Charlotte Crosby has given an interview with Heat magazine where she has spoken for the first time about the horrific pain she endured while suffering from an ectopic pregnancy.
The 25 year old reality TV star from Geordie Shore revealed she fell pregnant with ex-boyfriend Gary Beadle’s child.
While Charlotte was going though the ordeal her ex Gary, was filming another reality show called Ex on the Beach. While there he cheated on Charlotte with her rival Jemma Lucy as well as taking part in a threesome. Nice.
Charlotte said the pains first started while she was filming Geordie Shore: Big Birthday Battle last month.
“I thought I had a really bad period because I was bleeding and cramping – I can’t describe the pain, it was awful,” Charlotte told the magazine.
Gary was due to fly out to film Ex on the Beacthe next day, and Charlotte admitted they were the best they’d ever been at the time.
“We’d had a couple of fall-outs, but we were the closest we’d ever been,” she added.
Charlotte admitted she wasn’t on the contraceptive pill although she did take the morning after pill – but waited until almost the end of the recommended 72-hour window.
The pain of the cramps was so bad that she was put in a wheelchair, but admitted she “collapsed” out of it due to the pain, and struggled not to cry in agony.
Charlotte said: “I didn’t know what the hell was going on and I was in so much pain. Then the X-ray showed how much damage had been caused. Because I’d left it a week, it’d torn open my fallopian tube and I was bleeding internally. He said: ‘If you’d have left it any longer, you could have died.'”
The reality star had to have an emergency operation to remove the damaged fallopian tube.
When Charlotte eventually told Gary over the phone about the operation she admitted he was a huge support (this was before she found out he had slept with the other women!)
Admitting she was “really in love” with him, Charlotte said Gary reassured her they’d continue trying for children together. Their relationship is currently in the ‘it’s complicated’ section.
(Charlotte chose to donate the money from the interview to the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust and St John and Elizabeth Hospice.)
