A member of the MTV reality show Geordie Shore has admitted two counts of assault after she hurled her shoes at a woman in a bar in Newcastle last summer.

Vicky Pattison, 25, was in Florita's Bar when she mistakenly thought ice had been thrown at her by an 18-year-old woman in a nearby booth, sparking an argument. One of her shoes hit the teenager; the other hit a security guard.

In mitigation, her barrister said she did not mean to injure her and had admitted it was a reckless act.

Granting her bail, the judge said he would sentence her next month but told Pattison that she would not face jail.

Pattison was suspended from the MTV show over the incident.
