Geordie Shore's Gary thinks Charlotte should have kept her ectopic pregnancy "private".

Yesterday, Geordie Shore‘s Charlotte Crosby shared details of the life-threatening ectopic pregnancy she suffered eight weeks ago.

Charlotte said her debilitating loss coincided with the revelation her co-star and then-boyfriend, Gary ‘Gaz’ Beadle, had cheated on her whilst filming a reality TV show in Thailand.

Now, Gary has shared his side of the story, and discussed how he handled the news of Charlotte losing what would’ve been his first child.

"I remember Charlotte having cramp, but we didn't know why," the 28-year-old wrote in a blog post on the Daily StarA day after his on-again, off-again partner was experiencing abdominal pain, he was on a plane to film Ex on the Beach. That very first night, he had sex with an 'international tattoo model'.

"I got to Thailand, which you'll all get to watch soon, and you'll see I did talk about the situation. The first night, I got smashed and ended up in bed with someone. I'm not going to deny that.

"The next day, I was around the pool and got told I needed to take an emergency phone call. It was MTV saying that Charlotte had been rushed to hospital."

While Gary's initial thought was to go home and be with her, he says he changed his mind after a phone call which "calmed him down".

"Straight away, I was like, 'I need to go home immediately.' I was told I could speak to Charlotte, which calmed me down. Obviously, with her lying in bed back home, going through what I cannot even begin to imagine, I couldn't tell her what had just happened. My main concern was making sure she was okay.

"I spoke to Charlotte and she said she was surviving with her mam and friends nearby, that I was under contract to continue filming, and she told me stay out there."

Admittedly, the TV personality says he was not familiar with the term 'ectopic pregnancy', telling the publication: "I made sure every day I could speak to Charlotte at a certain time, to check in on her, ask what the doctors where (sic) saying, and if she had made progress. I didn't even know what an ectopic pregnancy was."

"We spoke every day until day six, when someone had told her about the first night, which I did not want to come out while I was over there. I wanted to tell her myself. Let's face it, I couldn't have kept it a secret. It was on camera."

But now TV's famed bad boy, who has been a regular on Geordie Shore since its heyday and has had sex on camera for years, says he thinks Charlotte should have kept the matter private.

"Both my management and Charlotte's agreed we wouldn't do any interviews or talk about this horrible situation. I hadn't planned to anyway. I've never talked about Charlotte really, even when repeatedly asked to respond to things she's said about me. Until now.

"Only a handful of my closest friends knew. At the end of the day, I was going to be a dad. We were going to be parents, then this happened. It's bloody awful. I am devastated for the both of us.

"... Rightly or wrongly, for me some things need to remain private. That may sound weird for someone who's had sex on TV, but that's the way it is."

As for the pair who can never seem to make it work, the latest devastation means that things are now over for good. For Gary, it's a bitter pill to swallow.

"After five years of knowing Charlotte, I am devastated it's all ended like this. She's right, there's no coming back from it. I wish her all the best and hope she finds someone in the next chapter of her life. I'm sorry it ended the way it did."
