How Charlotte Crosby found love with Jake Ankers after disastrous TV romances, being dumped on Twitter and baby tragedy

SHE'S had more than her fair share of heartbreak over the years, and it's often played out very publicly on reality TV.

But now, it seems Charlotte Crosby has finally found her happy ending after she this week announced she was pregnant and expecting a baby with her publicity-shy boyfriend, Jake Ankers.

The wonderful news follows years of rollercoaster romances, with the former Geordie Shore star's love life often unravelling after stints on shows ranging from I'm A Celeb to Ex On The Beach.

From an ectopic pregnancy tragedy to being dumped on Twitter, here we take a look at the 31-year-old's long road to finding happiness.

Gaz Beadle

The most high profile – and arguably the most turbulent – romance Charlotte had was with Geordie Shore co-star Gaz, who now has two kids with wife Emma McVey.

The pair got together in 2011 after meeting on the show, but Gaz refused to commit and when the pair did eventually become an item, it ended in a hugely bitter break-up.

In 2016, after the pair had appeared to be getting back on track, Charlotte suffered a devastating and life-threatening ectopic pregnancy.

However, heartbreakingly Gaz had flown out to Thailand to film Ex On The Beach – and ultimately decided to stay on the show rather than fly home.

The move resulted in Charlotte quitting Geordie Shore and vowing never to speak to her ex again.

Mitch Jenkins

Charlotte dated Mitch Jenkins two times – the first time in 2013 before he ended the relationship by text.

They reignited their romance in 2015 and went on holiday to New York together, with Charlotte even having his initial tattooed on her arm. Sadly, it still didn't work out.

Speaking about the second split, Charlotte said: "It was a mutual decision – we're still on talking terms and we're still really good friends so it's nothing drastic yet but we're having some time apart.

"That's about it."

Max Morley

Reality star Max rose to fame after winning Love Island in 2015 with Jessica Hayes, and started dating Charlotte later that same year.

However, things ended just four months later after she was pictured kissing her old flame, Gaz.

Max said at the time: "I saw it coming, Gary clicks his fingers and Charlotte comes running back.

"Gary just uses Charlotte like a piece of string, and she's a mug for going along with it.”

Ash Harrison 

Charlotte dated Big Brother star and model Ash for five months after getting together in July 2016.

Following their break-up, Ash unfollowed Charlotte on Twitter and Instagram and later posted a cryptic tweet.

He wrote: “If someone purposely, constantly disrespects you, they aren't a good person. Simple.”

Stephen Bear 

Charlotte went on to date Celebrity Big Brother and Shipwrecked reality TV star Stephen Bear in March 2017.

They got together while co-hosting an MTV show, Just Tattoo of Us, and as a result he was kicked off Celebs Go Dating.

The pair split later the same year however, with Stephen tweeting: “Sadly me and Charlotte have split up.

“We have had a good run but we wasn’t right for each other.”

It was later revealed Charlotte had no idea she’d been dumped however – and only found out when she logged on to Twitter.

Joshua Ritchie 

Later that same year Charlotte started dating Ex On The Beach star Joshua Ritchie. The pair had a relatively long-term romance and even discussed marriage and babies.

However, Charlotte announced their split in 2019 saying: "Me and Josh have decided to part ways.

"Sadly the relationship seems to have broken down. Hoping we can still remain civil and wish him the best for the future."

However she later hit out at her ex after he was reported to have signed up for Celebs Go Dating, branding him a "f***ing toe rag".

Ryan Gallagher

Charlotte met and began dating Australian Ryan Gallagher in 2020, when they both appeared on the Australian version of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Ryan rose to fame on Married At First Sight so the pair had a lot in common with their reality TV backgrounds.

Sadly, their relationship hit the rocks soon after leaving the jungle camp, with Charlotte admitting she wasn't ready for a relationship.

Ryan also said: "While we were great in there, when we got out reality hit pretty quickly.

"It was clear it was never going to work." 

Liam Beaumont

Charlotte and videographer Liam started dating in February 2020, and were together during lockdown, until October last year.

The pair met in Dubai through DJ Chris Wright while Charlotte was on holiday with the Geordie Shore girls.

He later moved in with the reality TV star, however the pair had a series of furious bust ups and by August last year it was all over.

Jake Ankers

Charlotte Crosby vowed she would stay single following her split from Liam, but this didn't last long, and the star is now madly in love with Mancunian businessman Jake.

The pair went official with their romance in January, and a now-smitten Charlotte announced their happy news with a video of her finding out she was expecting.

Charlotte wrote alongside the post: “A moment I wasn’t sure would ever be mine Is here, it’s mine (and Jakes) and i couldn’t be happier to be sharing it with you all……Im having a baby.”
