SHE is known as the love­able lar­rikin on the re­al­ity tele­vi­sion show Ge­ordie Shore, but de­spite all the fame and at­ten­tion, Char­lotte Crosby’s feet re­main firmly planted on the ground.

The 24-year-old was in Perth for a fleet­ing visit ear­lier this month as part of her five-week tour of Australia and New Zealand where she will be mak­ing public ap­pear­ances and launch­ing her cloth­ing la­bel Nos­tal­gia.

Re­turn­ing to Perth next month, she will form part of the line-up sched­uled for un­der 18 mu­sic fes­ti­val Good Life and make a public ap­pear­ance at Me­trop­o­lis Fre­man­tle, two things she said she was ex­cited to be a part of.

“It’s my third time to Perth and fourth time to Australia, but I’m so ex­cited be­cause I’m here for such a long time this time and I’ve got so much more go­ing on,” Crosby said.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to com­ing back in March be­cause to be hon­est, this is the first ac­tual day I have spent in Perth, the other three times have been fly-in, fly-out in the mid­dle of the morn­ing.

“I’ve never been to this mu­sic fes­ti­val be­fore so I’m ex­cited that I get to go while I’m here.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing Avicii per­form and to be able to at­tend a fes­ti­val like Good Life is like a dream.”

Hav­ing just fin­ished film­ing se­ries 10 of the re­al­ity tele­vi­sion show, Crosby said she never imag­ined living her cur­rent life­style and “pinched her­self” when­ever she looked at how far she had come.

“I don’t know how I feel about it all, some­times it still doesn’t feel like it’s real,” she said.

“I go with the mo­tions but when I do look back I never thought I would be here to­day.

“We all planned to get nor­mal jobs af­ter the first se­ries.”

While here, Crosby said she hoped to tick a few more things off her Aus­tralian wish list, in­clud­ing white-wa­ter raft­ing, quad bik­ing and whale-watch­ing.

“The weather is so nice and the peo­ple here are like us Geordies, they are out­go­ing and dead friendly - it’s the per­fect place to visit, it has ev­ery­thing you want in a hol­i­day,” she said.

As for the fu­ture, she said she was look­ing for­ward to more se­ries of the show and

She added fans could ex­pect a com­pletely dif­fer­ent se­ries to nine.

“All the happy fairy tales go­ing on in nine are to­tally gone,” she said.

“I think it was a case of I was sin­gle at the time and try­ing to get over Mitch and went through a crazy time, but it’s def­i­nitely over be­tween Gary and I.”
