CHARLOTTE CATCHES A BREAK
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.”
