Charlotte Crosby proud of bruised bum
Charlotte Crosby wanted to show off her nasty injuries on Instagram earlier this year because her accident made her feel like she could handle anything
Charlotte Crosby wanted to prove how "hard" she was by posting pictures of her bruised bum on Instagram.
The 'Geordie Shore' star shocked fans earlier this year when she shared a montage of her mystery injuries, which included a nasty, purple-coloured swelling on each buttock, and has now revealed she was so proud of her ailments sustained during filming for her new TLC show 'The Charlotte Crosby Experience' that she felt compelled to strip off and flaunt them.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "They weren't filming it, which is a shame because I would love to watch it back. I had a little bit of an accident! I fell down a stone staircase and I split me arm open and I bruised me bum really badly.
"I wanted to show off about it because I felt like I was some kind of hard person. You know when people break their leg and they look really hard, I've never done anything like this before so was like, 'I'm whacking this on Instagram!' I wanted everyone to worry. I wanted to show people that I can handle anything."
Charlotte also set tongues waggling when she shared a snapshot of a red roses tattoo on her thigh, which people instantly likened to fellow Geordie Cheryl Cole's controversial inking, but the reality star admits she actually nicked the idea off Instagram.
The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' winner said: "I saw it on the Instagram popular page and copied it. That is literally all. I did that with me first tattoo as well.
"I know people are saying it's like Cheryl Cole's tattoo, but it was actually some really sexy girl's she was so slim and tanned with big, dark hair. She was wearing a bikini and she had these roses on the side of her hip. It looked so amazing."
But the party-mad brunette insists she won't be following in tattoo-obsessed celebrities like Harry Styles and Justin Bieber's footsteps.
She added: "I don't think I'm going to be getting any more tattoos now, these two will do it. It can go too far, that's it for me."
'The Charlotte Crosby Experience' airs Tuesdays at 9pm from April 29 on TLC.
