Chloe Ferry has admitted to skiving school as a kid because she was "embarrassed" that she couldn't read and write
Chloe Ferry skipped school because she was "embarrassed" that she couldn't read and write.
The 21-year-old reality star admits she had a tough time at school and would skive regularly because she struggled to keep up the pace with her classmates.
She said: "I didn't really enjoy school. I had a bit of a bad time there because I found it very hard to read and write. So I would skive school a lot.
"I went to high school, I had to do an extra year to do my GCSEs. But I didn't like it there. I felt a bit embarrassed that I was [behind] at school. I found it harder to learn than other school kids. I felt awful."
And now she is older and her reading and writing skills have improved, Chloe has a big passion for learning.
She told The Sun Online: "I can read and write now but it's not the best reading. If I read the book and came across a big word I would have to be really slowly and half it off and get help ...
"Now I like to learn about stuff, when people talk about the Victorian times I am always listening, because now I feel I am capable of listening and learning like stuff about dinosaurs."
Meanwhile, Chloe previously admitted she didn't have enough money for lunch before 'Geordie Shore'.
She said: "Before 'Geordie Shore', we didn't have much money. My mum is a single parent ...
"When I went to college I didn't even have lunch money sometimes because it was so hard to get. She was a single parent so she brought me up all by herself."
However, since finding fame with the MTV show, Chloe has been raking in her own money but prefers to save it rather than spend it.
She added: "Obviously, I've got a bit of money now, but I know now to be wise with my money. I'll always save it.
"I'm really clued up with my business because of it. It's not been an awful background but a bad background to know and I know what I need to do now to make money."
