinder to yourselves after reading this… I’m off to go and out some Savlon on me knees, as I wasn’t kidding about those rocks."
The post comes shortly after Vicky has been confirmed to be on the line up of this year's Celebrity SAS, alongside Kerry Katona and Jake Quickenden.
Vicky has also been spotted sporting a new hair do recently, after admitting she worried her new style made her look "like an egg."
