Charlotte Crosby has said she wants to see ‘normal people off the street’ appear on Love Island, while slamming the current beauty standards on television as ‘f**ed’.
The star, 32, who rose to fame on Geordie Shore, wants to see greater diversity on the ITV show, insisting it would be more gripping if viewers were able to watch ordinary folk like Coronation Street’s Fiz and Tyrone ‘genuinely fall in love with each other’.
She told the Daily Star Sunday: ‘Love Island would be better if they had different kinds of people, 100 per cent the beauty standards on TV now are f**ed.

Charlotte, who first appeared on MTV’s Geordie Shore 11 years ago, admitted she would never have made it onto Love Island as she is the opposite of what she thinks the show’s producers look for.
‘There wouldn’t be a chance in hell we would get on it,’ she exclaimed, adding that fans loved Charlotte and her female co-stars because they were ‘ordinary girls’.
It comes after Charlotte, who is expecting her first baby, said she is yet to ’embrace’ her pregnancy after the reality star’s mother was diagnosed with breast cancer.

She told MailOnline she’s been so ‘worried’ by Letitia’s health that she hasn’t thought about giving birth, a life-changing moment, which will be filmed for her upcoming BBC series.
In an exclusive interview, Charlotte revealed the pair have spent ‘the whole of her pregnancy’ consumed by Letitia’s diagnosis, but the arrival of her newborn will give her mum, who started chemotherapy last week, a much-needed boost in happiness.
‘I’m going to be filming all the way up until I give birth and I will be filming the birth.

‘I feel really calm about it because this show is completely different to anything I’ve ever filmed before. It’s really relaxed, and it’s really calm, it’s so much like a fly-on-the-wall that sometimes I don’t even notice that I’m filming so I’m fine.
‘I’ve got my mam and I’m going to chemotherapy with her, she just started last week. I’m too busy worrying about my mam so giving birth hasn’t even entered my mind.
‘We were saying this morning that it’s so weird to think that she got diagnosed with cancer while I was pregnant – it’s literally been the whole of my pregnancy so we haven’t embraced it as much as we could have but when the baby arrives, she’ll be really happy.’

Charlotte is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Jake Ankers, who she’s been dating for a year.
The TV personality told her former Geordie Shore co-stars about her pregnancy on camera during filming of The Reunion, MTV’s new series that follows returning cast members who have all entered new phases in their lives.
She agreed to take part alongside close friends Holly Hagan, Sophie Kasaei, and Marnie Simpson, because the new series is worlds away from their former partying days, where Charlotte became famous for wetting herself while intoxicated.

Charlotte said: ‘When we first started filming, I think I was about seven weeks pregnant. I was very early on. I told the girls on camera.
‘I would never go back to Geordie Shore as it was when we were on it – this is the reunion show. I agreed to do this series because it’s a totally different kettle of fish.
‘It’s filmed differently, we are making the reunion show, which is where we all reunite and we see people that we haven’t seen for years, sort out differences, it’s not about the partying or drinking or anything like that.
‘It was relatively easy for me to film while being pregnant the whole way through.’
