Her Mercedes crashed after mum Sheryl's birthday party

Bianca Gascoigne has been charged with drink driving following an incident in September.

The Love Island winner’s £35,000 Mercedes SLK sports car was involved in an accident with a red Honda Civic in Hemel Hempstead.

She was driving to her boyfriend’s house, after celebrating her mum Sheryl’s 42nd birthday.

Bianca suffered minor injuries and is reported to have collapsed when the police arrived. She was taken to hospital but later arrested on suspicion of being over the drink-drive limit.

The 21-year-old answered bail at a police station in Hertfordshire on Tuesday, where she was charged.

‘She knows she’s a role model and needs to be squeaky-clean,’ a pal tells the Daily Star. ‘It’s an embarrassment to be charged, but she’s facing up to the situation like an adult.’

Bianca is expected to appear before West Herts Magistrates on 13 November.
