Charlotte Crosby was born to parents Letitia and Gary in 1990. She has a younger brother named Nathaniel, who has Asperger’s.

Before rising to fame, Charlotte attended St Anthony’s Girls’ School. She achieved good GCSEs and A Levels and had plans to study criminology at university.

Charlotte worked at Sunderland bar Ttonic but quit when she was chosen to appear in MTV reality show Geordie Shore in 2011.

The programme saw Charlotte and her co-stars move into a house together, where cameras documented their drunken and sexual antics on raucous nights out.

Charlotte was a hit with viewers and fans were hooked on her on-off relationship with love interest Gary ‘Gaz’ Beadle.

Geordie Shore was a huge success and spawned spin-offs that saw Charlotte and her cast mates jet to countries including Spain, Australia and Mexico.

However, the show has caused controversy since its first episode. Charlotte’s been filmed farting and weeing in bed with Gaz and drunkenly getting it on with him in a hot tub.

In August 2013, Charlotte Crosby entered the Celebrity Big Brother house. Her housemates included TOWIE hunk Mario Falcone, Sophie Anderton and Saved By The Bell’s Dustin Diamond.

Charlotte proved popular with the public and was crowned the winner a month later.

It was announced in January 2014 that Charlotte had landed her own show on TLC. The Charlotte Crosby Experience saw her spend time in unique cultures, such as the Indian royal household.

She travelled to the Arctic Circle to meet Inuits and tried being a geisha in Japan.

Unfortunately, things haven’t always been so positive for Charlotte. In 2012, she was handed a driving ban after pleading guilty to drink driving.

In her personal life, Charlotte Crosby finally managed to end her and Gaz’s unstable romance and started dated property developer Mitchell Jenkins in 2013.

The pair seemed loved-up until she revealed that he’d ended things with her in September 2014.

She’d previously been in a relationship with Scott Young but they split in 2012.
