Lateysha Grace has bagged her own reality TV show on MTV after she flashed her bottom to the nation last year
Lateysha Grace has landed her own reality TV show.
The 24-year-old television personality hit the headlines last year when her dress ripped live on air and she flashed her bum crack to the nation but, although she was "mortified" at the time, the incident has managed to bag her a mega-money deal.
A source told The Sun Online: "MTV have now commissioned a full series of Lateysha's own show and she's set to make a fortune.
"She's over the moon - but it's ironic that it's all come about from that dress split which she was so mortified about at the time. MTV knew they wanted to get her back on telly and had two options: whether to give her a show on her own or bring back 'The Valleys'.
"But eventually they decided she was always the star of the show and they wanted to try out a new format with her as the focus."
Lateysha first shot to fame in 2012 when she appeared on 'The Valley's, which saw her and a group of other young people move to Cardiff in Wales to pursue their dreams, but she fell out of the limelight when the show was axed in 2014 after just three series.
However, the brunette beauty managed to relaunch her career last year when she was chosen to enter the 'Big Brother' house and subsequently made a name for herself when she was grilled by Rylan Clark-Neal on the spin-off show 'Big Brother's Bit on the Side' and flashed her derriere to the cameras while attempting to twerk.
A source said at the time: "She's put on 21lbs in the house!! Gorging on the food and not doing any exercise. She's already booked a load of personal training sessions - she's so mortified and she hates the way she looks now she's put on weight."
