Charlotte Crosby only ventured into reality TV to get over ‘heartbreak’

Charlotte Crosby only went into reality TV to escape "heartbreak".
The former ‘Geordie Shore’ star has admitted she would probably have gone to university and gotten a "proper job" by now if she hadn’t decided to embark on a career in television.
The ‘Charlotte Show’ star told Metro.uk: "If I hadn’t gone on ‘Geordie Shore’ then I would have probably went to university and been in a proper job now.
"It was something I never really wanted to go into.
"I did it because I was going through heartbreak and I just wanted to do something to take my mind off the pain I was feeling."
And if she didn’t sign up for ‘Geordie Shore’, the 29-year-old beauty doubts she would have ventured in reality TV at all.
She added: "So I feel like if I hadn’t have gotten on ‘Geordie Shore’ then I wouldn’t have tried to do anything else like that again."
Although she was going through heartache, Charlotte says she wouldn’t have done ‘Love Island’, although she is enjoying the current series of the ITV2 dating show, in particular, hunky dancer Curtis Pritchard – the younger sibling of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ pro AJ Pritchard.
She said: "I enjoy watching Curtis [Pritchard] and his mannerisms and personality.
"I do enjoy Curtis but I don’t have any stand out favourites as of yet.
"I don’t not like anyone really, no one really makes that much of an impact on me yet."
Meanwhile, things appear to be getting serious between Charlotte and her boyfriend Joshua Ritchie, as she is "ready to start a family" with her 25-year-old partner.
Although her man is younger than her Charlotte says it "seems like he’s on board".
Quizzed on when she might get pregnant earlier this year, she replied: "Next year! Me and Josh.
"I would like to yes, I’m 29 this year so I’ll be 30 next year and I’m really ready to start a family."
When asked if the former ‘Love Island’ contestant is ready to be a dad, Charlotte replied: "He’s four years younger than me, we talk a lot about it and he seems like he’s on board."
Speculation was sparked that Charlotte – who was on ‘Geordie Shore’ from the first series in 2011 until 2016 – was pregnant after she posted a picture of herself cradling her tummy on Instagram, however, the brunette beauty insisted that she was simply trying to hide a bloated stomach.
She said: "I’m not pregnant no, I have a food intolerance to gluten and I get really bloated. We’d had a big meal and I’d had some bread, so I put my hand over my tummy just to hide it a little bit as I can’t control the bloating when it comes out and then all of a sudden I’m pregnant."
Charlotte split with fellow reality star Stephan Bear in December 2017.
