Fallon was born Vicky Fallon O'Neill on 3 June 1984 on a military base in Germany to parents Royal Air Force Squadron leader Stephen O'Neill and Debra O'Neill. At 8 years old Fallon was sent to Fyling hall school as a full-time boarder where she showed an early talent for music (writing and singing) art and sciences and a passion for horses and nature. Fallon wrote her first album at the age of 11.
At the age of 16 Fallon was signed by president and owner of Curb Records Mike Curb as part of a 3 part girlband called Smoke 2 Seven. Smoke 2 Seven signed a 7 album deal and the group enlisted ex London Records MD Laurie Cokell as their manager. S2S toured with Daniel Bedingfield, released two U.K. singles "Been There Done That" (UK 26) and "Envy" (UK 70). Fallon left the band in 2002. After being released from her contract with Curb Records Fallon returned to London and began working as a session singer and songwriter, working for Disney, Pixar, Alesha Dixon, Alsou and various other pop acts. In 2001 Fallon was booked to appear at an R.A.F tattoo event which involved flying in on a helicopter with ex 5ive member and popstar Abz Love.
In 2007 Fallon was caught up in a controversy when The Sunday Mirror newspaper ran a front page headline accusing Scooch had used two hidden 'ghost singers' as part of their performance on Eurovision: Making Your Mind Up with the implication that this had given the group an advantage over rival entrants, although this was perfectly allowed. This led to accusations of miming. Fallon was one of the two hidden singers.
In 2006 O'Neill dropped her surname and began performing as 'Vicky Fallon.' Fallon wrote and recorded a debut album with Cornwall-based producer and songwriter Gareth Young. During this time Fallon also co-wrote “Shake It” for the Sugababes. The song appears on the B-side of the single Easy (2006). Fallon was offered a deal by Matthew Knowles, father and manager of Beyoncé. In December 2007, following several crisis meetings, Fallon parted ways with Matthew Knowles and left Music World.
In 2008 Fallon started to work with the record label Eye Industries. She wrote a collection of tracks for other dance artists with DJ & producer Alan Braxe. She is featured along with Killa Kella on Alan Braxe’s song Nightwatcher, which received solid airplay on Radio 1 and enjoyed relative success on the UK underground. Fallon's debut album caught the attention of 2point9 and they set about developing her as a solo artist. Fallon co-wrote with Jersey-based super producers Ray Hedges and Nigel Butler before abandoning the project in 2009 to focus on her partner Abz Love.
In 2009 Abz Love reconnected with Fallon via Myspace. They started dating shortly after and began songwriting and producing tracks for other artists. Fallon took a hitaus from performing to focus on supporting Love back to health. Fallon became Love's manager in late 2009. She has navigated Love's career through ITV2's the Big Reunion, Celebrity Big Brother 12, and most recently with BBC two for the couple's hit documentary series 'Country Strife : Abz on the Farm'.
In August 2015, Country Stife: Abz on the Farm aired BBC two. Series one featured three 30 minutes episodes. The show follow Fallon and partner Abz Love's journey throughout 2014 as they purchased a dilapidated smallholding and navigated the highs and lows of adjusting to rural life on a budget.The show was produced by Andrea Cornes of Tin Can Island and commissioned by Tom MacDonald. Many felt BBC Two were taking a risk in introducing Love to their audience and were criticised heavily for it. But the show was an unexpected success and even secured a Christmas special Country Strife: Abz on the Christmas farm which aired on Boxing day 2015.
Abz on the farm Sam Wollaston (TV critic for The Guardian) - "It’s perfect, from a TV point of view if not as a first attempt as self-sufficiency. Can this really be real, or is it mockumentary? Whichever, it’s hilarious and brilliant."
Ellen E Jones (TV critic for The Independent) - Abz Love is a star (re)born. BBC2 isn’t usually associated with reality television, but it was immediately obvious why commissioners had made this exception. Gerald O'Donavan (TV critic for the telegraph) states "Abz on the Farm was abzolutely hilarious."
In 2013, Fallon started a YouTube channel where she posts a mix of covers and original songs. She has had over 166,000 views on her videos.

In December 2015 Fallon launched an official blog charting the couple's progress following on from their documentary series Abz on the farm. The Abzonthefarm blog can be found here.
