Vicky Pattison has been advised to step away from her social media channels following the demise of her engagement to fiancé John Noble.
Relationship expert Kate Mansfield claimed that blocking an ex partner and keeping a ‘dignified silence’ are good remedies for moving on from a split.
It comes after Vicky shared a sultry snap to Instagram of her posing on a staircase wearing nothing but a nude bodysuit.
In the caption the newly single reality star poked fun at clichéd ‘new me’ social media posts after a break-up.
Alongside her saucy pic Vicky sarcastically wrote: "Insert irrelevant quote about strength, self improvement or something by Gandhi."

31-year-old Vicky further poked fun at her new single status by sharing a video of her stylist rubbing fake tan into her thigh. "This is the most action I’m getting a while," she quipped.
But despite Vicky’s jovial manner, relationship adviser Kate said she’d be better off keeping a dignified silence.
She advised: "Definitely stay off social media – it will make you seem much more dignified and mature than your ex.
"When we are in pain we can often act out in ways that we regret and it’s crucial to remember that often posts can’t be undone, especially when you have a huge following like Vicky.
"I would also recommend blocking and unfriending your ex completely and going no contact. The less you see of them the quicker you will heal and be able to get some perspective and distance from the whole thing."

Vicky called time on her two year romance with businessman John earlier this month after he was caught grinding with another woman during a holiday to Dubai.
After keeping silent for days, Vicky eventually shared her heartbreak in an emotional social media post.
She wrote: "The worst thing is not the lies, the betrayal, the constant pain or crippling humiliation, or the resounding heartbreak that hurts so much I swear it is physical not emotional, the worst thing is that the person who made you feel so special yesterday can make you feel so truly low and unwanted today. "
Vicky said she’d been humiliated by John’s antics
Relationship expert Kate said that although Vicky was hurting, it was important she didn’t blame herself for what happened.
She said: "Despite how this feels this is never about you it is always about your partners insecurity or emotional problems, so remember, do not attach this to your own worth or value.
"People cheat to get power, validate themselves and to feel wanted and desired.
"It is not because they don’t love you or value you. The reasons underlying this behaviour are complex and need professional help to resolve," she advised.
Kate also said for other people coping in the aftermath of a break-up: "Be gentle on yourself, take time out, be honest and tell people if you don’t want to talk about it,"
