"My bum hole ripped.” Charlotte Crosby told me exactly what happens to your body after I'm a Celeb.

Some reality TV contestants leave their respective shows with cash prizes and tarnished reputations. Charlotte Crosby left hers with a bleeding anus and a new love interest.

She’d also be the first one to tell you that she’s not the tiniest bit ashamed of either (and nor should she be) and it’s this unfiltered approach to discussing life, love and bodily functions that has endeared her to a legion of fans, building a successful career on simply being herself.

The 29-year-old first rose to fame in 2011 as a cast member on the popular reality series Geordie Shore, before going on to appear in many other reality-based programs while also working as an influencer, radio star, author, entrepreneur and charity ambassador.

From the moment she first appeared on this year’s season of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! she began grabbing headlines.

Initially for her refusal to jump out of a helicopter (fair) and then due to her romantic relationship with Married At First Sight star Ryan Gallagher , a love that sprung up on camera in the celebrity-filled camp alongside gruesome challenges and a fair bit of starvation.

However, in this age of never-ending reality TV offerings and deep distrust, fans are wary of jumping on any kind of fairytale TV bandwagon.  So as their relationship progressed, fans – potentially feeling a little carried away after consuming one too many true crime podcasts – decided they smelled a love rat.

Their evidence included the fact that they both appear to share the same Australian talent agency and that they had chosen to allegedly partake in a little bit of Instagram flirting and DM sliding before entering the jungle.

So of course, that was the first question I put to Charlotte when I spoke to her the day after her elimination from the I’m A Celebrity… camp, and it’s safe to say that she’s deeply disappointed in all of us for ever doubting her.

“I would never lie or put anything on, I am such a real person,” she told me passionately over the phone from South Africa, “…with real emotions and I have never been anyone but myself. I wear my heart on my sleeve and I could never lie.

“So the fact that people are saying this a ‘showmance’, well I am very disappointed in them, do they even know me at all?

“I fall in love and then I get my heartbroken. Give this relationship six months and I’ll probably be crying my bloody eyes out, but you know what? I fancy that boy because he’s got a good set of arms and he’s very tanned and listen…I’ve seen the erection, and it’s quite big.

“I’ve just come out of a serious relationship, have then been shoved in the jungle with an Adonis and you think it’s all a showmance? I’m disappointed in you Laura, actually, for even asking me.”

Fair enough.

Charlotte then went on to say that not only is her romance with the Australian reality TV star the real deal but that they've even had a few casual chats about future procreation.

"With me and Ryan, we are going to see how things go, but I really like him," she said. "Obviously me living in England is a real problem, but we’re both very ready for children so I’ll probably be pregnant by the end of the year.

"We spent last night together, but we haven’t had sex yet if that’s really what you’re trying to ask.

"I’ve got a big case of thrush in my vagina and my mum comes tonight, so I need to spend some time with my mum, I did come out of her womb.

"I need to tell her how much she means to us. So maybe the sex with Ryan might come on Sunday."

The toll that partaking in I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! has on contestant's bodies has been well documented over the years, with many contestants speaking about the rapid weight loss and lack of food.

But Charlotte took it one step further and in a refreshingly candid way, was happy to detail the extreme way the reality show can mess with your body.

"I am shitting through the eye of a needle," Charlotte said on The Spill. "It’s coming out like there is no tomorrow and I never know when it’s going to come. It’s very spontaneous when I’m on the toilet, I tell you God knows what’s going to happen.

"I have never shit so much in my life. But it feels nice to get it all out. Like all the negativity in my body is just coming out through my bum hole.

“The poo has been so big that my bum hole, it ripped, and it’s been bleeding ever since. I’ve got a bleeding bum hole with all the blood coming out.

"Because you see, I like anal as well and so it’s really affecting me."

Now that she's wrapped her time in the jungle, Charlotte is planning to spend her time in Australia and said she would even be keen to try her hand at another Aussie reality TV show, although she ruled out anything like The Bachelorette, stating vehemently that she absolutely "hates dating shows."

Let's all hope her future does lie on Australian TV because if this interview has taught us anything in life, it's that Charlotte Crosby is a gift to reality TV.
