Posting a collection of throwback pictures with her late best friend Paul, the former Geordie Shore star penned: ‘I will always really miss you Paul, we all will.’ 

In the lengthy heartfelt post, Vicky added: ‘Happy Birthday to my Best Friend. 

‘In these moments of heartbreaking grief, I remember the only reason we have an empty space is because we were blessed with someone who loved us so beautifully it occupied an entire part of our soul and that brings me some solace.

‘I don’t know if I expected things to get easier as I got older and more time passed since we lost you but it doesn’t.. And I have to remind myself that grief is the price we must pay for loving someone worth losing.’

Vicky emotionally continued: ‘Grief is after all just love with nowhere to go. It’s all the love you want to give but cannot. 

‘All that unspent love gathers in the corners of your eyes, in the lump in your throat and the hallow part of your chest. In whatever form it takes Paul, we’ll never stop loving you..’

Vicky said that she was marking Paul’s birthday by remembering all of their ‘amazing’ memories, ‘laughing’ about their good times and ‘cringing’ over their past wardrobe.

She added: ‘I’m spending today remembering all of our amazing memories, laughing about the good times, cringing about some of our style decisions (I honestly don’t even know how to explain what was happening in slide 8).

‘Feeling incredibly lucky to have ever known such an amazing person and mostly just really missing you… I will always really miss you Paul, we all will.

‘I hope they’re throwing you a shindig good enough for the king of the Newcastle up there petal.. Im sure you’ll have everyone laughing like you always did..’

Vicky emotionally signed off her post with: ‘We miss you and love you Burnsy son, and we always will. Happy Birthday.’ 

In June, the TV personality paid tribute to Paul on the second anniversary of his tragic death.  

Paul had finished his shift at The Botanist at around 11pm on June 1 2018, before going out with pals in the city centre, but an inquest heard that the evening ended in tragedy when the 37-year-old collapsed.

Coroner Karen Dilks said in the early hours of June 2 2018, Paul was seen by a member of the public ‘sitting on a wall and appeared to be swaying with his head in his hands’. 

‘A short time later he was seen lying unresponsive on the pavement,’ she said.

Paramedics attended the scene and attempted to resuscitate him, but their efforts were unsuccessful.

Ms Dilks said a post-mortem examination showed no obvious signs of natural disease. She said a toxicology report confirmed the presence of MDMA – also known as ecstasy – in his system.
