Charlotte Crosby: 2016 was 'traumatic year'
Charlotte Crosby revealed that she is pleased to see the back of 2016, but admitted is has been a "learning curve" as she hopes to find Mr Right
Charlotte Crosby has branded 2016 the "most traumatic year of her life."
The former 'Geordie Shore' beauty never wants to relive last year after she suffered an ectopic pregnancy, split from her on/off boyfriend Gary 'Gaz' Beadle on bitter terms and turned her back on the boozy MTV show for good, but believes the bad times she experienced have been a "learning curve" and have made her "stronger."
She said of last year: "It's been a learning curve - so much has happened that it's made me stronger. I've learnt that I can cope with so much more than I ever thought I could. It's made me realise I should never have to put up with crap, and it's made me know my own worth. It was definitely the most traumatic year of my life so far."
Her heartbreaking split from Gaz has made her re-evaluate her choices in men and she has warned girls that they shouldn't be "too nice" to guys when they first start dating.
She told heat magazine: "Yeah, just be a b****! I'm joking. Don't be too nice, too soon. If they make time for you to be in their life that's a sign of a good person. If they send you flowers ... Oh, no that's not true - Gary once sent me flowers. OK, I think them really prioritising you is one of the main signs. If, on a Monday, they're already planning the weekend with you, that's a sign that someone wants you to be around."
Charlotte recently sparked rumours she was dating Stephen Bear after they were spotted getting up close and personal but she's adamant they're just "friends."
She said of her and the 'Celebrity Big Brother' winner: "We're just very good friends."
