Former Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby has opened up about the reason behind her split from her boyfriend of two years Joshua Ritchie.

The 29-year-old is currently starring in the Australian version of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! after claiming she kept being declined from the UK show because she was a "reality TV star."

Speaking to her fellow campmates, including Married At First Sight star Ryan Gallagher, Charlotte confessed, "I recently split up with my boyfriend of two years and it has been a pretty bad break-up.

"I'd go to work every day, have late nights and travel around everywhere, and he would be sat playing his PlayStation."

However, the ex-girlfriend of Gary Beadle was then forced to defend Joshua, after Ryan responded, "Why would you want a guy who pumps Botox in his face, straightens his hair every five minutes?"

Charlotte Crosby's ex-boyfriends

As a fresh-faced 18 year old un-corrupted by booze (maybe), Charlotte vowed she "would never kiss anyone without a six pack" when she first appeared on Geordie Shore, and following her love life – and stellar career – over the best part of a decade, she's certainly a woman of her word (although we had our doubts about Mitch). It's fair to say she's had her fare share of heartbreak, and wasted a few too many years pining after Gaz and his parsnip. But it was good while it lasted (sometimes), so we're looking back over Char's past lovers for a trip down a distinctly blurry memory lane...

Charlotte quickly shut down Ryan, saying Joshua didn't use Botox but admitted she tried several times to get him to.

Obviously moved by their conversation, Charlotte then spoke in the Bush Telegraph, saying, "Ryan thinks I always pick the wrong kind of people and I do think that is kind of true.

"I think that I'm my own worst enemy - I'm dangerous to myself. I'll be walking out of [the jungle] with a baboon by the end of this and trying to marry it."

Charlotte's candid confession came a day after she broke down in tears after finding out she had to bungee jump out of a helicopter.

The reality legend did get into the helicopter, but as it was setting flight, she could be heard shouting, "I can't do it. I'm so scared. Oh, God. Why did I ever agree to come on the show?

"I don't want to do it. I've never wanted to not do something more in my life. Oh God!"

When speaking to the camera back on dry land, Charlotte confessed, "I just couldn't do it. I don't know how any of them have done that. You've literally got to have a death wish. I've actually wet myself."

Classic Charlotte – and that's why we love her.
