The former 'Geordie Shore' star has admitted it's her "dream" to become a mother and she'd like to start trying to fall pregnant with her boyfriend Josh Ritchie - whom she's been dating since late later year - at some point in 2019.

Speaking to Closer magazine, she said: "I don't want to be an old mum, I want to be a cool young mum. Having a family is the one thing in life I really want - I've done so much with my life already, and becoming a mum is my dream."

But the 28-year-old beauty doesn't just want the baby as she'd also like to get married because she's always seen herself living the "fairytale."

She explained: "I can see myself marrying and having babies with Josh. He's still quite young, though, so we'll see! It's strange because I've never been in a relationship like this before. My mam and dad always say relationships are supposed to be fun and easy, but I've never actually had that.

"I want the fairy tale of getting married and having babies - doesn't everyone?"

Charlotte sadly suffered an ectopic pregnancy - which is when a fertilised egg implants itself outside of the womb - with her ex-boyfriend Gaz Beadle in 2016.

The blonde star was rushed into theatre after doctors realised she was experiencing the pregnancy complication and the traumatic time resulted in her becoming depressed.

She explained recently: "Everyone would be more sympathetic because they would know what happened. And a normal person wouldn't have to watch the man who was the father of their baby having sex with someone else on TV...

"I've felt sad before and I've been heartbroken and I've been stressed and I've thought I was a little bit depressed at times but this is all of those feelings jumbled together times a hundred. It's the most intense feeling I've ever had."
